X-Box I have a original X-Box and recently I noticed that some games would not play, or freeze in the middle of play, or in the case of Halo 2 the options would disappear from the menu as I would scroll over them.

I got a xbox as a gift from a friend a few years ago and it was handed down to me. Games i only played at that time were lego star wars and halo combat evolved. Then 1 year after i started playng halo 2...

Best guess? It over-heated and fried the harddrive. Its toast bro, Microsoft is not going to honor any type of anything on the original X-Box anymore, no way. I have an original X-Box that works perfect, i'll sell it to you for $30 if you'd like =D

X box 360 halo reach freezes in middle of game.

take the hard drive on the top off, blow in it, make sure that there isn't dust build up and then put it back on, check your disk also and make sure it isn't scratched, also ensure your harddrive isn't filled up, ensure there is memory left so your system isn't overloaded.

For some reason i can play sierra 117. also the catch skull is mi

This sounds similar to what happened to me, except I couldn't load some multiplayer maps.

If you know someone that recently bought Halo 3,(within a week) ask him/her to return it with your defective game in the case. He/she will receive a new unopened Halo 3, and you can take your friend's recently opened copy of Halo 3.

If you don't want to be cheapskate, you can borrow Halo 3 from a friend, and save it on your hard drive. After that, you can use your defective disc just to play the game. Unfortunately, if you save it on your hard drive, it supposedly makes the game slower when searching for multiplayer matches online, and other things.

If you don't care about saving money, you could buy another copy of Halo 3.

My XBox 360 freezes

Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

EA Sports Games and the 360

Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

Graphics problem on Xbox 360

I think this is less of an isolated issue but a universal one. As Halo 2 (and I'm assuming the version of Medal of Honour you speak of) are original xbox games, these can be prone to graphics distortion due to being emulated. I often find my Halo 2 campaign mode sometimes "ghosts" or leaves certain outlines stuck on the screen, which is irritating but nothing too major. If this happens in any designated xbox 360 game, search the web for similar problems with the game itself, if not give Microsoft a call. Bring food, it's a long call wait :)
