There are many reasons your xbox would do this you could have a scratch on the disk you can not see If this is the case try waxing the disk. yep that's right just take the disk and wax it with a standard automotive wax like turtle wax, meguiars, simonize 500 is my favorite.

to start lay your disk on a soft rag make sure your disks laser side is up use a micro fiber rag put a small amount of wax on the rag and gently work it in a circular motion on the scratched disk allow the wax to dry and then remove with the clean part of the rag. do this at least 2 times the disk should work better yes you can still see a few scratches but the wax fills the scratch and allows the laser to get a direct hit on the cd without refracting it. you can do this to any cd dvd if you have a skipping problem.

the second most common problem is over heating for this take a can of pressurized air open the dvd tray on your xbox and spray a small amount in just enough to blow dust out two or three small shots
you can do this to the processor heat sink to this will blow off any dirt dust hair or other contaminant
and keep heat down. remember you do this at your own risk and if you are not old enough to buy canned air or auto wax have a parent help you canned air remember you can damage your system if you blast it so hard it freezes moisture in the air it will short out your motherboard and kill your system

Does it play other games? does it do this with all your games? If not then it's the disk; you may not see the scrach or defect

Disc won't play


As the Wii uses discs that can be scratched, dirty, or otherwise damaged -- it's important to first check the disc.

Look for fingerprints or other smudge marks. If you have dirty marks on the disc, you can wash it off with regular dish soap and water. Not too much soap though. Make sure you dry it off with something very soft [like a microfiber cloth] before you put it back into your Wii.

Second -- scratches will stop a disc from playing... or the disc will play until it gets to the scrached section then give you an error. Check and make sure there are not too many -- or deep scraches.

If a scratched game won't play through but other games play just fine -- chances are the disc is bad. However, if nothing is playing through on your Wii, not even a new game, there is a problem with the Wii's DVD drive. There is a laser in the drive that reads discs -- and many other moving parts in there. The following website sells the Wii DVD drives. It's not too difficult to replace yourself:

My assassins creed2 keeps freezing in the same spot. This is the 2nd copy of this game and it freezes in the same spot. please help!!!!


Well it sounds like your disc is officially garbage because it's probably scratched. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Freezing in the last big battle for the first island.


If that doesnt help you will most likely need to replace either the game(if the disk is scratched) or the lens if the problem happens in more than one game.

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

Depending on how deep the scratches are determines if they can be fixed. There are many pastes and polishes, even a sander. For scratches that are not too deep and don't reach the reader (inner part by the hole) I used a banana, sounds crazy but actually worked great. May not work on bad scratches though. An instructional video is seen here.

Toothpaste is also known to work.
