Re: I get snow on the screen when I play DVDs

I have a feeling it could be the refresh settings on the xbox 360, some games require a different i know Hitman u need to change the refresh setting to play the game. Have a look on the back of the box of the game it should state the refresh rate on the bottom.

hope it helps

Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

Some games have problems being played on my psp

This is because you use a very low firmware.Upgrade it to 5.50M33-3 or to 5.03M33-3.This should fix it.

New game freezing about half way through

I don't think this is your xbox having a problem. This happened to me with Gears of War 2 once I just played over the game in the same spot over and over and it eventually stopped. This looks more severe for you though. It may just be a faulty game so best you can do is call the game manufacturer.

New game won't play.

the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
