Fable,
try takeing off your HD play the game and see what happens if this solves your problem then you will need to delete everything off from it all of the saved files. If you have done this allready, and the system works without the HD in then you have a Defective HD or something has gone wrong with it. You will need to contact MS to see if it is under warranty.

NB123,
your system has done what most first and second gen systems do. They freeze up you will need to contact MS and see if your system is under warranty. They have just upped the MF warranty to 3 years so i think you should be ok. The red rings which you should have three of tell you that your Hardware has failed.
What happend if your interested is that over time the heating up and cooling of your cpu gpu and other things has caused the heatsinks to fall out of place.

Likely that for some reason the Xbox is having a hard time reading the disc and it is spinning the drive trying to search for files on the disk. If you aren't having the same issue with other games then recommend to resolve this issue then simply install the game onto your hard drive and the game will then only need to be accessed for verification only and the game will be played off your hard drive and not your disk drive. Here are the instructions for insalling a game to your hard drive:
Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If the game starts, exit the game, and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press Y on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.

    A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.

Play a game from your hard drive
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.
  2. Go to My Xbox, and select the name of the game you want to play.
Note The game disc must be in the disc drive, even though you have installed the game on your hard drive. The console will automatically play the game from your hard drive, but the disc has to be present.

My 360 will let me play a little bit of a game at a time. after playing maybe 5 or ten min or so it will freeze up. the last two times that it froze up it asked me two clean the disc, or contact xbox3660...


You specify the xbox 360 do you know what year model you have? If it as earlier model then likely you are running into system instability with many reasons for the error being possible.

Does the error only appear with one particular title or across your game library?

If it is just one game then attempt to install the game onto your hard drive and play the game after that. To install the game onto your hard drive you will need to do the following:

Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd


Hi

By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.
