Something tells me that there is a memory, GPU, or CPU problem or heat build up. Send it into Microsoft and it will take 4-6 weeks for them to send it back or they will give you a new one. Call and ask them for details.

    Follow-up: Be sure to take out any disc in the drive and your hard drive... You might not get it back from them.

My game wont read on my xbox 360


I believe you can use a DVD cleaner without voiding your warrenty. If you have a warrenty then call Xbox tech support to get it fixed. And if you don't buy an extended warrenty for $50 and then call them and tell them you need your Xbox fixed

steps to be followed.

  1. step 1 Purchase a DVD lens cleaning disc.
  2. Step 2 Turn on your television and Xbox just like you normally would to play a video game.
  3. Step 3 Open your Xbox's disc drive, placing the lens cleaning disc in the drive face-up. A lens cleaning disc works by sweeping small brushes over the laser lens surface. These brushes are located on the bottom of the disc; be careful not to touch the brushes---the microfiber brushes are delicate and can become damaged easily.
  4. Step 4 Close the Xbox and let the machine power up; make sure your television's volume is turned on. Your Xbox should automatically take you to the system's standard CD player menu. If this does not happen, select the menu manually using your Xbox controller.
  5. Step 5 Begin playing the first track of the cleaning disc. Listen carefully, because audio directions will play indicating the steps necessary for properly using your cleaning disc. Each brand of lens cleaning disc will have different steps, but they are typically very simple, involving tasks like skipping ahead to different tracks or briefly putting the CD in fast forward mode. If you cannot hear the audio directions, consult the written instructions packaged with the disc.
  6. Step 6 Remove the cleaning CD after you've followed the audio directions---a typical cleaning cycle only takes a few minutes, and the audio directions will tell you when cleaning is complete.
  7. Step 7 Carefully place the lens cleaning disc back in its case, avoiding damaging the brushes on the bottom. Lens cleaners can be used multiple times, so plan on using the cleaning disc regularly to help avoid future problems with your Xbox console.

Xbox freezes


This is usually because some games are on DVD media and some are on CD media. CD's are single layer media while DVD's are multi layer media. This means it is easier to read a CD than it is to read a DVD. The concept of a DVD is to have several semi transparent layers of data. It is sort of like taking a few CD's stacking them together and smooshing them into a single disc. To read the 2-4 layers of data you must ignore the previous layers and pay attention to ones deeper in the disc. DVD drive might be going out 360 dvd drives do go out more then they should.

My xbox 360 freezes within minutes of playing need for speed undercover... it froze once while playing midnight club los angeles and now my disc has a perfect circular scratch all the way around it and...


hi there, The scratches on your disks are usually caused by the laser Assembly on the Hitachi dvd-rom. If the console freezes on other games it may be over heating. Please contact Microsoft for warranty support and get the system repair. If you are no longer able to get warranty support please contact me and i can assist you with part numbers, where to order, and required tools. Good luck
