Re: xbox 360 freeze up
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.

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.
a DVD lens cleaning disc.
Turn on your television and Xbox just like you normally would to play a video game.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
try to play it on another xbox....might be the cd....if so try to get another cd. if not uninstall and reinstall the patches. or also try to rip the contents of the dvd-rom to the hard drive and play with both disc and hard drive....maybe too much stress on the dvd-rom drive such as overheating or cyclic rundary errors
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.
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
