Buying a new console may never be a good solution. Sending it into Microsoft for repair is the smartest choice, unless you have the skills to open your Xbox 360 console, and repair the reader by yourself. Yes, your game reader sounds like the problem. You may look up videos on youtube on how to disassemble your Xbox 360 console. Don't get mad if you mess up on your first try, it takes some work.

Please contact me if you have any further questions, or problems.

You probably jumped during your workout which makes the xbox "shake" causing the disk to rub against the drive, it's a known issue for years. Get the disc replaced.

Fallout 3 xbox 360 freeze


If your playing on a disk clean the disk with clean cotton or a clean cotton clothe and the disk reader with a vacuum with brush head. Installing it on a hard disk would also sometimes prevent the game from frequently freezing. Freezing randomly or at a certain scene is a glitch on the game. Hopefully it will be patched soon.

Why does My Xbox 360 Freeze when i play MLB 2K9


If it only freezes on that game, chances are it's the disk that's causing the problems. I've experienced that some xbox games act up if only the slightest scratch is on the disk. If there is, either take it back or pay a few bucks for Best Buy or some video rental place to repair it for ya.

I don't know if the disks have a flaw but if you tried two brand new games both with freezes is sounds like it's your 360.

Xbox console reads disks then says unplayable disk


this is the laser unit that is faulty, it either needs replacing or you could try cleaning it with a cotton earbud to see if that helps. if its still doing the same after cleaning you could also try adjusting the laser power, sometimes after its been played for years the laser loses power and you will have faults such as this. adjusting the 'pots' on the laser itself to around 282 will help greatly.
if you need a guide just email me or let me know via my website at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk and i will be more than glad to help you.

Lose parts of the video


One reason could be that your disk is scratched, if so take it to a store and have it resurfaced. Or do it yourself.
