Certain Game Freezing

My console randomly freezes up on certain games.

For me, its mostly Skyrim and Borderlands.

Is there a reason why? My console also gives me disc is unreadable on arcade games sometimes (gave me one while playing a DLC on Borderlands yesterday).

Should I send it in for repair, or get a new one? Mine ran out of warranty.

try clearing your system cache. The freezing can be from your Disk Drive

As for the DLC unreadable it could be your HDD

Give microsoft support a call to see if they can help. If your xbox is really old then why not get a new one

[/quote] Do you have more than one profile, playing/saving the same games being played?

@Triple No. I have multiple, but only play 1 (which is what I'm posting with)

@ Steel Already tried clearing cache. Also, Skyrim used to freeze A LOT more with it installed, if it matters.

Here are the steps to clear your system cache

  1 Navigate to the "My Xbox" channel on the dashboard menu (the console's 'main menu').

   2 Scroll right, to the last page which is the "System Settings" page.

   3 Select "Memory" from the list of options.

   4 Highlight the hard drive and hit Y on your controller.

   5 Select the option to clear the update cache and perform maintenance on the memory unit.

   6 Restart your xbox 360 console.

Your problems with your arcade games sound like a Hard Drive error. Try moving the games over to a flash drive and playing them from there. If they were then there's an obvious flaw with your Hard Drive.

do your games freeze during actual game play? or upon loading?

@trple

DURING game play. I installed Skyrim, and it didn't freeze within 30 minutes, so it must be the Lazer.

This sounds like it's an issue with your hard drive directly.

Have you attempted to remove the hard drive at all and then tried to play with only a USB Flash Drive plugged into the console to run saved data off of? If you haven't try that out, easiest way to see if that's actually the problem so you know what you need to get repaired/replaced.

Well, when I mean didn't freeze within 30 minutes, it didn't freeze at all. I just played for half an hour to test it.

Greetings, Mr Off Topic. As Hassassinade suggested have you attempted to play your games on a USB drive? I'd be interested to know if you can successfully play the games from there. Give it a shot and keep us posted. :)
