Hey there,

 

Are your games installed to the Hard Drive or are you playing them straight from the disc? Sometimes the Xbox performs better all around when high-taxing games, like racing games or FPS, are installed from the disc to the Hard Drive. You may want to give that a shot to see if it helps with your freezing troubles. To do this:

 

Install a game on your hard drive

1.Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

*Note After you insert the disc, the default action is to automatically start the game. If this happens, exit the game and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

2.From the Home hub, select the game in the drive tray, and then press X on your controller.

3.Select Install.

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

*Note Installing an Xbox 360 game might take 12 minutes.

 

 

Some things to consider and remember for this process:

•Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disk space.

•After installing a game on your hard drive, you still need to have the game disc in the disc drive when you start the game.

•Installing games on your hard drive improves load times and minimizes game disc access.

•You can install games to a USB flash drive or to an Xbox 360 4 GB console. However, some games will not play correctly.

•Original Xbox games cannot be installed on an Xbox 360 Hard Drive.
