My copy of Hitman Absolution is freezing at certain points, no scratches and clean - problem with my CD reader?

Hi,

I've been playing through Hitman and recently reached a cutscene where it freezes at a certain point, I can't reach the dashboard and just have to turn it off. 
It's also started freezing intermittently at the home screen, I've cleaned the disc and checked for any scratches, there aren't any!

I'm pretty sure it's a problem more with my xbox as on my friends xbox there's no issue, and it appears a lot smoother. 
Just wondering if anyone else has experience similar trouble  with other games, and if there is a way to install the game on my friends console and then transfer it back to mine as an installed game? Think if my disc reader is the problem this might make things a bit better,

Any advice would be much appreciated,

Have you tried to install the game on your Xbox?

If not, you can try to play the game on one of your friend's console and if it doens't work correctly there, I should bring the game back to the store if you have garuntee on it.

If it works on your friend's Console, I suggest you borrow his game and try to install his game on your Console.

Even if that didn't work for you, I suggest to try out all of your the suggestion that are discribed in this wizard

 

Please give me a reply if this helped or not.

Unfortunately you cannot run a game installed to your friends hdd, as it will only run on his xbox.

Please go through the suggestions listed here:

support.xbox.com/.../xbox-360-screen-freeze

It will hopefully resolve your problems.

Hi there hpgreenslade
 

All the steps listed above by FS x Thunder NL are valid and should be looked in to. If you continue to see issues, be sure to try playing the game with the HDD and all accessories removed and see if that is able to help with the issue. If so then the issue might be the hard drive itself. Let us know if that helps. Thanks!
