Does it happen at the same point in the game every time? That was happening to me because my disk was so scratched it wouldn't play, just froze. It got irritating. Sorry This isn't much help. Maybe try cleaning the disk. You never know.

Sounds like the CD Rom drive is going bad or in some cases the beginning of the end. I had one 360 that was doing that and ended up with the RROD. Sounds like the inevitable if happening on all games. Probably have to call the good ole 1-800-4-myxbox.. Best of luck

Red Ring Of Dead it's what the 360 are known best for if it gets that it need to go in for service. Hope it's not the case but best of luck with it.

Sometimes you send it in and they just replace the drive and other times they send out a refurbished console, just depends. I would think if it's the drive they'll just replace it but who knows. Didn;t happen to get it with an extended warranty from a local retailer did you so you might be able to just take it back for an exchange??? just a thought..
