    Default The Curse Goes On!!!!!!!!!!!

    today i was playing morrowind for an hour or so and then my xbox just froze and i couldnt move or do anything so i shut it off for a couple of minutes turned it back on it was playing good and all and then about the same time it froze again

    so i went to a movie (Mr.Deeds which is a kick ass movie) and came back and played for awhile again maybe an hour and a half and then it froze again

    i have played for longggggggggg amounts of time and it has never frozen before or got a dirty disk error wtf is going on im telling you i think like some gc and ps2 fanboys got together and put like a curse on all the xbox so they would break because they dont have our beloved xbox

    anyways whatta ya think my xbox is broke or what? (just remember my xbox has never done this before and i have played for hours at a time and this happened after like an hour or so)

    Well its not really broken!! It might be the disk, cause I know I got the same thing with Morrowind, so it is only the disk!!

    its happened to me 2 times in about 60 hours of play. seems to be (at least for me) infrequent enough to be tolerable.

    Morrowind froze 3 times today and then when I just turned it on a message appears saying the Xbox can't recognize the disc as a game or dvd. Hope it stops freezing.

    well, i've had my xbox since launch and i had never had any problems with freezing until morrowind, so with my sherlock holmes-like deduction i'm gonna go out on a limb and say its.........

    MORROWIND

    but i'll put up with it since its the best rpg i've played in awhile


    *and if project ego/fable has the same issues i will gladly set myself on fire
    gone but not forgotten.....

    dude...it almost sounds like a corrupt hd file for morrowind....the only fix for this is probably "GaSP" delete your character and start over....I would start a new game w/ new character. Then see if it freezes....if that dosn't work....exchange the game.....if it still does it exchange the xbox!

    It seems that when your saves for morrowind reach near 200 blocks, that's when a lot of people are experiencing this. I'm not sure, but my saves were near 200 blocks, and suddenly they went back down to 160 and everything was fine. When they hit 200 again though, I started getting the dirty disk deal. It's something w/ morrowind, not your xbox. If you hear your box start to cache a lot of data from Morrowind, slow down your movement to try and let the box catch up. That's one of the suggestions mentioned in another forum anyway, seems to work though.

    if it is a cache issue then saving your game and then turning the xbox off sould release your cache! This shouldn't be happening so quick after starting a game...still think its a corrupt file.

    WAIT!!

    Ok, it may be a corrupt file on there, but alot of what I have been seeing has to do with the OXM disks..Have you ever played any? If you have, then it is on your hard drive. Delete the OXM disk files that are on there. This maybe the end to your problems. Try it out first. I say this just so you don't have to go and remove your character...Let me know how you make out.

    I have been having the same problems with MW been playing about 80 hours so far and just in the last day or so it's been locking up so what's the consenus on a fix? I've tried to clean the lens and deleted my MW saved games down to about 4. What's next?

    Has anyone contacted OXM and asked them why their disks mess the XBox up? This is something that they should fix if they want people to keep getting their mag.

    Very bad news that sucks. Anyway if I were you I would go to xbox.com and check it out or if it gets really bad take it back. Does it happen with other games or is it only morrowind?
