Here's the story. I have been getting intermittent freezes and error code 12's from my Xbox for about 6 months or more. Generally if I leave it sit for awhile, it will work again, but usually freezes after around 45 min to 1 hr of play. I made the decision to replace my DVD drive, and yes I know this is crazy, but I replaced the Phillips drive I had with a cheaper Thomson drive, we are so close to Xbox 360 I just didn't want to invest more money than I had to. Now the new Thomson drive is having basically the same issues, freezes, last night I got the dirty disk error in the middle of a game. Someone has advised me that the problem lies with the IDE cable, not the dvd drive. Could someone please give me further advice. Thanks in advance.

Well IDE cables are super cheap so why not just try it?
