Xbox Keeps Freezing
Posted 15 August 2003 - 12:39 AM
Now i dont know if this is my xbox, hard drive my dash or what. I was playing wolfenstien about 10 mins ago and it froze then i could hear my hard drive...it made a constant sound like it was stuck, so i dont know is that my hard drive, is it defective.
Then sometimes when i reset games it freezes and never gets back to the dashboard.
Does anyone know whats going on????
I would say it runs fine about 90% of the time, but every couple times out of the day a game will freeze, and its really annoying.

|also just to be sure, i had a problem of freezing and it turned out there were some bad cahce files on the Z partition, i would suggest goin thru and deleting the cache off the X Y and Z partitons as they are supposed to be deleted anyway|
so any Data on X Y and Z can be deleted? or are there supossed to be cache folders on each partition. i'm having an issue with freezing, i feel it's because of corrupted cache. any feedback appreciated

If your hard drive is making anything other than the normal activity noise it is bad. A hard drive that is about to go will give you the freezing problems that you have.
|i think u need to patch all the new games or they freeze|
I have just about every game that there is and have never had a problem with any of them freezing when playing from the hard drive. Actually I had a problem with one, and that was because I was transferring the files through FlashFXP to my PC then the xbox. Once I used a utility to copy right from the XBOX DVD to the XBOX HDD it was fine.
As long as you have the latest bios you should not need to patch any games.
I would say if you have a bad hard drive, try swapping out for a known good and see what happens, that will tell you for sure.
