I'm certain some people here own an Xbox quite like myself, however I am not sure you can solve my problem since I know so little about it. I know very little about technology as well, so small words shall be used to avoid looking dumb.
You see I popped in my Call of Duty: Black Ops disk and started playing, went to Multiplayer, Xbox Live, get in a game, and as it is in the loading screen, it freezes. I turn off my Xbox and turn it back on figuring it would reset the whole mess but alas it did not. The screen stays on the "Xbox 360" screen that appears when you first turn the system on and it doesn't change from there. In other words, I don't go to the dashboard.
Now, this isn't exactly the first time my Xbox has acted stupid. Ever since December 2009, it has had trouble reading disks, and as time went by it got progressively worse until I had to open the tray six times for it to finally realize there is a disk inside of it.
So, I was wondering, if by some amazing chance someone happens to know how to deal with this problem, please tell me what I can do to fix it. A thousand good things will be brought upon your children, believe me. If not, thanks for taking the time to read this.
