No mate I havent...Dont wanna sound patronising but you didnt drop it or end up scratching it somehow? Also it could be your xbox having a problem reading the disc, try it with other games and if they freeze aswell, i'd send it back. Check for scratches first though.

Good luck,

I don't have GTA 4, so I can't say I've had the problem. But I'd say to check for scratches/marks on the disk, if there is, clean the disk gently with your top or something smooth. If it has lots of scratches on the disk, then I'd suggest taking it back. If it has no scratches, check any other games, and if you have the same problem, then its most likely your Xbox. Hope this helps!

If thats the only game doing it, try installing it to the HDD, and play it off there.

@randolphScott u can't install if its damaged, trust me. also, check if there is a scratch that goes around the disc in a circle. those are the dangerous scratches. if thats the case, go to blockbuster, rent the game, install it and use your damaged one to have in the disc drive for the 360 to recognize, thats what i did with COD5

Disk read errors are quite common. Its strange as there doesn't seem to be a pattern that I can see. My friend has had disc read errors with games that I have never had issues with, and vice versa.

Does it do it everytime now?

Usually you can just restart and it works again. Mine always has.

I get disk read errors with CoD:WaW, brand new game, not a single scratch on it. It seems to me that these errors with unscratched disks started around the time NXE came out.

I don't know? From personal experience NXE does not seem to have increased or decreased the about of disk read errors for me personally - but then they do not happen very often for me anyway.

That's what I though at first, but it only kept on happening when I was playing CoD:WaW, plus I had the unable to read disk error while I was playing XLA game off my HD while the CoD game was in the console.
