Fix for XBOX360 Freezing for Offline Play

Like many I had a problem whereby my console frequently froze. After doing the following I've had success and not seen my XBOX360 freeze. I'm using an older white console.
1. Plug the console directly into an outlet and not in a surge bar.
2. Clear the cache before loading the game (has no effect on saved content)
3. Connect an external HD via USB. The console will only recognize up to 16GB, but any size HD will do. Ignore the performance message when you connect a larger HD.
4. Transfer any game files over to the HD.
5. Once the game starts load files off the HD and cancel connecting to EA servers. This may or may not be necessary with the above steps. Once you have all the updated files downloaded there is no need to connect for offline play.

Give these steps a try. It worked for me.

Update: It was a short term fix. After a couple of games the freezing has returned. I'm out of ideas!

Thanks. this is an interim fix I guess, but seeing as a major part of this game is its online modes, that's still unacceptable.

The HD may very well allow online play. I haven't tried as I don't play online. Its worth a try.

all my freezing issues are online ccm.

I play other games, with no freezing issues. none. ever. zero.

online ccm is such a mess, but I still love it so darn much. its so much fun. so fun

Have you tried the HD fix? I'm thinking that the game is a memory hog and this is causing the freezing. The next time I play I'll try staying connected to the EA servers and see if it freezes.

On a side note, many years ago I went to the U of Memphis School of Law...
