Hello everyone;
Lately I have been having problems with my xbox
- Games that ran on my xbox hard drive  use to 100% now sometimes I would get the dirty disk error, or the game would freeze. I would have to keep restarting the xbox until it works. (I tried erasing the cache, sometimes it would work, sometimes it wont)
- Sometimes when I turn on the xbox I get error 21, or 13. But after restarting it once or twice, it works
- Sometimes the xbox freezes randomly
- Also when I am playing a video on XBMC at times it will automatically stop the video. Unless i play it using DVDplayer
What is/are problem?
It use to work perfectly, until recently
A little info about my xbox;
it has a 500gb WD hard drive, formated using xbox partionior 32k
Any help would be great

Sadly sounds like a dying box to me. I have had one in that had those symptoms and it was modded by me with a 120gig drive in it i redid the drive and nothing. I tried a new 160 i had and it did the same thing. Finally it just died on me and i was out $50 dollars cause i gave the guy back his money and told him there was nothing i could do and he was rather pissed but he got his money back but yeah it sounds like the actual xbox hardware is dying.
