Possible due to your Xbox 360 overheating.

Does it still work?

If things don't revert back to normal after you move the Xbox to a more spacious area so that it has more room to breath then you should give Microsoft a ring and ask about getting a free repair.

i found out what it was,but i cant explain it

it seems that the laser slip over the disk over an area that was that well read
instead of getting the message over cant read disk maybe its dirty

the xbox360 restarts and then you have to restart it again because it locks the dvd drive

no idea why this happens.
