It feels like I've tried every method possible, I:

Exchanged the disc at Gamestop
Cleared my cache
Reformated my HDD
Put a fan at the back of my 360 so it doesn't overheat
Move the save data to Cloud

It will freeze once every hour or so. I only installed disc 1 play and I have the old (fat) 360. Idk what I'm supposed to do at this point, I don't wanna go buy a brand new 360 with the next gen consoles right around the corner.

I tried that, still freezes. I've seen some other people post about freezing as well, how come Rockstar hasn't put a patch or something

Works great on my PS3 which is going on 4 years old now. I keep it in as best a shape as I possibly can.

My 360 is in great shape, every other game works good. There has to be a way to fix this...

Man that sucks. I have an old white 360 arcade. I have the install disc on the HDD and the play disc on a flash drive and I have experience little to no pop-in, smooth framerate, and no crashes whatsoever.

Have you tried running the play disc completely uninstalled?

You should also do a speed test for your flash drive if you haven't already. Digital Foundry had suggested a read speed of at least 15 mbps.

Sounds like my experience with Skyrim on PS3 when it first came out. Had to wait like 2 months just for a good patch. FU Bethesda.

I don't know what else you could possibly do to improve the performance. I remember trying all sorts of crap with Skyrim. I cleaned out my vents, deleted half my hard drive(all music and TV I don't have use for anymore), cleaned the crap outta the disc I even restored default settings and nothing worked.

Then they patched it and now it works fine. So you may just have to wait for a patch.
