I havent had any problems with any of my GTO disks.
At the same time I'm using a Sony DVP-S530D and not an Xbox. And that sucker has played everything fine so far.
I'm sure this has been said, but an Xbox and PS2 are not the most ideal platform for playing DVD's. They'll play most, but it seems anime discs in particular stress some of the conventions a bit. Cheap DVD players (under $100 US) and ones like the XBox an PS2 seem to have more problems than others.
I'd also check the disk itself to make sure there arent any scratches in it. I had a problem with a pretty scratched Kenshin disc that came with my Kyoto boxset. A quick buff of the surface (make sure its done right or you can ruin the disc) and its played fine since.

Sounds like an incompatibility issue to me. Like Kellory said the Xbox and PS2 aren't the ideal platforms for DVDs. There is a big difference between a DVD-ROM drive and a DVD Video Player.

I did not have those problems playing it on my PC. Though I did have a defective disc 2 that simply would not load up on anything except occasionally my iBook.

I would. It just sounds like screwy encoding. My PS2 would do it on some DVD's because it's not that hot of a DVD player.

The Disc has worked before going the whole distance with not problems before.
But I had only watched the disc once before.
Again All the other GTO disc I have display the language of the subtitles and which language you have it when you change while playing. On both my XBOX and Apex player it just has the numbers making you guess which language you're changing it to.

Now I'm getting confused. Is the problem occuring on the Xbox, on the Apex or both?
From what I gathered, I tought you said that when playing it on the Xbox, it sometimes plays correctly and other times not. While the Apex player doesn't have any problems with the disc.

Just popped this disc into my xbox player. It plays fine, with no freezing. As for subtitles, they can be changed perfectly well in the setup menu, but if you want to change them on the fly using the display option, they do indeed act weird.
As you mentioned, the audio settings display doesn't change regardless of the track that's playing, so you won't get confirmation of the track you selected. But since you can still change tracks, it's no biggie.
The subtitles option was buggy for me. At first, I was able to switch subtitles on and off on the fly, but when I tried to switch them again, it stopped working, and I was forced to go back to the setup menu to change them.
The xbox isn't the greatest DVD player where playback is concerned. Dunno, there always seems to be more aliasing when I watch anime on it than with my set top player. However, assuming your xbox player isn't damaged, there should be very few retail discs (http://www.activexbox.com/xbox/dvd_compatibility/index.shtml) that'll play on your set top player and not your xbox.

My vol 4 doesn't play in the Pioneer 16x DVD drive, but does in the LG DVD player. I got it as part of the first collected set. I got quite worried when I failed to play it in the computer, as I'd hat it too long to do a return.

Not sure if it is that particular disc, but I did have problems with one of my GTO discs. On one player (Toshiba 5109) it played fine no problems at all, on my other player (Panasonic RP56) it didn't play right at all, in fact it didn't even think the disc was a DVD at times. I thought the laser was going bad in the RP56 but it plays all my other DVDs fine. I never played GTO in my RP56 till last month when I was rewatching it.
