Halo 3 disc problems

When I boot up my xbox and put in halo 3, my xbox makes some sort of scratching sounds. then i wait a few seconds and then on my dashboard it says open tray. there are no scratches on the disc and i have tried cleaning it but it does not help at all. i can get the game to work by opening and closing the tray a couple of times but sometimes it takes awhile and gets boring. when i finally do get the game to start up it works perfectly fine. i have tried putting in all of my other games and the xbox reads them without any problems.

Microsoft has confirmed that if you have either the heroic or the legendary package that these discs are malfunctioned. I suggest you exchange it from the retailer you bought it from or call in microsoft and they ship you another halo 3 free of charge.

When i load my disk, halo reach, it makes a clicking noise and then it scratches the disk. it hasnt happened with any other disk so far. why does it only do it to halo reach?


I had the same problem.
I knocked onto my 360 a few times, and the laser has gone back into position.
No weird sound, or disc reading errors since.

NOTE: Im not sure this is your problem, but its a thing you can try anyway :D

Hwhat does it mean when it wont read one game but will read another


it means the one that wont read is scratched, dirty or defective, my advice is to clean it if its dirty, get a cd repair kit if its scratched or take it back if its defective.

Halo 3 wont work on xbox 360 elite


If i's only the Halo 3 game that doesn't work, and all of your other games do.
Then you should take the game back to the store you purchased it from, and exchange it for a new one.
If it still doesn't work, then I suggest getting a new xbox.
As my brother has the same problem, but with a Call Of Duty game.

Hope I helped!

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2


Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .

How can i fix my broken halo 3 disc over the computer or and on the xbox 360 can you help please the thing i dont get is that i can play xbox online for halo 3 but i cant play campian at all can you help...


First get some disc cleaner, and clean any scratches. If that doesn't work, the only way fix your disc would be to mod your 360, and to use a program called xbox backup creator, to make a backup of your original copy. If you go this route, get a Samsung SH-D162C, or SH-D162A if you have SATA. This is the only dvd-rom that can be altered to read 360 discs, and you might need it if your 360 drive can't read all of the Halo disc. Note: for the obvious reasons you run a high risk of getting booted from xbox live, I got booted and never once played any of my backups online.
