That is strange. The game may simply be defective... it's uncommon, but it does sometimes happen. I would recommend returning it to the store where you bought it and exchanging for a different copy, if possible.
Hi chrisastig try to save the game you are playing to the hard drive so as to play from hard drive & not from the disk ! this is assuming you have enuf room on ur hard drive to copy the game to ?? You will still need to put the game in (even when playing from hard drive) but i find if its a game you play a lot its well worth doing as it saves on the disc drive/disc spinning whilst playing :-) saves on overall usage of the xbox too ! If its ok reading the disc for the first 5 mins of usage it should be ok to copy to the hard drive to play from. If there is a fault with the disc itself it will tell you when you try to copy it to the hard drive & if this is the case (& its a game you like/play a lot??) then try to borrow a copy just to put on ur hard drive only & use ur damaged disc as the 'required even if playing from hard drive' notification to the xbox that you do own the original copy ! Damaged discs are usually ok for 'playing from hard drive' as the information the xbox requires is very little but enuf for it to allow you to play the game (from the hard drive) You will find it a lot quieter whilst playing anyway ! i think so !
hope this helps :-)
please remember thumbs up :-)
p.s. refer to ur xbox user manual or drop me a mail if you have any problems doing any of the above ??
Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)
The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than
the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an
old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but
if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

I have been using this hard disk for about 6 months now. It stopped
working. The power and the usb cable are connected. I use Windows Xp
and it doesnt read it. And for some reason most of the time when i open
'my computer' and the hard disk usb cable is plugged in 'my computer'
stops responding !! However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the
task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from
explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD
and flash drive. Please help me.
