    I have sort of the same problem, but mine loads ok, then says "Disk Unredable". Does yours do that? It's driving me crazy, i've bought like 3 gears of war 2s already and none of them work.

    I've tried 2 different copies, one I purchased and another rented, this happens intermittantly, I was able to advance and play by playing the rented one trough level 2, then switched to my purchased one and have been playing with little error.. I have lots of games, and this is the only one it happens on...

Complete Insane Easily

When playing Gears of War 2 it is possible for two players to play together in co op. This alone increases your chances of surviving as your friend is better (hopefully) than the computer AI. However it is also possible for you to play on separate difficaulties. Getting your partner to play on casual while you play on insane insures you will have a much easieir time completing the game.

Gears of War 2 Loads but says "disk unredable."

You have a problem with your Xbox. 3 Game discs arent all faulty.
Call a service agent and tell them your Xbox cannot read discs.
