The only thing i can think of is taking the disc back and exchanging it for another gears of war 2 disc and try that if that one does the same thing then it appears the xbox doesn't like it thats all i can suggest :)

If you have the problem where the Xbox 360 will not read your discs then you need to stop the sensors overheating and to do this you can send it back to Microsoft or fix it yourself

Brand new game Brand new XBox, Freezes during load screen


The best solution would be to call microsoft at 1-800-4MYXBOX (I think that's the number, but you might want to check at xbox.com) and tell them your problem. I'm thinking it's the Left 4 Dead disc because from your question it runs world at war just fine. Try using a friend's L4D disc or rent it. And see if the problem occurs. I hope this helped solve your problem.

Xbox not working.. Play DVD instead of Play Game


I have the same problem but since my xbox is out of warentee and I have 0 dollars here is a couple of ways i found that helped my xbox play disks that it didnt wanna play: first putting it on its side will help if it makes large circle scratches on it second if you open and close the disk tray a few times then turn the console on and off it seems to work when the consoles comes back on. I found it helpful if it was being particularly stubborn to play a game if you disconnect the internet it tends to work a little better

Disc Unreadable


Your laser lens is going out and needs replacement. Either replace the whole drive (but switch out your old circuit board into the new drive) or buy a new laser and install it in (model number is etched into the bottom of the laser).

You have to switch your old board out of the old drive into the new due to Microsoft having "Keys" locked into each drive so you cant fix your system easily. So remember to keep the boards seperate and switch the old board into the new drive and install the new drice... should fix it nicely.

Xbox 360 won't play one type of disc.


Are any of the disks new? If so you seriously need to call Microsoft and demand an explanation.

Not trying to make you look stupid, but just in case make sure they are gears of war for the Xbox, not for the pc

Madden 08 is unreadable with my hard drive connected


Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.

Unreadable discs xbox 360


Most likely a DVD drive problem. Call 1-800-4my-xbox and they should take care of it for you...especially if the console is fairly new.

Hope that helps,
