Dirty disc error with halo 3 on the xbox 360

Alright chaps hope all is well!

 

wednesday the 17th of october i purchased a new copy of halo 3,

despratly wanting to play it i confinced my wife to go to bed early so i could get a good few hours of heavy slaughter under my belt.

getting past the first intro screen the game crashed and came up with an error telling me the disc was dirtyso i cleaned the disc with a soft cloth like it suggested and continued to load the game.

now this happened on a number of occasions during the night with not one minute of game play, so i took the game back and got it replaced with a new one.

so last night i tried the same, getting my miss,s to go to bed early so i could play the game, and so and behold the same sodding problem.

so i tried a number of my older titles with no problem at all.

 

pease help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks for your help regarding this problem.



    there was no update on loading either of the disc's.



    after reading on diffirent web sites which included bungie i've realized that this is'nt a problem which has accured just with me.



    I've since taken the game back to the shop and swapped it for pgr4.



    does'nt mean i've given up on h3, just waiting for the problem disc's issue to be sorted.

Once you put halo 3 in your 360, a update will come up. if it doesnt, you might have some issues playing halo 3.

Thats very weird....

On both of those times you got H3, did you happen to move, or did the console fall while the game is play?

Do you normally have the console vertically or Horizontal?

Here is some info I found on xbox.com
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909819/en-us

I would also try calling 1800-4my-xbox if its the console doing this, you can have it replaced, if they try to charge you money you can turn to :
http://www.xbox360-pros.com/

I've heard good things about them.


But you may be under warranty which you can get free replacement.

Good Luck,
Cam

Xbox 360: Halo 3 won't start at all.


If the game wasnt new there could be a scratch on the Cd that has been buffed out but isnt visible, i advise you to contact the buisiness where you bought the game and exchange the disc or try getting it buffed again for 6$. If they wont replace the game for free try a buff so its cheaper, and if all doesnt work but im sorry you will need to buy a new copy.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

Cant play campaign


Halo 3 is buggy disk , I have 2 brand new copys of halo 3 for testing repaired drives
and found that of all the 360 I repair, benq drives will read 99% of the time the hitachi
seem too slow on the seek time to get a
lock/read resulting in a dirty disk error.

Halo 3 does not play on all 360
its just a picky disk .There seem to
be two xboxs thoes that will load halo 3
and thoes that will not.

Sorry this may not be very helpful

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!

I Just powered up my Xbox 360 and started to play a game of Halo 3 and the screen started to turn all white and green.I shut of my Xbox 360, thinking that would solve the problem. However, I turned it back...


IF THIS TRUELY ACURES EVERYTIME YOU TRY HALO 3 AND NOT ANY OTHER GAME, YOU HAVE ONE OF THE RARE BAD DISC'S. SEND IT TO MICRO SOFT AND THEY HAVE A PROGRAM CALL DISC EXCHANGE, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN YOU XBOX.COM SERVICE SECTION ON THE WEB. YOU'LL BE PLAYING HALO 3 FINDING YOUR SKULLS IN NO TIME. THE ERROR MESSAGES COME FROM TWO PLACES. EITHER YOUR DISC WITCH IT WILL STATE DISC ERROR, OR CONSOLE ERROR, WITCH USALLY GOES AWAY. CHECK ALL CONECTIONS BEFORE SENDING THE CONSOLE IN FOR REPAIRS. REPAIRS COULD TAKE TWO TO THREE WEEKS. HAPPY GAMING AND HOPE TO SEE YOU IN GEARS OF WAR 2.

2 clean the disc always clean your discs after and before you use them.

3 take off your hard drive and any memory cards and reset xbox to factory settings

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.

Halo 3 prob wont let me go past level 4 says disc error


you can try installing the game onto your hard drive and then playing it, or try to get a new copy of the game. the xbox number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX

the only way i know to clear the hdd is to do it manualy from the dashboard.
