I have had Fable 2 for some time as well and I recently decided to download "See the Future" and "Knothole Island" as well. Once I had downloaded these two new quests my Xbox would not even load the game. I have tried starting the console w/o the hard drive attached, performed maintenence on the hard drive, erased the downloads and updates and then downloaded them again and the console will still not load the game at all. I thought maybe the disc couldn't be read by the console since that was the message that kept coming up, but it worked in a console @ my local game store. I even bought a second disc to try and that would not play either. Can anyone provide some insight on my problem it would be much appreciated.

Do you have the game installed? I've had similar problems with other games(Mass Effect being the most recent) and by reinstalling it the problem went away and i was able to progress past the load screen and the area i was stuck in.

Since your Xbox is brand new, you can just install Fable 2 to the hard disk of your xbox 360. I didn't have this problem with Fable 2 - but that's maybe because I installed it to the HD from the start. Fallout 3 did freeze on me, but installing it to the HD fixed the issue. Don't get any ideas though, you still need to insert the disk if you want to play ;-)
This is how you do it:
Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
Scroll down to My Xbox
Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance.
You'll also note that the game screen contains all kinds of great information about the game such as the achievements unlocked and featured downloads available for the game.
