Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Particular Disc Won't Spin in 360

I just came back from the store with a used copy of Halo 3 and the damndest thing keeps happening. Similiar to a problem answered on here, the game will sound as if it's trying to read but fails to and displays the open disk tray message on the xbox 360. I tried other games however, dvd's, etc. and there is no problem. While I do have an older console, I don't see a disc drive error leading to a problem with just one disc (first time this has happened as well). I fully intend on returning the used game (Halo 3), but if I get screwed out of not being able to get another copy, what recommendations are there to remedy the situation?

Clean disc. Use toothpaste, smear cd with it, let it soak for 10 minutes, wipe clean.

To clean laser lens eye, use rubbing alcohol and cotton swab and gently rub the eye

For some reason i can play sierra 117. also the catch skull is mi


This sounds similar to what happened to me, except I couldn't load some multiplayer maps.

If you know someone that recently bought Halo 3,(within a week) ask him/her to return it with your defective game in the case. He/she will receive a new unopened Halo 3, and you can take your friend's recently opened copy of Halo 3.

If you don't want to be cheapskate, you can borrow Halo 3 from a friend, and save it on your hard drive. After that, you can use your defective disc just to play the game. Unfortunately, if you save it on your hard drive, it supposedly makes the game slower when searching for multiplayer matches online, and other things.

If you don't care about saving money, you could buy another copy of Halo 3.

Halo 3 matchmaking


Halo 3 Matchmaking could have something to do with the Maps as it usually does. Try changing from Matchmaking to Custom Games and then back again and see what happens. Also if you have the Heroic And Legendary Map Packs then try re downloading them without deleting them. If none of this works try a complete new copy of the game and make sure it isnt installed to your hard drive.

How can i fix my broken halo 3 disc over the computer or and on the xbox 360 can you help please the thing i dont get is that i can play xbox online for halo 3 but i cant play campian at all can you help...


First get some disc cleaner, and clean any scratches. If that doesn't work, the only way fix your disc would be to mod your 360, and to use a program called xbox backup creator, to make a backup of your original copy. If you go this route, get a Samsung SH-D162C, or SH-D162A if you have SATA. This is the only dvd-rom that can be altered to read 360 discs, and you might need it if your 360 drive can't read all of the Halo disc. Note: for the obvious reasons you run a high risk of getting booted from xbox live, I got booted and never once played any of my backups online.

Dirty disc error with halo 3 on the xbox 360


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
