I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.
Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).
Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.
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."
The first thing to check is the disk, are there any visible scratches on the disk ? If so see if you can get your disk resurfaced, many game and tech stores now offer this at a relatively small cost.
Another solution is to borrow the same disk from a friend (or rent from a store) and install it to the hard drive of your xbox, you will still need your disk to play the game but your xbox will be loading the data off your hard drive.
To understand this problem you have to understand that it occurs when your xbox can't read the file you need to play that aspect of the game for you this seems to be the new goblin character, the two remedies above will solve this issue.
this is the result that is gotten when a xbox 360 game disc is inserted into a console or sytem that doesn't recognise the disc. you see as a matter of fact, the cd might seem like a normal dvd disc but they usualloy have some type of special encoding to go with them and this prevents just any cd drove from loading them. you might have been given a xbox 360 with an unofficial xbox 360 cd drive. the best way to go abouth this is by sending it to a repairer and he should fix it. it might require flashing the drive or on the other hand, it might just need a complete replacement of the drive hope this helped you? please rate
do other games work? if not your magnet in your xbox console disk drive may be defective and i would suggest returning it to Microsoft to have them look at it. If other games do work your fallout 3 disk may be severely scratched or the magnetic strip on it may have gotten demagnetized or otherwise damaged and will most likely need to be replaced...sorry
the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.
The disc basically acts as a key to start the engine (GAME) otherwise you could just go rent or borrow games from friends and not pay for them, however the game still plays %100 from hard drive. Also if you take the key out, the engine will turn off.
