Disk Scratched By Xbox 360

I just got my Halo 3, and Xbox 360 about 2-3 months ago, and my Halo 3 worked fine, but today when I looked at the back of it it had 2 Perfect Circles all the way around. I did not remember seeing them there before, but I thought maybe I just didn't pay attention. When i put the game into the Xbox 360 it at first played fine, but after about 5 mins it closed the game, and said Disc unreadable. Those 2 circle scratches were the only scratches other than the 1 little scratch. I have no idea what happened!!

Did you move the xbox while it was on? My son did that with Scene it game installed and it scratched the disk. All that I did was take it to Family Video where they have an machine to refurbish the disk and it only cost about 2 bucks. The game works perfectly now.

My Halo 3 disc is scratched, i have tried all the tricks and it still wont work, i need some help


If this ever happens to you I recommend going to Blockbuster or something and renting a copy of the scratched up game for one day After you have done this follow these steps. 1. Insert the disk, make sure it is readable i.e. playable 2. In the My Xbox section of the Xbox Dashboard scroll all the way to the left until you have the option "play game" now press Y 3. When you press Y you will enter the game details section, scroll down to the Install Game option. 4. Wait a while for the game to install (this will take up some drive space but it shouldn't be too horrible) 5. after the game is installed you Xbox will use the downloaded files to play the game. Insert your original scratched up disk and try to play it. You should be good to go from there. 6. If this still doesn't work your disk is beyond repair

X box 360 halo reach freezes in middle of game.


take the hard drive on the top off, blow in it, make sure that there isn't dust build up and then put it back on, check your disk also and make sure it isn't scratched, also ensure your harddrive isn't filled up, ensure there is memory left so your system isn't overloaded.

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!

It may be that the CD you use is scratched. Put it against the light to see if anything is on there..

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.
