Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Grand Theft Auto 4 disc "unclean and unable to read".

Several minutes into game play my X Box 360 is telling me that my GTA 4 disc is unclean, and unable to read. The machine also tells me in the same satement, to wipe the disc down with a soft towel/rag. There are no visible scars or scratches on the disc, other then one small blemmish in the middle of the disc, about the size of 1 mm(1/8inch).Would that be enough to bring the entire game to a screaching hault?
Also is it possible that my machine scratched this disc, considering it hasn't left my machine since the date of purchase, April 29th?
Thanks for your time.

I have the same problem buty only on gta4 xbox 360.. we don't have a hard drive only a memory stick thing and notice small blemishes appearing on the disc. it freezes, stops and starts sound continues but the picture and everything else kind of locks... its the second disc we have had from the same supplier.. Thought it was the x-box 360 itself but other games play with no problems whatsoever.

    Rockstar has released a FAQ regarding the copy protection that will be used in the PC version of GTA 4, here are the details
    • Activation via Internet (1x per system, no limits, Fallback for systems without web access)
    • Copy protection Securom: The original disc is required for playing (Execpt: Download version of GTA 4, for example from Direct 2 Drive)
    • Requirements for playing (singleplayer): Games for Windows Live account for saving/achievements (1x free creation), original disc, Securom runs in the background
    • Requirements for playing (multiplayer): Active internet connection, Games for Windows Live account, For uploading videos: Rockstar Social Club Account.

    • If you don't have web access or don't want to connect your gaming PC to the Internet, Rockstar wants to offer a not yet specified system to activate GTA 4 via another PC with web access. Details are supposed to be available on launch.
    • For the normal GTA 4 (PC) version with disc installation, activations are unlimited. But the original disc is required for playing.
    • This does not apply for legally downloaded versions of GTA 4: Depending on the vendor the following is possible: Five parallel installations with the possibility to revive a "free" installation, if an old installation is deleted. For this purpose the customer has to have web access with the PC GTA 4 is installed on.
    • Those playing GTA 4 with an illegally hacked version have, according to Rockstar, to fear that the game will not be fully playable.
    • If you change two major components of your PC (like the graphics card or the CPU), you will possible have to reactivate GTA 4.
    Phew that was a mouthful I can tell you, whilst some will find it disappointing that GTA 4 uses such an invasive DRM system it does seem as if Rockstar has tried to weigh the need to protect their work against the inconvenience to the customer and for the boxed retail version there are no activation or install limits.

    It should prompt you upon first start up if you want to play, simple question.. Have you got the original GTA 4? TBoGT is a DLC Expansion pack.
    If you have, follow these steps: 1. Load up GTA 4 2. Press Start > Scroll across to "Game" 3. New 4. TBoGT

    X-box keeps destroying games


    This is a obviously a problem with your disk drive. Report this to microsoft and take them take your xbox for repairs its probably the only solution besides replaceing the drive yourself which i do not recommend unless you know what your doing. but with GTA and GH being the only games damaged im thinking jsut bad luck. Do you play these much more than other games? do you leave them in your xbox to often/ play to much?

    Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4


    I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.
