Determine whether the disc that you are using is causing the problemTry to use several similar Xbox 360-compatible discs in the console to determine whether the disc that you are using causes the problem. To test whether the problem is caused by a specific disc, use a disc of the same type, such as a game disc, DVD movie, or music CD. If the problem does not occur when you use other discs, that specific disc might be the cause of the problem.

For disc-specific issues, check the disc for any visible signs of damage or dirt. Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces with your fingers. Clean the disc by using a soft cloth. Lightly wipe from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.

If this problem occurs only when you use the first disc that caused the problem, and if cleaning the disc does not resolve the problem, search the Microsoft Knowledge Base to determine whether that particular game disc has any known issues.

Do not put the console or the power supply on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings. If your Xbox 360 console is in a poorly ventilated location, turn off the console, and then move the console to a location that has sufficient ventilation, such as a table or an open shelf.

    Keep your console away from heat sources, such as televisions, computers, monitors, and other electrical devices. Turn off the console, and then move it away from the heat source. Or, turn off the device that is generating heat, and then move that device away from your console.

    For more information about how to locate the Xbox 360 console, see the Xbox 360 instruction manual, or visit the following Xbox Web site:

    Determine whether an accessory is causing the problemTurn off your console. Remove all the accessories that are attached. This includes the Xbox 360 Hard Drive. Then, turn on the console to see whether the problem still occurs.




    If the problem does not occur when the Xbox Hard Drive is disconnected, try clearing the Xbox 360 Hard Drive cache.

    For more information about how to do this, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    If the problem occurs when the Xbox Hard Drive is connected, and if clearing the hard drive cache does not resolve the problem, create a new gamer profile. Then, test to see whether the issue still occurs. If the issue does not occur when you use a new gamer profile, the problem may be related to the original gamer profile or to saved game information for one or more games that are associated with the original gamer profile. To verify this possibility, delete the saved games for all games that show this problem when you use the original gamer profile.

    Determine whether the problem occurs for online games onlyTest to see whether this problem occurs only when you play Xbox LIVE. To do this, play some games offline. If the problem occurs only when you try to use Xbox LIVE, the problem could be related to your Internet connectivity.

    Determine whether the disc that you are using is causing the problemTry to use several similar Xbox 360-compatible discs in the console to determine whether the disc that you are using causes the problem. To test whether the problem is caused by a specific disc, use a disc of the same type, such as a game disc, DVD movie, or music CD. If the problem does not occur when you use other discs, that specific disc might be the cause of the problem.

    For disc-specific issues, check the disc for any visible signs of damage or dirt. Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces with your fingers. Clean the disc by using a soft cloth. Lightly wipe from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.

    If this problem occurs only when you use the first disc that caused the problem, and if cleaning the disc does not resolve the problem, search the Microsoft Knowledge Base to determine whether that particular game disc has any known issues. To search the Microsoft Knowledge Base, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://support.microsoft.com http://support.microsoft.com/) In the Search Site box, enter the text of the error message that you received, or type a description of the problem. Then, click Search

That sounds like a problem with the disc itself. It either needs to be cleaned or buffed to get any scratches out.

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.
