    360 Can't Read Game Disk


    A few months ago I bought all three Fable games from a used game store, and they were in excellent condition. I went home and put the first game in the disk tray and shut it. At first it required an update for the game, but during that time for some reason
    my Xbox wouldn't connect to live, so after it kept failing the download I just left the Xbox stay for a few months (school started back up and gaming was set aside). Recently while reorganizing my room I decided to start up the Xbox again and let it gather
    updates I missed after months of not being used. After all the updates, I tried to play Fable, but it keeps coming up with an error message saying,

    "The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again."

    I did the thing where I went through the marketplace cache to clear it out, and there wasn't any active downloads listed. I don't want to go and buy the game on the Marketplace since I already bought a physical copy of the game. My guess is that something
    happened with the console since it kept disconnecting from the internet months ago, and somehow messed up and thought the game update was already downloaded. Has anyone else had this problem, and can I have some help? The disk is scratch free and it did ask
    for an update to the game when I first got it, so I'm going to guess that it is readable.

    :)

    backwards compatibility

    Wait, in your tags, it says "Unreadable disk". If the 360 gives an unreadable disk error, it means just that, it can't read the disk.

    If you play an xbox game that is NOT backwards compatible, it will FLAT OUT SAY "THIS ORIGINAL XBOX GAME IS NOT COMPATIBLE". Not "this disk cannot be read".

    Try cleaning the disk. Are there any scratches on it?

    My copy of Batman Arkham Asylum was playing and fine and now it wont read the disk. It is noisy trying to read the disk now and then says "Unreconized Disk". Ay other 360 games seem to read fine though.

    360 Can't Read Game Disk

    Try renting a copy from your local redbox / mom and pop video store. If it reads that , your copy is just defective and you can rectify this by installing the rented copy to your HDD.

    Keep us updated on the issue.

    Finally some good news for xbox rumors, no DRM, plays used games and more

    I wonder why they just can't make the next xbox be able to read 360 disks. Is it because of the different chip that they are using? This is assuming that the rumors turn out to be true.

    Backward Compatibility Issues

    Hey there on 360 that option isn't available to forcefully install the disk. You can install the disk but it's not required it will read the disk and if it encounters an error it'll crash the game and send you to the dash / home.
