is that the only game that doesnt work?

try cleaning the disk (very light amount of windex or other glass cleaner)

check for scratches ...

try it on other machines ...

if it looks good and doesnt work on any other boxes, then you can probably take it back .. otherwise you may be out of luck ..


either way you should just mod your xbox, chip it and stick a new hdd in there ... best thing you could do!

How old is your XBOX? I had a really old one and there is some sort of software or hardware issue that makes it have these errors. It only seems to happen with the newer games. I think the older consoles have a hard time reading the newer programming or coding on the games. I had this problem with HALO2 and Fable.

My local EB games store was issuing a $115 credit for used XBOXes at the time so I traded in my console, a controller and a few old games and received an in store credit of $145. I just used that credit to buy a new XBOX and haven't had any issues since.
YMMV
