We had all these problems right after the update and MW3... Ended up sending the console in for replacement..I think the update screwed everything up andf they won't admit it...

Can you try clearing your console's cache, and if that does not help, try removing any corrupted content from the hard drive?

ok not being rude again but surely since every single other game i have AND recently bought has worked on my Xbox and continues to work this leads me to think that its definetly not my Xbox and therefore dont need to pay the rediculous £65+ on sending it in for a repair it doesnt need!! im sorry but hundreds of thousands of Xbox's, old and new, cannot (well highly infesable) all need a repair at the exact same time!! correct me if im wrong but this problem only really started to shoot up when that MW3 disc was placed into people's Xbox's.

@chase72 i got i think a 07 or 08 model havent really had it more than 3 or 4 years. this is just ridiculous if our Xbox's do need a "repair" they should be free of charge esspecially if you have a brand new Xbox because i say again thousands of Xbox's and Playstations CANNOT i repeat CANNOT all need a repair!!!

@codenamezero just tried that and still doesn't work :/

@Paddy: how old is your XBOX?

I'm running a 2007 XBOX Pro... got problems with MW3 and Gears. This is the weird thing: my games run fine if I don't run the mandatory update... (but I can't connect to LIVE). This is what I did after erasing all traces of MW3 on my HDD:

-I cleared my cache

-Ran MW3

-Did not run the update (got disconnected from LIVE)

-Was able to play the single player campaign, right where I left off on Tuesday night

-Tried to run Multiplayer - got "Disc Unreadable" error after the mandatory update

So I'm in the same boat -- "What to do now MS???" Tech support's answer (all three times I called in the last 3 days) was, "You need to send it in for repairs." Unbelievable.

Urmm, wasn't there an update a little while back that made loads of games unreadable on old xbox's ?

think it allowed developer to add in game code to check the console had not been hacked , I'm guessing maybe this is one of the first games to have that code in its software, so rasieing this glitches ugly head ?

If you have tried the disc in other consoles and the disc unreadable error continues, then the disc needs repair. If you have tried the disc in other consoles and they play fine, and you've tried the steps I mention above (clearing cache, checking hard drive for corrupted content) and you've tried all other steps in the standard disc drive troubleshooter, then the console is in need of repair. You can request a repair, here: http://support.xbox.com/xbox-360/troubleshoot/repair/repair-process

I have installed both games(GW3/MW3) to my hard drive - have played thru GW3 and Online with no problems - I am planning on play MW3 this weekend.

It does sound like something is wrong with the console. :(

Edit: Or something is wrong with the new disk format..

Have you tried installing the game to hard drive to see if this corrects the problem?

Also try clearing the cache.. (normal stuff when things don't work)

When you say this is the 3rd disk you have, you have taken each back to store of purchase to get a new one?

Try this before a repair:

Go to System Settings - Memory - Highlight the hard drive

When the hard drive is highlighted press the button combination "LB, RB, X, LB, RB, X".

This will remove the current install, the Xbox's automatic response will be to re-download the updates. One the current install is removed, the console will restart and begin the re-downloads.
