WHY WON'T MY XBOX LOAD BATTLEFIELD 3???

I just bought a copy of Battlefield 3 today and both discs do not work. I can get the game to start and show the intro video or whatever but I can't get to the main menu on either disc. But it works on other peoples xbox we even traded the game in for a new copy and still doesn't work. I've tried cleaning out my cache I've even tried disconnecting from xbox live and that still doesn't work. My xbox is a fairly new xbox I bought mine at the start of this year it's a 250gb XBOX and even could play gears of war 3 on my xbox so WHY WON"T MY XBOX PLAY BATTLEFIELD 3!! ANY SUGGESTIONS???

I can download the game on to the hard drive with no problems, and the game plays and gets to the press start screen, but it still freezes on the loading screen

Have exactly the same problem.  On my second set of discs, cleared cache a couple of times, tried running without the HD upgrade, tried installing to HDD...NOTHING WORKED...  

I'm massively disappointed.  Any ideas I didn't try, Please let me know.

exact same problem here. The only way I can get it to load is to put in call of duty black ops go into multiplayer wait for the lobby to populate, pop the disc out and put Battlefield 3 back in. This is the weirdest problem I've ever had an I'm on my second set of discs

It could be your Xbox's compatibility with the disc. This problem occurred to those who purchased Gears of War 3 and tried to play it on a older model Xbox. I would consult 1-800-4MY-XBOX and see what they can do for you.

I have the same problem. Its not a freeze though. I can still access the Xbox menu which I normally can't do when it freezes. I'm super mad about this especially after the price of the game. I have an Xbox360 elite. About 3 years old and battlefield3 worked fine on it for a long time. No updates for battlefield were installed recently. Haven't played battlefield in about a month and now it doesn't work for no reason. Looks like I may have to crap down EA's neck again.

Hey there Alpha! This threads a little old, and it sounds like you are having a different issue altogether. I suggest making a new post in our 05 - Playing My Game forum for better assistance with this issue. Thanks!
