Another victim of the Forza 4 Disc read error code

Seriously! What the hell?! I was about to purchase the February DLC car pack today but when I tried to boot the game it wouldn't read the disc.

NO. There is NOTHING wrong with my console

NO. There are no scratches or smudges on my disc

YES the disc is original

NO my console is NOT modded

YES. I updated to the latest firmware

NO. I am NOT willing to send my console for a 120 dollar "repair" or a replacement disc when mine is PERFECTLY FINE.

This is strike 2 Microsoft. Fix it. Till then I'm not spending on 360 games or DLC till this is fixed.

Hey there Quince. I understand you are having some issues playing Forza 4 on your console. I get that you are frustrated, but if you will permit me, I'd like to have you run a couple tests to see if we can narrow down the issue here. Can you borrow another copy of this game and see if you have the same issues on your console, as well as trying your copy on another console. Also, try removing your storage devices and playing the game like that. Just to clarify, you are not having issues with any other game discs, correct? Let me know and we'll go from there. Thanks!

I have tried taking out the HDD from the console and booting the game. It gives me the same error. I can't however, borrow a spare copy and having a full time job doesn't help. A few days ago Microsoft had an update but alas, no dice.

Still have the same error. And yes it's just Forza 4 that's going haywire. I mean sure I was able to catch up on GT5 but I find it bland. Any other suggestions? I'm certainly out. Buying another copy (even a used one) seems like a waste of money really....I hope Microsoft does something about this. I'm reluctant to buy Mass Effect 3 that's coming out soon in fears of having the same error.

Thanks for your reply Quince. I see you have tried removing your storage device but to no avail. If nothing else works out for you, I do recommend trying a different copy of the game. Perhaps the store you purchased it from would allow you to exchange it for another copy? Since this is the only game that doesn't seem to work, trying another copy will help us determine if it is the game at large or just that disc. Let me know, thanks!

I buy my games from Amazon. I'll see if I can have it exchanged. Turned on my Xbox today to find yet another dashboard update...I hope it fixes some issues...hopefully re-flashes the optical drive and allows it to read Forza properly (Could be wishful thinking)

It doesn't hurt to try it again after the update, but do let me know what happens after you replace your disc. Thanks!

I am also getting this issue on my white xbox360 with white tray cover. brand new disc, I even returned to target for another disc and same issue. there appears to be a problem with certain DVD drives I think. It can't handle the anti-piracy issues put into the disc. funny how the legitmate customers like us are the ones that get punished...
