Black Ops 2 installation is 'corrupted' and disk read errors, happening the same time....

So I've played BO2 for a while, no problem. 

But, since yesterday my xbx freezes when I'm loading a MP game.

So I checked the installed game in the Storage section and it says that the installed game is corrupted.

I tried to fix it by removing the installed game and reinstall it, but then I got the unreadable disk error (at 17% every time).

I checked the disk but it doesn't have any mayor scratches.

Next ting I tried to do a format, clear system cache and the LB RB X LB RB X command. 

Still the same issue.

The strange thing to me is, the file corruption and the unreadable disk error started at the exact same time.

I also had an disk unreadable error before with CoD4 but whenever it was going to say 'disk unreadable' you could hear the console trying to read it.

If the problem was just an unreadable disk shouldn't it just say so when the game freezes instead of the entire system to freeze.

And when I'm installing the game you can hear the disk drive just stop reading the disk when it says disk unreadable at 17% in my case, I recall that the previous models would keep trying to read the disk several times instead of just stopping, like when a DVD that is not entirely readable you can still hear de Disk drive trying. Dunno if this maybe changed with the S version.

FYI, at a friends xbox the game works fine, same goes for installing.

Hello x DutchBAAS nl,

Welcome to the Xbox Support Forums.


Let's try another storage device.

To configure another Storage Device, follow these steps:

Note: Make sure you Removable Storage Device is empty before you configure it to your Xbox. The system will erase ALL items that are stored on your Removable Drive.

1. Insert your Removable Storage Device in one of the USB Ports.

2. On Xbox Home, go to Settings and then select System.

3. Select Storage, Memory and then select USB Storage Device.

4. Select the option Configure Now. After selecting Configure Now or Customize, you system will check if the Device will work correctly.

5. Now, use this device to store your Call of Duty Black II data.

If it works correctly here, there can be two causes of this problem:

1. Your Hard Drive is broken;

2. More corrupted files are present on your Hard Drive.


If it works correctly on your Hard Drive, please search and remove the other present Corrupted Files:

1. On Xbox Home, go to Settings and then System.

2. Select Storage and then Games And Apps.

3. Check every item on your Hard Drive if it's infected. You can reconize corrupted files by a Yellow Icon.

4. Select the item and then press Remove.


Met vriendelijke groet,

Rick N.,
