ok so i tried the 2nd option and i got passed the intro and to the press start screen this time before it gave me the same error :( so is it safe to assume that i will not be able to play my game until a patch is available? my only other option is to play without my hdd and not being able to save my progress and that is not acceptable lol

You are more than welcome buddy. Lookout for a patch and keep your eye out for any news from tech support over on 2K's website. On top of this, you can submit a request to speak with a 2K support staff member and take this up with them. You can see the option along the top of the website I provided you.

 

It may however, be due to the fact that your console has trouble reading discs. Though I am still leaning towards it being an error that a title update will fix, given how many people are reporting the problem. Hopefully this is resolved soon enough. If you need any more support, don't hesitate to come back.

 

Take good care.

Many thanks,

Cloud

Lol In this instance I wouldn't panic. I just did a bit of research and you are by no means the only person suffering from this problem. In fact, a patch was released for the PC version of the game to address this very same issue. I am going to go out on a limb and say that this is something that a patch will fix via a title update. Can you tell me if you have tried the 2nd suggestion that I mentioned in my previous post?

 

Many thanks,

Cloud

My guess is that there will be a patch. It seems too much of a coincidence that this problem has been patched on the PC and loads of 360 users are having the same problem. 2K games have made no announcement as of yet so be sure to follow their channels. There is another step I would like you to take, could you delete the games install from your HDD (not your save data, just the install) and then try to play it.

 

I have seen a few instances were playing the game without it being installed on the hard drive, fixes the issue.

 

Let me know :)

Thanks

It may help to start your own topic for personalized help GadRASTA.... This topic is outdated now. Some games Require a HDD for download....   GOOD LUCK!!!

i have the same problem. I cant play any of my games due to the 4gig S model not allowing for installing. and also when i do try to install it on a flashdrive it says disk could not be authorised about 90% installed. so my collection of games are gathering dust and its sad. no game works properly. 5-10 min of playing it says disk authentication error and the best part is at times it doesnt load the game but says disk authentication error. Please help.

Have you tried putting the HDD back on and seeing if you can still play?

If you can Winner!

If you cant, have you tried the other steps CloudStrife suggested?
