So I bought Skyrim a few days ago, was really enjoying playing it, worked just fine until I left for two days (my xbox and games were untouched while I was gone) and all of a sudden when I try to load my game it says, "Game disk unreadable". But when I try to start a new game, it loads and shows two different text things, and then freezes my whole system. I know it isn't the disk because I returned and replaced it with a new one, but still does the same thing. I have tried unplugging everything and plugging it in, unplugging my flash drive, updating, clearing the cache, and nothing seems to be working.
Note I haven't actually tried any other game disks yet, so it may or may not be the disk drive(which I'm hoping it's not) but I'm going to try it right now and then post an update)
It's not the disk drive, I was able to load and play Fable III without problem.
