Games don't load or Dirty Disc error

The last two titles i have download aren't playing, the Halo 3 freebie gets jist to the start of the Game and then crashes with a dirty disc, and I bought Skyrim yesterday and that only loads to a black screen and freezes the console.

I have an XBox 360 Slim with an official 250GB HDD, I'm not so worried about Halo, but I paid money for Skyrim and it should work.

I have deleted the games multiple times, I have cleared cache multiple times.

Is there a better maintenance option for these drives, beyond formatting it and seeing what happens, I don't really want to do this with about 100+GB of content on there to download again.

What you could try to do is remove the hard drive and use a usb stick to download one of the games to rule out whether or not the issue is being caused by the hard drive.
