Gears of war 3 Disc issues?

Hey,

My xbox 360 seems to hate gears of war 3. I've purchased 4 copies so far, and 90% of the time I insert the disc into the xbox I get an open tray error.  The other 10% of the time it either randomly decides to work, or gives me an unrecognizable disc error.

The disc i currently have is perfectly fine, no physical damage, no finger prints, nothing. The 3 discs prior to this one all had odd looking stains on the disc, like white splotches scattered around.

I have tried putting other discs into my console, and they work 100% of the time ( such as my cod 4, which has been through hell and back ).

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Sorry for the slow response, i didn't have access to a computer.

I sadly do not have another xbox 360 console to try it on. However, my cousin's gears of war 3 disc works perfectly fine on my console, and as i have said, this is my 4th disc with no such luck.

if you have an old xbox 360 then sorry to say but its time to buy a new one, old xbox's have isues reading new game formats due to wear and tear, that will be why your xbox will be saying unrecognizable disc or open tray

I know for my problem, I can play any other game.  I can also play games in the new XGD3 format that Gears 3 is on, such as Space Marine, with no hiccups.  I don't know if you're interested, Concrete, but I tried to document in my own support thread other threads where people have, from what I can tell, an identical issue.  Scroll to the bottom and you will see the links.
