Gears of War 3 unreadable disk

I just bought Gears of War 3 brand new from Argos and I got home to play it but it says it's an unreadable disk!

I put another game in and it played straight away like always, so there is something wrong with this game disk

I went to www.xbox.com/support and did everything the Disk Drive Solution told me to do but it's still not working

The disk is not scratched it's brand new and I'm not sure if Argos can do anything about it, they don't do refunds

I need Xbox support to contact me and give me advice on taking the game back because I payed a lot of money

I've got exactly the same message.  Mine was from Gamestation and I took it back today and they exchanged the game for one in a sealed box.  I have just tried the new one and I am still getting exactly the same message again.

It is the title update that has got an error.  I have deleted the title update from my xbox 360 and the game seems to be loading up fine.

It could be that the game is faulty. I would contact the store and tell them the problem. Just because they don't do refunds doesn't mean they wont make an exception

Executive Mark- Did the error E64 and a lower right red light happen as well?  Do you have a refurbished console? Have you solved the problem.  I having the same issue.  Called "support" was told the update on Gears 3 failed to process because it detected a "modification" which is completely false I have never modified my console.  Also was told that the red light indicates a hardware issue, but doesn't explain why all of my other games work just fine?

I've come to the conclusion that Gears 3 and other newer games simply do not read well on the older white xbox's with the Samsung drives.  Dig around on the Internet and you'll come to the same conclusion.  I gave up and ordered a new slim xbox and the game is working just fine.  The old xbox will just have to be dedicated to old games from gamestop's used rack for the kids/grand kids.
