Oblivion Games on Demand. Disc is Unreadable?! Seriously MS....

Ok I'm really sick of this. This should not be an issue. If I download a game STRAIGHT from YOUR marketplace to my HDD with no disc being involved, it should not say it cannot read the disc. Of course it can't read the disc, THERE IS NO DISC! I have wasted a good 10 hours on my dashboard, deleting, reinstalling, patching, deleting again, downloading a useless file that is the same size(why you would tell me to do this, I have no clue...), then yet again, reinstalling Oblivion. OVER AND OVER. And yet everytime I try and leave the Imperial Sewers on a new character, the "disc" is unreadable. This is just completely idiotic. IT SHOULDN'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM. THERE IS NO DISC! Say its because its corrupt all you want, your system of Games on Demand is obviously flawed. Is there ANY chance of you fixing this so I can actually play a game I bought?

Okay, this sounds like a memory issue, and not an issue with the download itself. First off, can you try clearing the cache on your console after deleting the game, and then try it again? You can do so by following these steps:

Delete the content
System Settings > Memory > [select storage device] > Games > [select game] > [select content] > Delete

If the content is not in the above location, try looking in the Games folder for “Unknown Game”. Delete this and continue with the steps.

Clear system cache
System Settings > Memory > Highlight HDD, Press (Y) > Clear System Cache > Yes

Restart the system

Redownload from purchase history
Account Management > Download History > [select content] > Download Again

If that doesn't work, I'd be interested to try 1) formatting the HDD (in which case you'll want to back your save files up onto a USB device), or 2) trying the download with a different HDD (if a friend has one you can borrow) or a different console.

Please let me know how it goes!

Mister F, It's definitely the games on demand version. I downloaded it 4 times, even called Capcom like support asked me. I will try playing it with a different account, but I already tried the license transfer thing and it hasn't worked either. I will let you know what happens.

Hey Light Speed, can you please clarify? You have the GonD version of Oblivion, correct? If so, have you ever had the disc copy of the game? As for Skyrim, have you tried all of the steps listed here?

Hey mate, what was the issue with the disc-version of the game? And you said the Marketplace version worked fine for 24 hours? What happened when it stopped working properly?

My suggestion at this point would be to try a USB device configured for use with Xbox 360. Try downloading the game to that USB device, to see if it allows you to play the game without issue.

Hey Roc, to be sure, is this the Games on Demand version? I only ask because of that line you included about paying to download it. If so, does the same issue occur for different profiles on the console? You may want to create a free account to find out.

Have you ever figured this out? I am having the same freaking trouble and I am dang sure not going to waste $30 just to download a game that doesn't work. I've tried every freaking step. Downloaded it 4 times already, deleted all files associated with it, called xbox twice. This is freaking ridiculous.
