The Infamous Gta San Andreas Dirty Disk Error.

Game or add-on you are having issues with: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Date you bought the content: July 11th 2012
Purchased with points or credit card: 800 Microsoft Points.
Specific issue you are having: I Purchased Grand Theft Auto the other day and let it install that night. The next morning I woke up and rushed downstairs to start it up and finally play the game. Upon the finish of the first cutscene when Cj is put into the police car I recieved a weird error message saying the disk could not be read because it is dirty or damaged. So... I searched it up on the internet and tried a number of different things all day yesterday. Some of the things I did were: Delete the game, Clear the cache, restart my xbox and reinstall.. Once that was done I started it back up just to realise I wasted my time. I repeated that twice and then tried deleting my profile and recovering and then deleting the marketplace data. NOTHING WORKED. So.. My question is: Is there anyone out there that can give me a definite fix? Or have I, along with thousands of other people been scammed out of 800 msp? I really want to play San andreas.
Any error code or message you are receiving: Dirty or damaged disk.. When it is a marketplace download.

Hey there Fresh! I understand you are having some trouble playing San Andreas. We have a new solution to try out. What I want you to do is delete the San Andreas game file, clear cache, and then download at least 9gb of other files (games, demos, etc.). These can be things you already purchased or free demos, so don't worry about spending any extra money. Once that is done, download San Andreas from your purchase history again and try it out. Please let me know how that goes, thanks!

Hey Gwyther. At the moment I am installing 8 game demos from the Xbox Live Marketplace which adds up to be around 10 or 11 gb. I will get back to you as soon as I know if this is going to work. If it does not I will be bummed. Been wanting to play this game for years haha.

Thanks again.

To help support Mister Gwyther's response because it might sound weird. When you delete content off the HDD it actually doesn't delete it completly. What it does is tell the console that this space is free for content to go. So by downloading the extra 9gb of data it means that we are hoping the 9gb you download will over write any corrupted data or old data from the bad download of GTA. In that case it will force the GTA to install to a different part of the HDD when you redownload it.
