    Do they look at the disc?? My Halo 3 disc cracked about half an inch in the middle...
    My friend told me you can install the disc on your Xbox and then it just reads the serial number, even it it's cracked. Anyoe know about that?

    no. When you put it on your drive, the 360 is going to read your disk for specific files, THEN play it. Not all game content is actually stored on the HDD, and it requires a complete disk. Don't think about swapping it at blockbuster either.

    Try installing it then using your cracked disk. If that don't work you can try swapping it.

    Not really trouble you would just have to pay for a new disk OR either pay for the amount that they think is reasonable.

    I did it with gamefly once. My Gears 1 disc was incredibly messed up but still in 1 piece so I rented GoW from them and sent them my disc and told them the disc was unreadable when i received it.

    Yeah, this amount is probably making up 0.00000000000001% of the ****hole we are in.

    Oh, and you don't download music? Movies? Programs? Games?

    If you say oh I'll just do it once like everybody else that builds up to a ****load.

    I haven't (illegally) downloaded any music, movies, programs or games for a pretty long time actually.

    Huh? :?
