Hello,

Okay so here is my problem. I got the new MW2 Xbox for Christmas and the first thing I did was install all my game's to my hard drive so it would be quieter to play, faster load times and stuff. Okay, now here's the problem, I let my little brother borrow my MW2 game. So I let him borrow then my friend was hosting a tenth/infection lobby and I was like sure I will go in for the infections there fun to have. So I go to put my MW2 disk in and it say's it is unreadable, I tried booting it from going to game library and clicking MW2. Now what I don't understand is my xbox is reading that it is in fact the MW2 game so why won't it load, oh and I forgot to mention you probably know what happened with the disk haha, scratched to poop. Of course I am mad I am just looking for some answer's to what might have happened I searched around on here and from what I understand I am the only one to post this, please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for taking your time to read this.

-Corson

It wont work now because the drive still has to read the disk to play it. Adding it to your HDD doesnt stop it from reading the disk it just makes it read less.

But then when people burn there game to there hard drive and open up that god thing for Jtag and patch it they can play the whole game with out a disk. I thought when you ripped it to your hard drive it just had to verify that it was the correct game and then it would be done. Correct my if I am wrong I am just looking for answers I won't get I guess.

You are correct, but clearly your disc if far too scratched to even allow that <_<
Maybe you`ll think twice before lending your disc next time.

I don't mind lending them out. I have no problem with that. But the sad thing is it isn't even scratched that bad. I am going to take it to block buster for them to fix it if they can't I will just buy a new one there's no problem with that. I just don't understand why my xbox can read that it is modern warfare 2 in the disk tray then just not read it. It's so retarded. Remind me never to give my stuff to my brother :tongue:

Probably not, as they might scratch it further.

Brasso is metal polishing compound:

Is that even safe to use on a game?? That's what I thought well it's time for a new toothpaste anyway that one was getting boring : ).
