    I was moving around my xbox while in the party chat last night (because I couldn't connect to the EA servers, but everything else was running fine). Think I scratched my disc, because every time I try to play my UT / vandy game I get an unreadable disc error. Boom29 was still in the party last night with me to validate my complaints.

    Guess I'm going to have to get disc #2 :(

    That sucks Cheez. Are you going to get it today? If not, I'd be fine with someone playing Vandy for you so long as its prior to tonight. You can even pick someone like whygodwhy1111 so you make sure not to lose;).

    Install to harddrive and it won't read the disk when you try to play

    Try and get another disk that you can install. Borrow it from a friend, rent it, or buy it used and return it.

    When I was playing Mass Effect 3 on release day, my XBOX fell off of a chair. The disc was just in absolutely terrible shape... I couldn't even boot up. Anyway, installing it lets you play a terribly scratched game without any issues.

    Also if you have it installed to HD at home you may not have this problem there. You could also rent for something like redbox to install to this other XBox's harddrive. Then use your damaged disk on boot up to verify you own the game.

    Boom had the error in our game. Luckily was just a one time error for us.

    I know Hastings has a disc repair here. Just take it in and usually they won't charge to put it in their little machine.

    It is a store, there is one in Moscow, Idaho. I assume it is some chain store, I really never went into the store during my seven years on the Palouse.

    Never heard of it.

    doesn't look like redbox has it yet. No blockbusters in the area.

    Don't worry, I never heard of the store until I moved out there. It must be an Idaho thing.

    Found out family video did resurfacing. I started an exhibition game at my sister's place and it seemed to work. Will try to get my game in as soon as my mother lets me have the tv.

    Family Video = ghetto Blockbuster

    Honestly, the only reason I went there is because the guy at Gamestop told me that they had a resurface machine there. Never would have even thought of the place.
