ODST: Disc-read errors and A Quick-Fix Solution

A growing number of users are receiving Disc Read errors on copies of Halo 3: ODST.

According to the Bungie forums the problems are occuring on the ODST disc mostly on older 360 Elite models, rather than the Halo 3 multiplayer disc.

Later on in the thread, a Bungie employee asks for Private Messages from users experiencing issues, detailing exactly what's going wrong so that Bungie can remedy the issue.

A quick fix for the solution appears to be... (Halo 3: ODST, Xbox 360)

My Elite
is a 2008 Model.. will this affect me from playing ODST?
pixelsword  +   1918d ago
It shouldn't, I think...
I think they mean the older Elite; maybe like early 2007, if you have an early 08' you may be affected, but I doubt it, though. If you do run into any troubles, just follow the directions on the link and it should work fine. As a matter of fact, I'd just to it anyways; you can always delete it when you're finished.

I'll have to double check, but I think it's only 3.5 GB to install; I really didn't pay attention, I was just glad to find a solution.

Put a towel over the disc. That should work.

Why is this an issue? This is Microsoft's biggest exclusive this year. You'd think they'd take care of their loyal fans.....oh wait.

lol love how they joke about the AI driving, hell i was driving the AI the other day and he shot a wall with a rocket launcher and killed us both. I tried to get a screen shot of it but it didnt work out to well.

This game sucks
what a waste of money. I just finished it with my friends on Legendary mode just so one guy could get the recon armor.

I read this game has been ready since march, so why didn't they test it and fix all issues? More and more it's a shame this isn't a DLC anymore. It's a full blown piece of junk and waste of money.

well.......

you can always try the infamous wet towel solution :P

I dont get it?
Why are there issues with a lot of MS exclusives? Sigh i'm just glad i made the switch to PS3 because dealing with errors and failures all the time after spending hundreds of dollars is extremely frustrating. But a lot of MS xbox fans are young and prolly didn't even pay for the system and that explains the denial i see over the net regarding MS's piece of sh!t. Disc read errors???? and the disk isn't even scratched? lol

hahaahha yeah cool
just like when I bought a ps3 and the update caused uncharted to keep freezing. which is a true story. Im glad you switched, but Im glad I have both.

I also dont care because I dont wanna get ODST anytime soon and I have a newer 360. You shouldn't care because you "switched" or whatever.

I'm not gonna lie
The Uncharted freezing issues about drove me up a frackin wall. SO frustrating (especially if you're playing for trophies).

the patch that caused uncharted to freeze? the one they patched a few days later? yea, sony took care of us on that one. we didn't have to manually fix our broken discs.
