For the past one and a half months, I have been experiencing problems regarding Halo: Reach. Roughly, out of every five games, one takes me back to the dashboard with an error message saying “This disc is unreadable”. Longer matches (campaign missions, Invasion, Forge etc.) almost always result in the error, letting me play and enjoy only certain, shorter gametypes (which, as stated before, encounter the error roughly every one out of five games). Prior to getting this message, most of the in game sounds stop working (Commentator, countdowns, most weapon sounds, explosions etc.). This error also occurs while playing in the Noble and Defiant maps.
I thought that it must be my disc (I will admit it is a bit scratched), so I borrowed my friends working disc, installed it to my hardrive, returned it to him and continued playing with my disc. The problem did not go away, so I thought that the solution would be to buy another Reach. I did, but the problem did not go away. I have tried three discs, all of which have encountered the same problem. This makes me think that the problem is with my Xbox, but I don’t experience problems in any of my other games.
I don’t want to buy a new Xbox or send mine in to be repaired, because I simply can’t afford to. I have been putting up with this problem for a while now, and it is just becoming too much of an inconvenience. Please 343, if you have any suggestions as to how I might fix this problem, respond! Halo is by far my favourite hobby but this is really ruining my experience.
