Hi all fellow Fable 3 players,
I'd like to share the problem I have come across with while (trying) to play fable 3.
A few days went by while I explored Albion. One day, after I got a cup of coffee and turned on my xbox, inserted the disk, it could not read it... (game read error)
Sometimes it happens, so i took it out, checked the disk (wich was fine and scratch free, cleaned it... same error... to put it in a fast schematic :
Error --) cleaned disk properly --)
Error --) tried other disk, wich worked fine --) tried the fable disk again --)
Error --) played another game for 12 hours straight with no problems --)
I turned the game in and got myself a new copy, after a good 16 hours ingame (over a 2 day period) I got a game read error again...

At this point I only know it has to do with the game-disk in question, and I'm open to suggestions to what I should do with this copy

I am afraid it's not the game that has a problem but the disk drive of your console...

If it is under warranty I would suggest sending it and they will replace the faulty drive with no charge :-)

If it's working the one time and not the other time its not the disk ..

But he said other games work fine just the fable one. So it may not be the xbox it self.
What I would try is install it to your harddrive if it will let you ;) May solve the issue.

Anyway, do what Ragnarok suggests and otherwise contact Microsoft about it.

well since all the other games work it has to be the cd ... since 2 fable 3 cds have had the same problem it must be the manufacturing of that cd imo :p so il try installing it on the harddisk now :)
