Fallout 3 GOTY question....

So I picked up the GOTY edition of Fallout 3 because it was super cheap even new. My copy for some reason has a problem being read in my system. The DLC disc worked just fine, loaded up without issues.

The main disc however, I have to eject it five to ten times before the Xbox would read it. I wondered if it was my system, but every other game I have works just fine. I checked the back of the Fallout 3 disc, not a scratch on it.

What gives? Did anyone else have this problem? Also, does anyone know if I can use the Games On Demand version to play the DLC from the disc? I have the GOD version, and wasn't sure if I could access the DLC with it or if I needed the actual disc.

Anyone?

If you have the DLC installed on your HDD, than you can use any game disc to play. I would suggest returning it if you can, and getting just the game since you have the DLC installed. As far as why your xbox wont read it, some discs have whats called an "invisable burn." Its weird i know, ive had tons of discs do this to me. The store should take it back no problem, thats what I would do if it were me

Some games are harder to start up, like if my xbox 360 starts to get dirty inside then the first game that I start having trouble with is Black ops 2, then after a while I start having trouble with other games. But you could play the DLC with the God version if the DLC is installed on your hdd.

you could try installing the game disc. it will definitely help with fallout.

i also used to have a problem about 1 year back where the box just blatently refused to play intro cutscenes. jittering and skipping seconds at a time.

then one day it fixed itself.

back on topic now...
