This really blows goats . . . i finally get my OXM #10 last night when i got home from work, and after throwing away the AOhelL disk, i read a few articls during dinner . . . played a few rounds of Halo online, then i go to play the Time Splitters 2 demo, so i throw the demo disk in the Xbox and it seems to be taking a long time to load then it hits me "Xbox doesn't reconize this disk, make sure it is a DVD, CD, or official Xbox game" blah blah blah . . . so im like, FOK ok so i clean the disk off with a disk Dr. and still nothing, this is the second bogus disk i have gotten in the last 3 issues . . . not only am i wrting to get a new disk but im writing a huge letter complaning to them about this(probly not goign to do anything hopfully them give me a free subscription but doubtfull), by the time i get my new demo disk Time Splitter 2 will be out and its the first demo thats not even out yet, so yeah im really pp!ssed here . . . . anyone else keep getting this problem?

I've never had problems with my discs...maybe your mailman/woman is a homicidal maniac. You should ask them next time they drop by.

Just a heads up guys... the OXM forums are ripe with ****ed off subscribers who are having the same problems as you. My buddy's disc was buggered too and stuttered its way through the entire disc...

I havent received my mag yet but I'm sure the disc will be screwed. Through it has new demos of games that arent out yet, the number and quality of the demos are pretty hurtin...

I'm not overly upset with OXM simply because the sept issue should come out in August not July, but that is a moot point. I say give them their first year for screw ups and quality control...then in the second year if it hasnt improved, drop em...just like a console :)

I guess I'll be watching Lord of the Rings tonight instead of reading my magazine...

if you go to the OXM website, you can order a new disc for free. but this same thing happened to me with like disc number 7 or 8, i forget which one. all i did was wipe it really hard with my shirt, then it worked. so, try that. lol

Ok, for everybody that is in here complaining about the disk not working...let casper here try and help out.

When you play the demo disk, it puts a file on the hard drive for each disk, kinda like a cookie when surfing the net...try and removing your old ones, and this should do it. This is what has caused a lot of ppl in the past to have dirty disk problems with Hunter, Morrowind and such...good luck guys and let me know if it works :)

I use to have the problem awhile back. A few of them would freeze when i tried to go into certain game demos. Hopefully it wont happen again. I would definately shoot for a free subscription.
