or just go to the website.

I did that when my demo for CoR was broken.

Try boiling it. It sounds stupid but sometimes it works. Use something to hold it in the water making sure not to touch it to the sides or bottom. Leave it in there for about 30 seconds. Sometimes theres residue on the disc from manufacturing. Works for some people doesnt for others. If not you got a faulty disc. Request a new one by writing them or going to www.officialxboxmagazine.com

If you have other OXM discs and you've played them, look into your hard drive through the dash board manager. Remove all the OXM "temp" files.
When you load an OXM disc into your Xbox, it leaves a file on your hard drive.. it may even be a zero block file, but it's there.
I had this problem before, and before I resorted to boiling the discs, I removed the files the discs left behind and everything worked fine.

I think you guys are looking past the most obvious comment. You have FOUR x-boxes? holy cows. thats like three more than what I have. Why you need so many?

Also, if you have 480p, 720p, and 1080i all turned on to "yes", that can screw with the oxm discs, too...that is, if you have an HDTV. I had this problem and figured it out...I simply changed them back and I was in action. Some discs don't support 480p....why it is that way is completely beyond me.
