    Re: disc is unreadable

    Okay you really dont need an ipod. But in order for this to work, All you do is RIP a music cd or just 1 song onto your xbox harddrive. Then play any song and just tap the the big X on your controller with your thumb to bring up the playonline viewer option. It should load after you play any song from your harddrive. I never had this problem until I sent my first xbox in and they gave me a certified one. I tested this. So it's all good. By the way you can stop the song after by pressing the X again on your controller and clicking stop on the player in the media section.

    hello everyone I have the fix for this issue works everytime!!! What you do and yes I know this sounds very silly and fake but you must play any music file either through the xbox's media library or via ipod/psp and while it is playing boot into PoL and it will let you in and then you get the typical do not turn off or wil corupt file message..This really does work I did noit believe it untill I saw in two other threads and decided to try it!

    I had this problem and the simplest solution is to buy the first version of FFXI that came out on the 360. It has all the expansions except WotG. It's about $15 on amazon.com.

    Just pop in the old disc, Playonline starts up, barks at you about not shutting down properly, and you click "ok", and move along. I haven't used my Ultimate Collection disc since I bought the old version.

    This also be worth it to try as so far its working for me. I turn off my xbox 360 w/ ffxi disc inside and give it a rest for a few hours. after doing this the game loaded up just fine. so the "unreadable disc" message could be generated from just an overused system. so give it time to cool down, as thats something i never did (usually kept 360 running even when not playing a game).

    thanks,

    Doc

    I tried all solutions but none works. But just now I tried something compleatly new. I signed out from my XBox 360 account using the comand meny just as I started the disc and it worked. I could uninstall POL and now Im installing it again.
    I dont know if it was just a freak thing or if it realy was the signing out that did it but its worth a try.

    I might've missed it in your mini text wall, but did you try copying the disk to the hard drive via the xbox dashboard and running it from the hard drive? If it says something is wrong with the disk after that, I'd think there was something wrong with the xbox instead lol. And by Completely log out do you mean to the FFXI Title Screen or all the way back to the Xbox Dashboard?

    Re: disc is unreadable

    Ok, so I am very new, to FFXI. My boyfriend has been a FF nut since the first game. He got the game about a month ago and got me started on it. Since, at that time, we only had one xbox, we purchased it for the laptop (install #2). There are three of us in the house, and I did not like the pc version, so we decided to get ANOTHER xbox, so all 3 could play. Note: Everything has been wonderful until this point. 2 games, 2 consoles, 2 installs...perfect. Enter scene: Xbox #2. We purchased NEW game and refurbished xbox with HDD. Instal #3...7 hrs later...play...works great. We play til about 4 in the morning...at which point I log out and go to bed. Next morning, Unreadable disc. I call local game store and they tell me to bring game back, they will exchange. Go to 2 local stores (1st one out of stock) and go back home...still no go. Call game store back, they tell me to bring in refurb xbox and hdd, they will exchange. Get there, no more refurbished xboxs. Instead buy NEW xbox and HDD. Bring home...install again...7 hrs pass...plays great til 4 am...again. COMPLETELY log out. Get up next morning (this morning) and try to play and get the unreadable disc. Go online to xbox support. They tell me to try disc in different machine...blah blah blah...then they tell to clear system cache. I do this, upon their reassurance that this will NOT delete the game. It deletes the game. Now I am just starting updates ( 4 hr process ). What am I doing wrong??? This is starting to make me crazy I don't get into many games that my bf plays and we were really excited to play this together. If anyone has any advice...please pass it on.

    Thanks!

    damn well thanks for the advice i called x box live and they said wat you said it could be the hardrive and it only had a 90 day warranty for the HDD. well my other games work just fine along with the x box live preview channel i downloaded so maybe i can get by for a little while longer .

    depends... but if it is the HDD or the system itself, its only going to get worse, nomatter what you do.

    I will say this too, because it happened to me, in that I was getting that error, when I was trying to play the Left4Dead demo... along with a few other demos, and one of my games. Turned out to be my 360, took my HDD and got a new X-box, and it has worked fine since.
