Can anyone explain this? I was playing Borderlands for a couple hours today (which I downloaded of the "games on demand" marketplace) and I got a disc is unreadable error. The same thing happened when I booted it up again too.

Sorry, but that's lol-worthy!
Don't you hate it when a signature looks like part of the post?

Start a game disc that is readable and see what happens.

Re-downloaded, still got the error. I'm hoping if I just give it a rest it'll help or something. This isn't the first time it happened either. I got a disc is unreadable on a demo months ago. I said then, and now "are you kidding me!"

Can't blame anyone for thinking it's funny. It is pretty laughable.

lol And I thought it was weird when a downloaded game froze on me.

You guys realize that the hard drives are discs too, right?

The error really means that it can't read the data. If you've downloaded it several times and it still has the problem then your HDD is probably going bad. If you're using a flash drive then it's probably going bad.

It can also be an error that gets incorrectly called up by something in the games programming. The xbla game Strania: 'The Stella Machina,' would occasionally give a DRE and crash when it was first released and it was later fixed through a patch.

I'd check with other players who got Borderland through GoD before making assumptions about hardware failure ect.
