    you shouldnt really have your console standing up,it puts more pressure on the laser and can Flubber your discs up ;)

    My guess would be that since GOW3 was one of the first games released in XGD3 format,,M$ was probably testing the waters with different disc manufacture processes,,and even a little extra weight of uneven material layers is enough to throw your drive into a frenzy when the disc spins up to speed and is slightly out of balance on its axis (similar to a tire with a broken band in it, or a fan the has a broken blade,etc) I would bet if you look at your gears disc compared to others you'll find that it is possibly a touch thicker,,and may be rough looking around the outside edges, again anything to throw off the balance

    This is why it is best to install games you play heavily,,also saves tons of wear on your drive,,,

    OP I assume this is resolved,,, is it OK for me to close the topic?
