assuming its a real version, could be that your drive is about to crap out so it can't read the disc enough to verify.

I cannot believe anyone has said this. It is due to the fact they have a modded xbox. When you just buy an xbox used, there's always a high chance someone's modded them.

My xbox says this every now and then when I play MW3 and I can guarantee my xbox is not modded.

People mostly have this issue with MW3. Microsoft put out a silent, forced update to secretly improve piracy protection but fudged the verification checks. Why it only happens to some 360's and not all is beyond me, but you should call them because exchanging the discs will only yield the same results
