new xbox game having trouble running because it's from the states?

Just wondering here, I know the region for the states, and canada is NTSC-U, but I had bought a game in Washington some time back, brand new. Any time I try to play it, something like half the time it either doesn't launch telling me the disc is unreadable, or does the same thing at a random loading screen.

The disc is fine, not a scratch on it, and my brother's copy of the same game works fine, and his copy was used. I find myself often using his copy on the downstairs T.V.

I already returned one game to the store in Washington in exchange for this one because that game didn't launch at all.

Just wondering, I know they're all NTSC-U format, but could this hold anything on why it's finnicky?

I have no idea what the region map is like for games, but if they are from different regions, it might not work. It might also be a problem with your disk tray as well. My Xbox is almost five years old and 70% of the time I either get an open tray or unrecognized disk error when trying to load a game. What is it like when you try to put other games in there? Do they all load just fine on the first try?

All other games I tried work fine... Additionally, I'm only a 5 minute drive above the border anyways.

Looking it up, it seems like we both share the same region for video games, so I'm willing to bet that it is an error with the disc, somehow. If other games work just fine, then it's obviously not an error with the disc tray. If you can get a replacement, hopefully it will solve the problem. Although I'm not strongly advocating you waste money, but if you are interested, next time you are in the US, buy another game and see if it has the same problems.

Too late to return it now, and I'd feel silly going back yet again.
