    Gears of War 3.
    Burned truncated (ImgBurn).
    Burn verified (ImgBurn).
    Loads on 360 no problem.
    Plays from disc with no problem.
    Installs to HDD with no problem.
    Won't play from HDD, disc still spins.
    Same results with both Verbatim and Memorex.

    Is this normal for truncated (97%) games (since they are missing data)?

    Tonight I think I will install it from the retail disc, and see if it will run from the HDD using the truncated disc.

    My Gears 3 retail game spins initially despite being installed. It actually makes my system sound like a jet as well. The spinning and the roaring of the jet engine stops whenever I get into a multiplayer game and it doesn't start back up. It's pretty weird. I burned a copy using the new Lite-On burner and I'm pretty sure it still spins and stops spinning at the same spot, only there is no jet engine roar with the burned copy.

    Even original XGD3 games do this. Unlike XGD2 games, where the disc stops spinning after a few seconds, the disc will spin for a few minutes, but it stops eventually and then doesn't start up again unless you go back to the dashboard and restart the game.

    So you're saying that it stops spinning immediately once the game starts?

    My originals still spin for a few minutes on an unmodded box, so it's definitely normal. I've seen plenty of other people talking about it on sites like NeoGAF, so it's not just me. ;)
