try it on another xbox to see if its really the game or your xbox. you might have a crappy laser in your xbox so test it on another xbox, you dont need any program to play backup.

another option is to ftp the game into your xbox harddrive and play from there.

Yeah it sounds like it is a media issue. Eject the tray on your XBOX DVD Drive and the tray on his XBOX DVD Drive and do a comparison with the pic below.
