I was transferring the storage data for GTA 5, and my xbox froze. I had the message saying don't turn it off, but I didn't know what else I could do. Once I turned it back on, the data looked like it was transferred properly, so I didn't think anything of it.

Until I tried to play the game, anyways. Any other time you would see the police lights and whatnot. Now, its just a blank black screen, but it tells me who's online at the time.

How can I fix this?

If I understand correctly, you were transferring the ~9 GB of install data to your xbox? If so, fetch your GTA 5 install disc and reinstall the game. If you were transferring savegames, there's a chance they're now broken. If you still have a copy of those saves, transfer those. – Nolonar Oct 23 '13 at 15:08
Deleting the game install content and title updates (leaving save should be fine) and then beginning the installation again should resolve it. I can't imagine the disk has been damaged by you turning the console off, unless you did so by kicking it in the disc tray. – TZHX Oct 23 '13 at 15:08
so basically erase the whole game off mi hard drive...reinstall it and take it from there...but wat im sayin is the game is not cutting on period...would that cause a problem lik that... – jaybee Oct 23 '13 at 15:13
It's difficult to say what would cause the problem, but if it happened after you turned off the system while transferring data, that (incomplete/corrupted data) would seem to be the most obvious cause. – TZHX Oct 23 '13 at 15:15
