Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
my xbox 360 when i put in a xbox 360 game it tends to say ''please put this disc into an xbox 360 console'' and 2 times out of ten if that the game reads and comes on then it will be playing away and say ''the disc is unreadable please wipe the game with a soft cloth and restart the console'' and i find this odd as the game is brand new as from yesterday and doesnt have a single scratch on it
also the console resets the time and date everytime i turn it on
please email me with a suggestion on firstname.lastname@example.org
many thanks steve
This is a known issue with the 360, most likely the cause is that the spindle that holds the disc is loose or completely broken off. As the way the cap for the spindle was made, microsoft used a magnet to hold it in place instead of glue or soldering as most drives would have. This is just another instance of inferior workmanship on their part to save money.
