There are a couple of steps you can take when your 360 isn't reading your DVD-Rom.
First off, try another game, if it reads it then your 360 is working properly. Your game on the other hand may have scratched which need to be cleaned. If it's cracked, there's nothing you can do.
If it's not reading any other game disk, then you should try airing out the dust in your 360. If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the lends. Here's some information from eHow in regards to cleaning the lens. I like recommending eHow because it provides simple, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for situations which may seem difficult:
Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.
ive found its just a dirty lens the best way if you can is open the console and dvd drive and clean the lens by hand its simpler than it sounds if that dont work it needs a new lens and now you have opened the console and drive its easy to replace. hope this helps dont be intimidated by opening the console its not hard just make sure you have a torq 10 screwdriver
A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read. Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere. I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.
try cleaning the lens with a Q-tip and a little bit of rubbing alcohol (not dripping). lightly touch the Q-tip to the lens and TWIRL it. use the other end of the Q-tip to dry it. or get a laser lens cleaner, specifically designed for video game systems.
for a fat PS2 go here and go to the very end.
hope this helps :D
So your console is not reading your disc. There could be a couple of things that can cause this problem.
1.) The disc that you're using is dirty or damaged, so it can't be read by your console. Try a different CD and see if it works, if the other disc's work then you may have to clean the problematic disc or buy a replacement disc all together.
2.) The lens that reads the disc is either dirty or damaged, if the issue happens with all the CDs then you may have to clean the lens or have it work on by technician eventually replacement of the lens of the console will happen.
3.) The game is region protected. One good example of this is the PS2, games that are made for ASIAN PS2 won't work on a US PS2 and vice versa. So you have to check this also.
Contact the manufacturer of the console for further help on this, if these suggestions don't work.
this is a pretty easy fix.
You probally have the PS2 in a dusty area.
This will cause the dust to fall on the lens, thus, not being able to read it.
Try cleaning the lens, or buying a cleaning disk.
