    This is infuriating because once ever 200 times you start it up the game will load, then the next time you turn it on to play, that message comes up. Everytime it gets fewer and further between times working. GRRR

I had the same problem,If it is under warranty send it in ,,, if not then you are going to open it up,, plenty of instruction on how to do this online (google it). see what type of dvd drive you have and then go on ebay and purchase an identical replacment drive. once you recieve it open up YOUR ORIGINAL DVD DRIVE and unplug the green motherboard looking thing on top(Big ONE) there should be four little tabs on this. put it to the side . now open up the new dvd drive and repeat but make sure you dont get these cards switched up.put the old key in the new dvd drive , plug in all 4 tabs,bottom one first. put back together and install back into xbox360. put xbox 360 back together put in disk and enjoy

You're problem is, is that the laser on you're xbox is bad. I have the same problems here and there. I had talked to someone at gamestop about it and he told me that. Playing DVDs or leaving games on and leaving them sit there for hours or whatever, not doing anything with them is wears out that laser that reads the disks. Either replace the laser, or dvd drive. Also send it into microsoft. (which I wouldnt do unless I had to.) And if you tried sticking the game in and out repeatedly (but waiting for it to finish reading the disc).

You can try to move it to a wider place, if its in a close space place, try moving it where it has plenty of room. Do not have it in a cabinet or corner of of room.

I know gamestop.com and places that sells Xbox Accessories offer "360 Fans" that will blow cool air into the console. You may want to try one of those.

Xbox 360: disk drive


Your system is fine, the disk is a different story. By moving your Xbox 360 the drive does some funky things. The disk probably has some deep grooves around the egde. In future, dont move the 360 or backup your xbox 360 games with http://www.everything4360.com Support Rich
