All functions of xbox working , except when game disk or DVD is loaded. Sometimes will play DVD, but most times says "cannot read disk check to see Etc, Etc." Sometimes will load game but freezes or reads "cannot read disk Etc,Etc," After a short while.
Well it has hit me even with games cd's so i guess its in the cd drive try 2 look at your m8s and just try to fix it ur self or go 2 a game place and ask whats wrong but let them check it.
if that fails get a ps3 or 360 (if u got enough cash)

hi, how well does your daughter look after her games? if her disk's have scratches on them the xbox will have trouble reading it and will often do this. another cause is that the xbox is old the laser will be worn out and will take ages to load a game.
the 2 solutions are: 1. check the disk, if it is highly scratched go get it cleaned, most gaming stores will do it for a small fee 2. take apart the xbox (only if out of warranty and step-by-step instructions can be found on youtube) and clean it gently with a duster
First Turn your X-box on
Second Take out your game or CD
Third Open tray
Fourth Close tray
Fifth Repeat Third and Fourth a couple times and let it load then open
Sixth Stop when you hear the xbox make a spinning noise like when it is reading a game
Seventh Open tray
Eighth Pit a game in
Ninth Close tray
Tenth Play you game!
Bad Cdrom/dvd The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser. http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/xbox_dvd_repair.htm
