Sounds like a defective disc, which are produced sometimes, you might be able to take it back and get a different disc but your probably going to have to shell out another 60$ if you want to keep playing past this.

If you would like to try and fix your disc yourself there are a few ways,
http://www.instructables.com search scratched disc and there are plenty of ways to fix.

please post what you decide to do.

My son was playing his brand new game that we just opened modern warfare 2. while playing the game a message popped up disk is unreadable. we cleaned it with a cloth and now everytime we put the disk in...


Thoroughly check the disc for scratches (especially around the center of the disc, those usually are the most important). If you don't see this message in his other games, it may be the disc. Perhaps try returning the disc and buy a new copy. If he gets the same message, contact Microsoft for further support.

your CD is damaged somewhere for sure. the best solution is to copy the disc using computer burner and play the burned (copyed) CD.

I recetly got my x box 360 flashed with 1.61 iextreme and now it plays original x box 360 games fine but the backed up discs it comes with unreadable disc error and noisy grind and after number of attempts...


Hi

If you have flashed your xbox 360 with 1.61 firmware, have you got the Wave 4 patch disc, lot of currently released games need this disc to be run first before you run the copied games,you can check on google for the updated list of Wave 4 copy protection enabled games.

If you face problem with all copied game discs, even for older ones like Gears of War 2, Halo 3 etc then you should get the drive checked with the person from whom you have got your Xbox 360 modded

A single unreadable xbox disc, all the others work


the only thing i can think of is taking the disc back and exchanging it for another gears of war 2 disc and try that if that one does the same thing then it appears the xbox doesn't like it thats all i can suggest :)

Disc Unreadable


Your laser lens is going out and needs replacement. Either replace the whole drive (but switch out your old circuit board into the new drive) or buy a new laser and install it in (model number is etched into the bottom of the laser).

You have to switch your old board out of the old drive into the new due to Microsoft having "Keys" locked into each drive so you cant fix your system easily. So remember to keep the boards seperate and switch the old board into the new drive and install the new drice... should fix it nicely.

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
