Re: Unplayable disk error
Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc
Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights
problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this
problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4
weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can
occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also
be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first
clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you
can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

Ok, this is optical lens assembly failure. the lens is burned out and unable to scan due to lens failure. simply replacing the dvd rom optical lens assembly will restore the reading ability of your unit.
I started to have the same problem with my box as well... If you know how to take your xbox drive out of the 360 then do so and open it up... if its the problem you'll immediatly notice that the black ring that spins the disk itself is stuck to the top of the casing... its magnetic so just pull it off and superglue up it back to its base and it should fix your problem
to be honest it sounds like you drive has gone, unfortunately there isn't alot you can do for this problem, is just happens from time to time especially with the older core console. send it back to microsoft, they will fix it or replace your console.
Go to Youtube and look up opening XBOX 360. There are lots of videos and tutorials explaining how to open up your XBOX. JUST REMEBER TO KEEP THE SILVER STICKER INTACT SO YOU CAN PUT IT BACK AND NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY
