My Xbox 360 system appears to read DVD's fine but whenever I try to play a game it makes a weird buzzing noise then brings me to the dashboard and says "Unreadable disc." I've tried this whith at least 12 games (some include: Halo 3, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, and Oblivion). The games are all in near perfect condition with no scratches or smears. It just started to do this a few days ago and was working fine last week. I sent my system into Microsoft a few months ago because of the "three red lights" problem and they have done nothing to help me with this problem.

Its probably because you have the game in the wrong way. That happened to mine and i realized it was in backwards. So check that out and reply back. Also don't move your Xbox 360 with a game or DVD in it, it will get the game/ DVD scratched up.
If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an
office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust
out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be
cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous
I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!
