Unreadable discs for xbox360 after playing them for approx 30 min
I play various games (brand new and old ones) and after approx 30 mins I ge the message that the disc is unreadable and it hasn't always saved my games. We bought a dvd cleaner, but this doesn't seem to have helped. Can you help?

This happens when the laser is set too low power, ideally the laser should be set to around 280ohms where yours may be at 400 or thereabouts., replacement lasers will fix this problem or if its possible maybe a re-alignment would also make it work again. Replacing the part is very easy and you can find the lasers on ebay for around £15. If you get stuck and need help we offer a full repair service www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Hello Delete any saved game files from your x box hard drive.Unplug x box for 5 min. Plug back in and power up. Try game again. Chances are files have become corrupt.Also delete any files from GOW 1 and 2.
find out which dvd drive you have, hitachi, samsung, phillips, etc...then buy a 20 dollar replacement same brand, switch the little green board from yours to the new one, new drive no errors...hope it helps...
If its not doing anythng you may have a hard disk problem? I cant guarante this as you have not given enough information. Do you get an error message? or any message at all other than cant read disk? you are obviously using the internet...take a look at the microsoft.com website....put into the search 'XBOX360' see what is comes up with..you may find your answer there.
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.
