Hi Bvogel987,

You probably need a new UMD drive. I have seen this many times. Try the following to restore the drive.

  1. Turn the PSP-1000 on,
  2. Open the UMD door
  3. Press down on the black peg poking up at 8 O-Clock in reference to the disc spindle.
  4. You should see the disc spin, and Laser light up. If either does not, then you need a new drive.
  5. If they do spin and light up, Take a toothpick, and wrap paper towel aorund the tip of the tooth pick,
  6. Dampen the toothpick swab with a Windex type cleaner.
  7. Swab the laser lens, and move the lens with you finger or toothpick to the right a couple of clicks. Place a new paper on the toothpick and dry the lens.
  8. Test. If this did not work, you still need a new Drive.
I run www.PlayStationClinic.com and we replace PSP-1000 UMD drive for $47.00 including return shipping and handling.

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2


Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

Xbox 360: disk drive


try reseting the system in the system settings this, is sometimes caused by an update not downloading and or installing correctly. once you reset to default, try updating  the system on xbox live. if this continues you might have a drive issue. good luck....

Disc doesnt turn at all


Dsic not turning is related to the LAser not reading the disc. If it does not read the disc, it will not spin. Clean the lens of the laser, this may fix it.
