There are two possibilities, one bad, one easy to fix. 1: Your disk drive is broken, and the laser can no longer read the information on the disks, or it can no longer send the information. This would mean replacing the disk drive entirely. 2: The disk drive laser is dirty, and needs cleaned. If this is the problem, it is easier and much cheaper to fix, but do not try to do this yourself, unless you're properly trained with these devices, as there are a couple parts in the disk drive that will no longer work if taken apart wrong.
If you're lucky, just try cleaning all of your disks, which you might have mucked up with use and time.
If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys.
Hope this helps.
One. Make sure the bar code on the band on the inner ring is perfectley clean and dusted. Two blow into the disc drive to make sure there is no dust on the laser. Three, get a professional to look at it such as a person at Game or at Gamestation. Four, try replacing the copy (NOT RECOMMENDED YOU COULD WASTE MONEY)
Check the disc for any scratches. Clean the disc with some disc repair solution. If you just purchased the game try and take it back to where you bought it for an exchange. If there is no scratches or anything that could stop the disc from reading right it could be your Xbox. Xbox has been known to have many issues with heat maybe your Xbox is getting to hot. In which case the problem is your Xbox and you will have to call Microsoft about getting a new Xbox. My Xbox started to go bad in the exact same way. I would play multiplayer for awhile and it would freeze after playing for a little while. I would then turn the xbox off for a few min then turn it back on and it would work again for awhile untill a few days later when i got the red ring of death which means a hardware fail.
I had this problem recently. What happened was you closed the game without logging out of Playonline. The long shut down I call it. This corrupts the FFXI data on your HDD. And since FFXI does not appear in the memory you have to format your HDD and redownload. I can guarantee if you put the disc in your xbox with no HDD that it will read or even place it in an xbox with a HDD that has never had FFXI.
Halo 3 is buggy disk , I have 2 brand new copys of halo 3 for testing repaired drives
and found that of all the 360 I repair, benq drives will read 99% of the time the hitachi
seem too slow on the seek time to get a
lock/read resulting in a dirty disk error.
Halo 3 does not play on all 360
its just a picky disk .There seem to
be two xboxs thoes that will load halo 3
and thoes that will not.
