INSTALL?
Is it unreadable you PLAY it? Or when you install it...
Becuase it probably has a few sectors scratched that only affect like...1 level or somethign and you havent noticed, but when you INSTALL it, it has to have everything correct.

If i were you and it STILL WORKS NORMALLY, just playing it, don't install it.

Installing games on the 360 gives a very small performance boost. Not really too worth it, especially if you cant even get it to work.

My ps3 wont read disk even after i've replaced the lens


If it is a certain disk that your Playstation wont read then its more then likely your disk is corrupt or unreadable. Perhaps its time to buy a new disk?
If your problem is that most or ALL your disks are unreadable then im sure the problem is to do with the playstation itself. (Proberly the lens again.) Contact Sony on their freephone and explain the problem to them. The default warranty is 1 years free cover. If you've had your playstation under a year then Sony will happily replace your console for free. Usually takes 2-3 working days.
Hope this helps!

Disk unreadable message from ffxi


I had this problem.
If your disc is not damaged, then the most likely problem is the FFXI data has been corrupted.
This can happen if you improperly exit FFXI or the POL viewer, such as just turning off the console, or your console freezes.
Since the FFXI data is not displayed on the Memory section in the dashboard, and you cannot load the disc to reinstal from the POL viewer, you must reformat the HDD through the memory section of the dashboard.
Make sure to back up all other game data onto another storage device, as reformatting will delete everything.

Unable to read disc message


Could be a damaged disk (check closely), a bad disk (did it work before) or your lens could be going out (which makes it unable to read the disk). Have you tried putting another disk in to see if you get the same problem?

Unreadable disc


It might be a problem with the disc itself. Try conventional disc cleaners and repairs. If those don't work, replace the game. If it still doesn't work, then you might need to send the console back to get it repaired. If you're still under warranty.
