Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console
I want to play a game so bad but my xbox console keep saying unrecoginzed disc can you please help me???
The disc may be dirty, or scratched. Try cleaning the disk and if it still doesn't work, just blow into the cd placer, because there may be dust in it.

I blew ours out with an air compressor (I'm sure a can of air would work fine) and couldn't believe the amount of dust that blew out. Also make sure the drive drawer is open when you unplug it so you can blow air inside the cd-rom too.
Also bought a cd/dvd cleaner at officemax.
All works fine now!
Good luck all!!

Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating. They did not extend the warranty to any other issues. DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.
You can try a factory reset of the console...
Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.
Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.
Press the following key combination
Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X
This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.
If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty. If not they will repair it for usually 99.00
