Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

This is a common problem first off if its still under warranty send it back to microsoft. if not then do it yourself. the problem is the motor that spins the disk.you can open the console and spin it by hand to get it at the right speed and the the motor will take over then or you can go onto ebay get yourself a new drive and the tool kit for opening the console there are videos on youtube that will walk you trough this

My xbox 360 won't read any disks at all, not games, not movies, not CD's; it just says reading then open tray


Best bet would be to clean the disc reader by either using a Ku-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol or by using a actual cleaning disk for a computer

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.
