Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc unreadable . 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.

It is a hard problem to diagnose without having the dvd drive opened up. But, firstly try a good quality dvd lens cleaner, make sure there are no scratches on your discs, if they are scratched you can buy a dvd/cd buffer which smooths the surface, easily available on ebay etc. If you still have the same problem, it is likely to be as follows........   1: it needs a new laser  2: the worm motor or  3:the motor that spins the disc (Unlikely).

The x`box was saying it can't read the disc. contact u


If you have the new kinect xbox 360 dashboard and you cannot get your xbox 360 console to read your game discs or DVDs, you are not alone. An update that was recently applied through Xbox Live makes your discs unreadable.
Remove the update by navigating to:
System Settings->Memory->STOP HERE!
You should see your Hard Drive highlighted, if not move to it and then enter this on your controller:
X,LB,RB,X,LB,RB,X
Delete System Update will appear, make sure there is no media in your disc drive and select YES. You system will restart and appear to hang DO NOT TURN IT OFF OR MESS WITH IT!
After a couple minutes your system will start and you should be able to play discs again.

It says the disc is unreadable and ive cleaned


Ok this worked on my mw2.
Take some toothpaste, a soft cloth.
wet the dist then dab a small amount on the game disk. (NOTE!!) STREAK OUTWARS TO THE EDGE NOT IN CIRCLE IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS IT WILL MAKE IT WORSE!.
after youve done this wash and repeat 10-15 times (note) it will take about an half an hr if you do it properly.
