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.

My video game is noy working on the 360 the game is gears of war2


The most likely cause of this is that you have a dirty or scratched disk-

  1. Try cleaning your disks using mild soapy water and a microfiber cloth.
  2. If you notice lots of surface scratching then use a DIY scratch removal kit, or visit your local game store which will probably offer a similar service.
  3. If your other games aren't working properly then you may have a faulty Xbox 360 console. Try the disk in a different console to see if it works.

Cant read disk


Check to see if there are any scratches on the disc. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating “Disc Read Error” or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. Try a different disc and if this works then the problem is more than likely with that disc and it needs repairing.
Most Game Discs, DVD’s and CD’s can be fixed quite easily. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some of these discs but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any discs with more than very light marks or scratches. Discs can normally be repaired back to a virtually new condition.


For further help on disc repairs, visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.

If you tried some home remedies and they have not worked, try sending the disc off for repair. Contact the site above for advice on repair and shipping.

Hope this Helps!!!

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

Wii is scratching discs and unable to load


If there are kids around check if something is inside it. If there is and it is rubbing on the disk it will slow the disk so the console won't read it. It does kind of look like a coin slot.

Game Cube will not read disks. Please help!


you can clean the disks using tap water and then drying with soft cloth have you tried a lense cleaner to clean the laser on the cube get a good brand one not a cheap one also you can buy a disk cleaner that gently takes the scratches out of cds and gets them as new but you will have to shop around to get one but these work on anything cd dvd games the lot so deff worth having one as lots of people throw out dvds cd and games due to the scratches stopping them working but remember the data on a disk isnt on the plastic it is on the layey the other side of plastic the plastic is their to protect the data getting damaged so removing the scratches does not damage the disk if you have scratches this will affect the disk because the laser cant read through the scratch so polishing these scratches out will make the disk as new not many people know you can do this so consider yourself having privalaged info hope this is some help to you but you might have to ask arround for a disk repair so good luck you could even charge people to repair their disks and games this works for anything on a cd style disk.........................................................
