My xbox 360 can't read my FFXI CD. It's clean enough to eat off of and worked earlier, and it hadn't been touched since.

Does it read other discs ok? or does it have problems with other games too. if it does then your laser will need a re-alignment. Some lasers i have seen at around 400ohms when they should be at 290-300. a quick strip down, clean and re-alignment may fix this problem.
its also possoble you have a faulty disc, i have heard reports of others experiencing problems with this game too

Hello i have problem, i install my ffxi to HDD xbox360


Hi! Basically, not all Xbox 360 games are support by this "install" feature. This install feature has started around mid 2009 and thus games developed during that time and so on were theonly games capable of being installed into the Xbox 360 Console's harddrive.

Put in disk in 360. Play Playonline viewer, but screen goes black, and says cannot read disk, need to clean or restart. I did this several times and same result.


I had this problem recently. What happened was you closed the game without logging out of Playonline. The long shut down I call it. This corrupts the FFXI data on your HDD. And since FFXI does not appear in the memory you have to format your HDD and redownload. I can guarantee if you put the disc in your xbox with no HDD that it will read or even place it in an xbox with a HDD that has never had FFXI.

Playing ffxi when it froze,now won't read discs


To fix this, use one of these few tips:

*1.clean the disc drive
*2. replace the disc drive

3. Put in a game and tap with a moderate force on top of the drive
4. Clear system cache. To do this, go to system settings and click memory. Press "Y" and go to clear cache, or click: "X" "X" "LB" "RB" "X" "X" as a button sequence.
5. Clean the laser and the rails. If the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned DONT use regular rubbing alcohol. Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses. Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along sometimes need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone. This method clears read problems most of the time not resolved by these other techniques.

6. WARNING: Don't try this one if you don't want to take even the slight risk of damaging the console even further! Turn off the console with a cd in it. Then open the disc tray, and quickly take out the cd, slam the tray shut (Not too hard now), and turn off the XBOX 360.

Clean the disc with a soft cloth FFXI xbox360


this is caused by the n November update in the MS xbox360 dashboard. This is a problem with the xbox communicating with the hard drive. This usually occurs in xboxs that are not using the HD shipped with the console. According to square the only solution to this common problem is that you reformat your hd and intsall the game again. yes, you have have to wait for that dl to finish. square also states that there is a possiblity that this may re-occur after the second install, though rare.

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.
