Games unreadable for xbox 360

Over the last month my games have slowly stopped working. I should point out that the main games that don't play are the "new" games. It started with Halo 3 then Halo 2 (not a new game but it's in that order), followed by Rock Band 2, Rock Band 1, PGR 4.

The only game I can partly play is COD 4 which after 15 to 20 minutes gives an unreadable error.

My xbox already has an expired warranty so I really don't want to shell out 90+ dollars to get it repaired.

I've tried the troubleshooting tips on microsoft's website. I'm hoping that someone has a solution for this.

Thanks in advanced for all the tips.

Could you tell me in steps how to conect to xbox live


Step 1 Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
  • Step 2 Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
  • Step 3 Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
  • Step 4 Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.

    Xbox 360 only reads some games and says others are unreadable.


    If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

    Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

    Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

    You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

    Ok, I have recently been having this problem with my Xbox 360. About a month ago, I kept getting Disc is Unreadable error, but it was only for 5 games that I mainly play. I sent this Xbox in and I was sent...


    Possibly you tilted or moved the Xbox when a game was running, this will scratch the game beyond repair, or maybe you played the games so long that they were laserburnt, meaning they were burnt from the laser inside of the Xbox that reads it, making they sometimes unplayable, you could try taking the games back to the store and returning them for a new one.

    Disc unreadable even with new discs, tried putting console flat instead of upright still doesn't work.A game can be playing then stops and says disc unreadable!


    Unreadable disk error happens because the sensors on the DVD drive are overheating, it is not normally because the drive is faulty.

    You need to stop this heat build up to be able to play again. You can do this yourself or send it in

    Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted


    Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.

    Unreadable disk


    Have you tried ejecting the disc but not quitting out the game, wiping the disc and then putting it back in, it should say something like please insert disc, it may work, it does on the ps3
