If your xbox says (unplayable disc) and no disc plays including dvd, mp3, etc. then you do have a fatal hardware flaw in the disc drive. This should be covered under the new 3 year extended warranty. This problem is rumored to be caused by two things,1 cheap disc drives, 2 live update which was trying to ban modded 360s for xbox live friendly fired on alot of innocent disc drives with bad firmware.....but this should be covered, give em a call

hey man this is a disc drive problem but its very simple to fix.only thing is you'll need to disassemble your console and take the case off your disc drive. it will void warranty.
its very easy to fix, not worth sending back to MS and get charged money. has worked on 3 out of the 3 xboxes ive seen with open tray errors. all had BenQ drive. good luck.">
If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys.
Hope this helps.
You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!
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.
Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry
It might be a problem with the disc itself. Try conventional disc cleaners and repairs. If those don't work, replace the game. If it still doesn't work, then you might need to send the console back to get it repaired. If you're still under warranty.
-. Use a standard CD/DVD Cleaner, they look like a normal CD but with two miniature brushes on them. This will only clean the lens. Sometimes this is all you need to be up and running.
-Clean the lens and mirror manually
-Adjust the Potentiometer (pot) on the laser.
you do nto have to see dust lens might be dirty from reguler use of teh dvd and or cd of games
