This sounds like your laser is faulty m8, you could try adjusting the power on the laser to see if that fixes the problem but more than likely you will have to install a new laser pickup unit.
strip the machine down, take out the dvd drive and strip that down (usually 4-6 posi screws) remove the cables from the laser then turn upside down and remove the logic board. if you look at the laser there is 2 pots which can be adjusted. if the laser is upside down then you need to adjust the left hand pot to around 282.

put the machine back together and test - if it works then youve fixed it, if not then you will have to replace the laser unit. strip everything down again and this time take out the laser pickup unit itself. remembering how everything went together. look under the laser unit and there should be a part number. look on ebay and you should be able to get a new laser for around £15 inc p&p. this will save you a lot of money and may be the only way to fix.

On my xbox, the game cod mw3 wont work. it will work for like 1 min. and say disc unreadable.


Hi the dude,

Is this an issue with any other games you have? If it is then it is likely you will need to clean your laser disc.

However, I am assuming that this is just an issue with a specific game. The disc that you have is likely scratched or faulty to some degree. Replacing this disk is likely the only way you will ever play this game 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.

Hwhat does it mean when it wont read one game but will read another


it means the one that wont read is scratched, dirty or defective, my advice is to clean it if its dirty, get a cd repair kit if its scratched or take it back if its defective.

Xbox 360 unreadable disc


If you have a close-by friend check the game on his xbox to see if you get the same error. If you do not, then it is most likely your xbox. You may need to return it to Microsoft.

Try to insert the disc, power off the xbox, unplug it completely. Wait 30 seconds then plug everything in and power it back on and see if you get the same error message.

If none of these suggestions are an option, you may want to purchase a $10-$25 CD that has bristles that cleans the lens that reads the CD's inside the unit. (I know Maxell makes them) Then try the game again.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
