This is the laser unit that is faulty, it either needs replacing or you could try cleaning it with a cotton earbud to see if that helps. if its still doing the same after cleaning you could also try adjusting the laser power, sometimes after its been played for years the laser loses power and you will have faults such as this. adjusting the 'pots' on the laser itself to around 282 will help greatly.
if you need a guide just email me or let me know via my website at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk and i will be more than glad to help you.

clean the drive,
many people put the xbox on the floor, the cooling fan sucks all kins of **expletive** into the open drive. a small piece of fishtank hose to the blow nozzle of a vaccuum cleaner, to blow loose the debri, and then **** it out. try not to disassemble the xbox, MS will void the extended red ring of death warranty for any opened xbox

"Unplayable Disc"


First of all clean the disc, use warm water and a soft rag. after cleaning the disk, very carefully take apart your XBOX and use the rag to wipe off the eye touch nothing else. Place the XBOX together the same way that you took it apart. Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 unplayable disks


What you have to do, is clean the "eye" the thing under the disk tray that reads the game, you probabley got that dirty or damaged somehow. Try spraying compressed air into the open disk tray to get any quick dust off. if that does not work then try finding other ways to clean it or call 1-800-4my-xbox and have microsoft check out the system to see whats wrong with it

Xbox doesnt read any disks


Similar problem here. Worked fine last night. This morning...every disc put in gets you a "unplayable" response. Does play DVDs though. Weird. Called xbox and they are sending us a box for repair. This is the second time sending it in. We had the ring of death crap before and had to send it in. It was in repair when Halo 3 came out. My son was having fits not being able to play it.

xbox is not on the top of my list as being a good, reliable gaming system.

Sounds like you have a faulty DVD drive. If you are still in warranty Microsoft should either repair/replace the console, call them and explain the situation. Otherwise, if your warranty is out, you could replace the DVD yourself, there are many places to pick up the drives, ebay is a good place to start also xbox-scene.com would be able to help.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
