How do I fix my xbox game the xbox keeps saying unreadable disc clean with a soft cloth and restart the console.

If you get the error with just one game, but not others, unfortunately it is likely damage to the disc. If it is under warranty, or if you bought it at a return-friendly place, maybe you can get a replacement.

If your system is still under warranty, or sometimes even if not (because this was such a big problem for Xbox), Microsoft may repair it. Try calling them and patiently discussing it. If it is not under warranty, and you are good with repair work, try this:

Xbox 360 says "Please insert this CD into an Xbox 360"

Try to clean out your xbox 360. Or, try to clean the disc with a soft rag and windex. Or, your disc is scratched

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray

The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.
