Re: TOOTHPASTE DOSNT WORK!!! WUT WILL
A common problem that Xbox owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “ring of death marks”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any scratches or laser burn on discs.

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.
If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.
Xbox DVD-Drive's often scratch circles into your discs and some even got malfunctioning lasers that will burn rings into games. To prevent the circular scratched from happening avoid moving your console at any time while it is running however it often also occurs just in regular use especially for older consoles with Hitachi or Samsung drives. As far as I know Microsoft replaces discs that were clearly damaged by a console free of charge, at least here in Europe they do. Try calling Xbox Customer Support and ask for a replacement it is worth a try for sure even if they shouldnt replace it they will at least give you a 1-month subscription for Xbox LIVE in exchange.

There isn't really a way to clean it, but you could try either the toothpaste or brasso trick(google it). your best bet would be to buy a disk doctor or take it to gamestop and ask them to resurface it.
Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on. Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it. And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive. If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.
it might be the laser what needs the power adjusting, or just to make sure - look underneath the game discs, is there a circle/round mark on those games? if so then they will need skimming at your local gamestation.
ive also seen this problem when the logic board is faulty. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox
360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7
days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.
[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.
[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.
The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up.
This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken
connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control
over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent
further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for
repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if
you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will
know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your
warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.
I Just got a XBOX 360 Call of Duty 3 disc back in shape using Toothpaste. Now the disc had a buildup around the outer edge from where it jumped off the spindle at high speed, This left a scratch all the way around the outer perimeter. I scrubbed and scrubbed for like 10 minutes on this scratch with Crest Toothpaste. The scratch is gone, but it left a foggy look where I did the toothpaste. Call of duty 3 is not working perfectly where is would not read at all before the toothpaste. This is why I say use toothpaste. It may not work on all, but it does work on some.
