Probably a heat issue. Make sure the Xbox and the power supply have plenty of fresh cool air at all times. If you have a fan, try blowing it at the xbox and the power supply.
The thing is, this shouldn't be happening. If that doesn't fix it, call xbox support. You might be looking at a third xbox - but if it's defective, they should replace it under warranty.

you can get the cleaning disc at any electronic store or even at some other stores like drug stores and even at the dollar store , but if the laser lens is probably to dirty to even see that disc if your player will not even read a music disc, have you tried a music disc? can it read it ? if so the cleaning disc will work.
if not then taking the player apart and manually cleaning the lens will be required
Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.
