Unfortunately once a disk is scratched there isn't really anything you can do about it. Most of the things that promise to fix scratched disks are fake and scratch them worse. I would suggest buying a used copy of the broken games, and avoid moving your xbox with disks on them. Also, if you have a friend with the same game, borrow the disk, install it to your harddrive, and try to run it with your scratched disk. Sometimes if it is installed to the harddrive it will run even if the disk is scratched.
Check the underside of your disc, it sounds like you've either got a dirty disc, or have a few really big and deep scratches. Use a light cleaning solution like those used for glasses, spray it on the disc and then wipe with a toilet paper roll. After that, use a lens cloth ( which you use to wipe glasses and sunglasses) and wipe the disc from the inside out (Start from the middle, then stroke straight outward till the end of the disc, repeat for all sides). This will remove dirt and hopefully will let you play again. If you've got scratches though you can try buffing them out with disc cleaners, however if the scratches are deep I'm afraid you can't do much except get replacement discs.
So at first Halo3 stopped working then other games stopped working?
Sounds like your lens is dirty. You can buy a cheap lens cleaner (looks like a cd with brushes on it). What I do is open the tray and pull the power when it is halfway open. From there I take a compressed air can and use an extension to blow any dust off the lens.
You can also copy your games directly to your hard drive if you have ample space. This helps with scratched disks and such. When you do this, you will still need the game disk in the tray to play.
Yeah i had the same prblem too. So it's either the game disk's have scratches in the middle of the game disk or the xbox is messed up. I would take it in somewhere to get it fixed if something is wrong with your Xbox.
