Ok my xbox 360 has had this problem 4 a while. I just bought Madden 08 and i would playin the game until about the 4th quarter it said this disc is unreadable clean it. I cleaned it and tried it a couple more times and it kept doing that. It also did this when i was playin Madden 07 and Gears of War b4. Idk i think i got a bad 360. Ive check 4 dust around the opening tray and there is none. Idk can anyone help me out here?
-. Use a standard CD/DVD Cleaner, they look like a normal CD but with two miniature brushes on them. This will only clean the lens. Sometimes this is all you need to be up and running.
-Clean the lens and mirror manually
-Adjust the Potentiometer (pot) on the laser.
you do nto have to see dust lens might be dirty from reguler use of teh dvd and or cd of games

A lot of people are having the same problem with this game and other games like madden. I have seen one solution that may help you and that is to lay your console horizontally instead of vertically. This has help some people but not others. It seems to be a problem with the cdrom in the 360. Not the game itself. On newer models of the 360 this problem does not occur as microsoft have upgraded the drive.
If your 360 is still under warrenty I would send it back for repair or replacement, I know this is annoying but it may be your only solution.
Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.
