Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating “Disc Read Error” or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. 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.

For further help on XBOX & XBOX 360 disc repairs, visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on game 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.

Hope this Helps!!!

SOURCE: xbox 360 unreadable disc

If you have a close-by friend check the game on his xbox to see if you get the same error. If you do not, then it is most likely your xbox. You may need to return it to Microsoft.

Try to insert the disc, power off the xbox, unplug it completely. Wait 30 seconds then plug everything in and power it back on and see if you get the same error message.

If none of these suggestions are an option, you may want to purchase a $10-$25 CD that has bristles that cleans the lens that reads the CD's inside the unit. (I know Maxell makes them) Then try the game again.

My xbox keeps saying the disc is unreadable half way through games


the disc is either scratched too much
or
the xbox dvd lense is dirty

if other discs work then it is that specific disk

try cleaning the disc with a micro fibre cloth
start on the inside and rub outwards towards the edge of the disc

you can also buy a lense cleaning kit, you put a solution on a disc and put it in the drive
it should help to clean the laser

goodluck

My son was playing his brand new game that we just opened modern warfare 2. while playing the game a message popped up disk is unreadable. we cleaned it with a cloth and now everytime we put the disk in...


Thoroughly check the disc for scratches (especially around the center of the disc, those usually are the most important). If you don't see this message in his other games, it may be the disc. Perhaps try returning the disc and buy a new copy. If he gets the same message, contact Microsoft for further support.

The game i have is scratched it only work for one nazi map and when i try to play career it ses disc unreadable what do i do


You will need to either repair the disc using a repair kit, find a game shop that repairs disc, or purchase a new copy of the game. You are getting a message saying that the disc is unreadable because the scratches prevent the laser from reading the data.

Disk unreadable but clean disk not scratached


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOmNtrStDgM
Turned on your Xbox 360 console one day and and when you try to play your game you got the message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc".....??
First determine whether it's a fault with the disc or not, by having a look on the disc itself & make sure it's not scratched and there are no flaws even on it, and try other game discs on your Xbox 360 console .
If your disc is scratched or have flaws try putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console just to make sure it's the disc not the actual console causing the error, If other disc are working fine, refer to the scratched discs page on our website to know what are the steps you have to follow to get it sorted out.
If the disc is not scratched and doesn't have any flaws on it, cleaning the disc and trying it once more may solve the issue, if that doesn't work try to check it by putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console, if they all work that would be definitely a fault with the disc itself and in a case like this you have the right to exchange it from the retailer you bought it from as it's not scratched.
In all cases if other game discs are giving you the same error message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc" you need then to contact Xbox 360 customer support to send your console to get repaired or exchanged.

Everytime i put nhl10 in to play it says the disk is unreadable and i just got it today


Check the back of the disc for any kind of circular scratches, because moving the xbox while a disc is in it is commonly known to scratch up discs, even if they are new. Try putting in the disc, then go to Game Library, and click on the game (NHL 10), then hit Install to Hard Drive, this may fix the problem, if this doesn't work, go to your local game store, and see if they can buff out the scratches.

Dise unreadable


Most likely you will have to buy a new or used game because the xbox reads everything off the disc and if its scratch you will not be able to play the certain places that doesnt work or not play at all

New XBox 360 putting scratch in games


the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.

Call of duty 4


I have heard that if your console is laying flat that it will scratch your discs. hasn't happened to me but maybe you should try standing it up to avoid further discs from being scratched. To fix your call of duty 4 disc you should buy whats called a game doctor if you haven't heard of it you put your disc in it and it re-buffers your dis like it was new. if that fails the only thing i can think of would be to buy a whole new game :/
