There are two possibilities, one bad, one easy to fix.
1: Your disk drive is broken, and the laser can no longer read the information on the disks, or it can no longer send the information. This would mean replacing the disk drive entirely.
2: The disk drive laser is dirty, and needs cleaned. If this is the problem, it is easier and much cheaper to fix, but do not try to do this yourself, unless you're properly trained with these devices, as there are a couple parts in the disk drive that will no longer work if taken apart wrong.

If you're lucky, just try cleaning all of your disks, which you might have mucked up with use and time.

If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: xbox 360 arcade pal game read error

You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

One. Make sure the bar code on the band on the inner ring is perfectley clean and dusted. Two blow into the disc drive to make sure there is no dust on the laser. Three, get a professional to look at it such as a person at Game or at Gamestation. Four, try replacing the copy (NOT RECOMMENDED YOU COULD WASTE MONEY)

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Bought an Original XBox used. Worked great for about 2 days--played KOTOR 1. On the 3rd day, it froze and read that there was a problem reading the disc. Annoyed that the XBox: -originally played...


Unfortunately this is high likely a disc player issue and it will be cheaper for you to purchase a new (old) system then it would be for you to go through the hassle of repair.

As you have already specified you are aware of the pot tweaking and that is the route that might lead you to a solution if you are to try and do it yourself. Another option though also costing money is to purchase just the disc player from ebay and change it out completely. Again, I find Xbox 360 cheap enough at pawn shops or yard sales that you could easliy find a cheap one.

I have given all my original xbox systems to family members already otherwise I would have gaven you one of mind.

Good luck.
