Look for any hairline cracks in the cd, make sure there is not dust or bad dirt spots on the top or bottom of the cd, if there is clean it off with a damp soft tissue.

Then put the disc back in and see if it reads, if it still doesn't read that game but it reads all other games then the cd got damaged when the xbox fell, it could be even tiny holes somewhere in the cd as well.

If all else fails, then the rainbow 6 disc is bad and would need to be replaced.

Wont read games only reads dvds


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

My xbox 360 fell and now it won't read a certain game.


obviously when it "fell" its broken something inside, if its still under its 1st year in warrenty, i would send it to microsoft and say that it just stopped working, but it could be a many thing causing the problem, if you dont wanna wait for microsoft, find a local man in your area who specialises in fixing xbox's.

What do i do if my xbox wont read one certain disc (the disc has no scratches and is very very cleam)


It is possible to have scratches that you can't see to well, and you may have missed. You may have tilted you Xbox to where something inside of the Xbox scratches the game, or it may be laser burnt, meaning the laser that reads the game was in one place for a while (i.e. you paused the game and went to go eat, take a shower, whatever, and the laser was continuously reading the one part of the disc, burning it.) which is normally unrepairable.

Can't download the game from drive E as the disc has been inserted. it prompts insert cd in drive E


YOU HAVE HARD WARE ISUES. OR DEFECTIVE DISC. CHECK ALL THESE BEFORE CONTINUING. HARDWARE UPDATES. ONCE YOU LOADED THAT DISC THE PROCESSOR MAKES A NOTE (IT CAN'T READ THE DATA) THE UPDATE MAY BE FOUND IN A DAY OR A WEEK, KEEP LOOKING FOR UPDATES EVERY DAY. CHECK THE READ SIDE OF THE DISC FOR WAVY RAINBOWS. IF THIS IS THE CASE USE THE DISC REPLACMENT PROGRAM PROVIDED FOR FREE AT XBOX.COM IN THE SUPPORT SECTION. HAPPY GAMING AND HOPE TO SEE YOU IN GEARS OF WAR TWO..

does it do that when you try to use the disk drive for other cd's. if so your disk drive is going. clean the cd even small about of dirt on cd will prevent it from working. wipe cd with clean dry cloth, get off any finger prints.
