Sounds like a DVD drive failure, which is not uncommon in the first or even second generation xbox 360's

if it's out of warranty take apart the xbox and replace the drive. if it's not call Microsoft and get it repaired

# Turn console off and then on. # Clean the disc and examine it for flaws or scratches. # If this behavior occurs with one or two discs, search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for the specific game title(s). If you find a known problem, follow the information outlined in the article. # Delete the appropriate saved games. See Note 1. Copy a saved game to a Memory Unit (MU) if you have one available. # Try three other games, and then try the original game again. # Try the game on another console if possible. # Replace the disc at retailer. # Repair the console Note 1 If a saved game file is corrupted, it can produce a disk error message in that game, particularly when the game starts. You can resolve this issue by deleting all saved game files for the affected game from the Xbox hard disk. This method is effective approximately twenty-five percent of the time. If you experience this disk error message with more than two games, this procedure will likely not resolve the issue. Another trick to try is to turn your console so its vertical( sometimes works)

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.

SOURCE: xbox says disc is unreadable

Your xbox may be overheating. To fix the problem, what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

I bought a new xbox360. the game that came with it works great. I also bought the guitar hero. when i put in my new disc and it says unreadable. Replaced with a new disc still says unreadable. Other game...


If the guitar hero is new, I recommend taking it to where you purchased it and having it replaced. Tell them it will not play on your brand new XBox. Sometimes, rarely, you can get a defective disc.
Hopefully that will fix your problem. If not, you might look into returning the system for a new one.

It says the disc is unreadable and ive cleaned


Ok this worked on my mw2.
Take some toothpaste, a soft cloth.
wet the dist then dab a small amount on the game disk. (NOTE!!) STREAK OUTWARS TO THE EDGE NOT IN CIRCLE IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS IT WILL MAKE IT WORSE!.
after youve done this wash and repeat 10-15 times (note) it will take about an half an hr if you do it properly.

Madden 08 is unreadable with my hard drive connected


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.
