Sending my xbox 360 to be repaired by www.videogame911.com was great for me. Not only was my Xbox360 repaired, it was also shipped back to me quickly and is working great.

Most likely a DVD drive problem. Call 1-800-4my-xbox and they should take care of it for you...especially if the console is fairly new.

Hope that helps,
Les

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.

I bought saints row 2 almost a year ago. I never played another game until last week and when I put in Saints row is stuck at 5% at the loading screen after the logo. Plz help me


It is normally the disc that either is scratched, has dust on it or is dirty.

You can clean the disc with warm water if it is dirty, that won't damage it, but don't use boiling water, that would be crossing the line.

If the game is scratched, you might check your nearest GameStop, they might have this disc fixer, or whatever they call it. They have it here in Norway, so I guess they have it most places around the world. :)

I recetly got my x box 360 flashed with 1.61 iextreme and now it plays original x box 360 games fine but the backed up discs it comes with unreadable disc error and noisy grind and after number of attempts...


Hi

If you have flashed your xbox 360 with 1.61 firmware, have you got the Wave 4 patch disc, lot of currently released games need this disc to be run first before you run the copied games,you can check on google for the updated list of Wave 4 copy protection enabled games.

If you face problem with all copied game discs, even for older ones like Gears of War 2, Halo 3 etc then you should get the drive checked with the person from whom you have got your Xbox 360 modded

Xbox 360 says "Please insert this CD into an Xbox 360"


Try to clean out your xbox 360. Or, try to clean the disc with a soft rag and windex. Or, your disc is scratched

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2


Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

A single unreadable xbox disc, all the others work
