On my xbox, the game cod mw3 wont work. it will work for like 1 min. and say disc unreadable.

Hi the dude,

Is this an issue with any other games you have? If it is then it is likely you will need to clean your laser disc.

However, I am assuming that this is just an issue with a specific game. The disc that you have is likely scratched or faulty to some degree. Replacing this disk is likely the only way you will ever play this game again.

Xbox displays disc unreadable error on any disk

Look here for more information:

Look at the link and try some of the suggested tips, like removing the memory units, etc. Microsoft suggests that damaged/dirty discs could be the culprit as well as discs that are from different regions; however, if your console keeps doing this with *everything* you try to play or watch, then this could be the sign of a defective disc drive, or a sign that your Xbox is about to kick the bucket. A former friend of mine complained about unreadable disc errors and then a few days later, his Xbox red ringed.

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

This disc unreadable in xbox360 console (rainbow six:vegas) wont play any xbox 360 games, but plays dvds just fine

Disk Drive is Broke samething for me but nothing worked but what you do is call


They tell you everything, what to time how long you will get your xbox back

The two most imporant things they give you is a UPS Tracking Code and Tracking code these let you track your xbox and the last thing I'll say this issue cant really be fixed so they send you a whole new console.

I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
