Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console - Black

2 Answers

Can't play game for longer than 5 minutes.

I put in a game and it lets me play it for about 5 or so minutes then says the disk is unreadable and I should clean disk and restart the system. I do that and it still does that same problem.

Try putting saved files on memory card, if it still happens there is a fault with the game (programming) and return to the retailer.

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.

Disc unreadable even with new discs, tried putting console flat instead of upright still doesn't work.A game can be playing then stops and says disc unreadable!


Unreadable disk error happens because the sensors on the DVD drive are overheating, it is not normally because the drive is faulty.

You need to stop this heat build up to be able to play again. You can do this yourself or send it in

It will read some disks but not all disks and the ones it readds i try to play latter and it dont read


i had this problem with my xbox and its due to either the laser or the magnet within the disc drive that holds the disc in place. the magnet may have come loose which mean u can either open the drive up to try and reposition it, or replace the drive all together. my suggestion would be to send the xbox to microsoft if under warranty or send it to a third party company to see if they can fix it. buying a new drive for your xbox involves some very complex firmware flashing which is not advised

When i put a game in and play for a minute then it says this disc is unreadable turn off console. i did that and it still says the same thing


CHECK THE DISKS FOR AND WHITE MARKS.
IF THERE ARE WHITE MARKS ON THE DISK THESE ARE LASER MARKS FROM THE XBOX 360 BEEN MOVED WHILE A DISK WAS PLAYING IN THE CONSOLE.

IF THERE ARE NO MARKS ON THE DISK UR CD LENS NEEDS CLEANED. IF U HAVE DONE ALL OF THE ABOVE AND IT STILL DOES THE SAME THING UR XBOX 360 MAY BE FAULTY.

Unreadable disk


Have you tried ejecting the disc but not quitting out the game, wiping the disc and then putting it back in, it should say something like please insert disc, it may work, it does on the ps3

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.
