Disc unreadable While playing my xbox 360 i will encouter a problem. After about 20-25 minutes my xbox will stop working and read Disc Unreadable. I have cleaned all my games multipule times yet this still is the problem. I tryed buying a cooler to place on the back of my Xbox to see if the problem was over heating but this was not the case the xbox continued to read Disc unreadable. After this would occur i would not beable to play my xbox for 15-30 minutes due to the disc not being recognized. Please help me.

I was told to by an air can and clean out the eye that reads the disc along with all the holes that are in the Xbox, it may be due to dust.  Microsoft wont help its is worthless.

You will need to either repair the disc using a repair kit, find a game shop that repairs disc, or purchase a new copy of the game. You are getting a message saying that the disc is unreadable because the scratches prevent the laser from reading the data.

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

Random unreadable disc errors


I had the same problem but i sent it in. They said it was the eye reader error. Or the thing that reads the disc. Try buying a brand new game and try playing it. Alot of times when i have disc read errors i put the disc in where the xbox 360 part at the top goes in facing the xbox. Try that to see if it helps.

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
