    Do you have the issue with other games? Is this a new disc, or one that has played fine before but is suddenly having issues?

Everyone is posting some extreme fixes, first you need to isolate the problem. Try another disk and if it works then you know the problem is with the drive. It would help if you could try your Rainbow 6 disk in another 360 too. Post back what happens

Does your drive make some loud noises while trying to read the disk. Mine is getting unreadable disk errors sometimes in the middle of a game and it makes a terrible noise for a few seconds. Doesn't do it all the time and some games still work fine. I need to get a new drive the same model and change it over I think. Looks like you do to.
They are cheap to buy on Ebay from hong Kong or wherever. Easiest way is to open your xbox, buy a new DVD drive same model as your current drive. When you get it, open the cases on both drives and carefully unhook the ribbon cables holding the circuit boards in and swap the board from your old drive into the new one you bought.
You don't have to try and flash your new drive that way so it's a lot easier. I stuffed up one brand new replacement drive by trying to see if I could learn how to flash the software in it myself. Swapping circuit boards is meant to be easy so I will try that way next time I can afford to buy another one.

I put the game fifa 09 in on my wii and when it gets to the starting menu its says this disc is unreadable

it is possible you have a bad disc/scratched disc or you have a bad laser to read the disc. are you able to play other games on it and is the disc scratched? every disc has a boot up menu it has to go through and if the disc is scratched in the area of the boot mapping then it wont load. thus giving you an error.

If disc is scratched or dirty, can it be resurfaced?

If it is dirty you can clean any fingerprints with a dry cotton t-shirt ; however if the disc reads unreadable you might have to buy a new disc.

The game i have is scratched it only work for one nazi map and when i try to play career it ses disc unreadable what do i do

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.

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.
