Same deal I had my 360 returned to me with an extended 3 month warranty. sure enough. after 95 days it craps out and would read discs after 30-70th try. then one day when i was opening the tray to put Halo Wars in, my little bro just barely walked into the xbox. since that day it would Only read games that I didnt own or Guitar Hero II (Which i did own). then around April it stopped reading discs alltogether. I'm friggen broke and cant work due to a heart condition. if anyone has any easy step by step process or figures out what the problem is please respond

Xbox 360 will not read discs but will read dvds. Xbox only 15 months old. Why can u help. Many thanks. Joe

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If you still are having trouble the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site:

Xbox 360 wont read any disk

Im not sure on the warranty. A year ago i had the 3 lights and microsoft replaced it free of charge. Call them up and ask them because most likely you may have a faulty lens/drive.

CoD4 disc won't read.

how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.

Wont read disc

Have you tried multiple games? Perhaps the particular game in question is scratched, or is no longer being read by the XBOX 360.
