It means the one that wont read is scratched, dirty or defective, my advice is to clean it if its dirty, get a cd repair kit if its scratched or take it back if its defective.

Remember when Halo 3 came out?

I had pre-ordered two copies, stood in line till midnight to get my copies, and then rushed home to start playing.

I opened the brand spanking new disc, put it in my Xbox and was greeted with "unreadable disc". So, I opened my second copy of Halo 3, put it in my Xbox and.... "unreadable disc".

I tried both games in my other Xbox and both copies worked fine. Tried them both again in the first Xbox, they would read but I could play any other game I wanted to play except for Halo 3.

I called Microsoft that night, and told them my problem. 2 Xbox consoles, Halo 3 will not play in one console, all other games work fine in either console.

Solution.... I had to send the console that wouldn't play Halo 3 back to Microsoft, and they changed out the dvd drive. When the cosole came back, the exact same Halo3 disc that wouldn't work previously would now play properly.

Got the game in dec wont play got a second game and it wont load said disc unrecanisable

You chould check your disc, when you get that error, it means that the disc is unreadable, lol. Which means it cannot be read, so you can\'t play your game.

Check the back of the game disc for scratches or dust/other that shouldn\'t be there.

When insert game into my 3ds it wont read game

I have the same kind of problem. It does not read my Kingdom Hearts 3D cartridge at all, regardless of any way I tried to make it read it. I heard it may have something to do with regional difference and it's true - the 3DS comes from USA, while the game from Europe. While I have Pokemon Diamond cartridge, which is also from Europe and it reads it just fine. Does it mean the regional difference matters only in case of 3DS cartridges?
If not, how can I solve my problem?

HWhat's your problehm? headlights wont work

Run a wire from the ground lead on the headlight socket to the battery negative post, and see if that works. If you got 12v to the light and it isn't working, it almost has to be the ground.

Wont read game and says open tray

this could mean that the disc is scratched on the data (reflective) side too much to read enough to run the game properly. if this is a case there are places that you can take it to have it repaired or you can buy a disc repair kit. if it is not scratched, try cleaning it with a non-abrasive cloth, meaning a cloth that will not scratch the disc, and try again. if the problem persists you may need to find a new copy of that particular game. i hope this has been helpful.
