Try to clean out your xbox 360. Or, try to clean the disc with a soft rag and windex. Or, your disc is scratched

SOURCE: to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.

when this happens, it either symbolizes that somehow, your tsop32 chip has corrupted in your dvd drive and has lost the dvd key, or you (someone) has attempted to flash the firmware on the dvd drive and it has ended in a failure and destroyed the initial firmware. basicly, if you have your dvd key, you can try to reflash the drive with working firmware (tutorials can be found everywhere) or, if you have warrenty left, send it in. if all else fails, find a person who knows how to disassemble an xbox 360 + dvd drive, desolder the tsop32 chip, and rip the firmware. this can be costly though, and you'll need a new dvd drive afterwords if your old one gets broken in the process. and if you can't get the dvd key, well, your 360 is now an expensive dvd player.

best of luck

Xbox360 disks wont reed

I'll need some more information to truly help you,
Is the disc spinning when you put it in (can you hear it trying to read)
What does the xbox dashboard say when a disc is inserted? Are there any error codes or "no disc inserted" message?
Try another game disc if you can. Sometimes discs get scratched or dirty, in which case you can clean it or have it professionally cleaned.
If that doesn't work, Try cleaning your laser lens
There are several places that will clean your laser lens, or if you're a little more technologically inclined, You can open your system yourself and clean the lens with some alcohol and a q-tip.
If none of the above works, you may need to have your xbox professionally repaired.

When I put a disc in t says, to play this disc you need to put it in a xbox 360 consol. Of course it is in an xbox 360.

If you have legitimate Xbox 360 hardware device, you get this error if you try to play a copied game it would give you this error.

Happy Gaming, please do take time to rate my solution

Free repair help

XBOX 360 games have security codes embedded within. The motor is going out or likely filled with dust and debris that will not allow it to spin the game fast enough for the XBOX to recognize the security codes therefore telling you ''Please insert the disc into an Xbox 360 console''. Keep in mind, these DVD drives are nthing more than that. I am sure you can order a new motor online for a few dollars.

This is a guide to open your XBOX 360

ALL YOU NEED IS THE MOTOR (found on ebay, etc.) and the DVD drive will tell you the brand name right on the top of it once you have opened the console.

Good luck

Disc drive for xbox 360 isnt working properly

You have to put the key from the old drive into the new one. The Key is the board under the laser. It is specific to your xbox.

Won't read disc's

theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

360 GAME

If the disc is not scratched and doesn't have any flaws on it, cleaning the disc and trying it once more may solve the issue, if that doesn't work try to check it by putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console, if they all work that would be definitely a fault with the disc itself and in a case like this you have the right to exchange it from the retailer you bought it from as it's not scratched.

In all cases if other game discs are giving you the same error message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc" you need then to contact Xbox 360 customer support to send your console to get repaired or exchanged.
