Bought guitar hero warriors of rock for the xbox 360 and the disk is unreadable. My console only has the 4gb harddrive( non removable i think). It can read call of duty. GH is brand new just out of the box...

From the sound of it, you may need to get a replacement disc. Sometimes during the packaging process games get damaged and if you just bought the game and still have the receipt then you should be able to get a replacement easily. What you may also try is a power cycle on you Xbox 360. Make sure Guitar Hero is in the system tray then unplug the power cable from the wall outlet and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug it back in and turn on the console and see if it works.

Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.

A tough one. I also suffered from open tray errors often and have found that sometimes all you need is a good laser cleaner ( designed for laptops or pc's ).Hope this helps.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.

Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.

Disc unreadable

Know what? I've had your same problem... Bought BF:BC, and it'll tell me that it's an un-readable disk, or says "Play DVD"... 
I've also already returned the game once, for another copy and there's no positive changes.
The rest on my games work, just not BF:BC.

Having 360 trouble!

Possibly the motherboard is bust and need replacing - I've had mine repaired under warranty for a similar fault and that's what Microsoft told me the problem was.

I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!

Sound But No Picture

This Just happened to me. There seems to be a lot of solder issues with the 360. I bit the bullet and tried the towel trick, where you over heat the 360 for about 20 min. I Let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again.
