Double check you a/v cables white yellow for regular tv and red blue green for hdtv. also check the tv/hdtv switch on the xbox end of the cable.Try swapping cables with a friend that has a working system and see it works.

Yeah my cod black ops game has had 2 layers wiped off the disc to get rid of the scratches to see if it works better, but it hasnt helped one bit, whenever it does read my disc it always say clean disc and...

Unfortunately when you remove so many layers from the disk, it becomes unreadable. This is what it sounds like to me. I would contact Gamestop as I hear that they might have a way to help you in this situation.

Good luck to you!

My xbox keeps saying disc unreadable when i am half way in race i can get on the menu fine but as soon as i start a race it says unreadable disc what shall i do

Sounds like a bad spot on the disc. Or, it could be the drive itself.
On the original xbox I had problems with the optical reader doing this same thing.
Is it only the one game doing it? Try another game on your box, and try your disc on a different box if you can.

Xbox 360 disc read error

I see your problem, i've had same problems.
1) First, try to change the orientation of your Xbox, if its vertical, turn it 90 degrees to a horizontal position,
2) if that didn't work, try cleaning your disks, wipe then with a soft cloth.
3) use compressed air to try to clean the inside of your Xbox, iy may be dust which is causing the problem.
4) If none of those worked, then maybe this could be a DVD drive failure, you may send it in to Microsoft.

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.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.

Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now:

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

Here's a place to buy a replacement drive:

And lastly here's a tutorial with more details:
