Un able to read disc, freezing

I bought a refurbished 360 today and I have already gone through 3 halo discs. It keeps saying unable to read disc. Also, the dashboard locks up all the time. I can't even log onto live, it just sits there logging in and out, then freezing up

Player faild to load content


Its possible that your Xbox360 is having a hard time reading your game disc. Try to clean your Xbox360's lens by using a CD lens cleaner. If you are still having problems after doing that, its possible that your game disc is already bad.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!

This most likley a weak laser .

it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .

Halo 3 disc problems

Microsoft has confirmed that if you have either the heroic or the legendary package that these discs are malfunctioned. I suggest you exchange it from the retailer you bought it from or call in microsoft and they ship you another halo 3 free of charge.

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.
