Re: unreadable disc

Uh....maybe it's just scratched? You can get them repaired at some places.

Whenever i put a game in it makes a loud noise

This is more than likely just your Xbox starting up. It does on mine as well.

But if it hasn't happened before it could be a problem.

It could be part of the insides of the console hitting the disc, this can scratch the disc and damage it.

If you have your 360 vertical try to change it so it is horizontal but with the power button on the right side of where you put your discs in.

Make sure that you remove the game inside it before doing this, as moving around your console when it is on can damage the game and will increase the chances of it breaking, even when it is off it could damage it.

If you ever receive a message saying the game is unreadable then that could be because of that 'loud vibrating noisde'.

Don't worry!

Random unreadable disc errors

I had the same problem but i sent it in. They said it was the eye reader error. Or the thing that reads the disc. Try buying a brand new game and try playing it. Alot of times when i have disc read errors i put the disc in where the xbox 360 part at the top goes in facing the xbox. Try that to see if it helps.

My xbox is making a noise when i put in a disc and some times it stops and the game plays but when i eject it it starts again also it sometimes doesnt read the disc and the unreadable disc screen comes up....

Well, with xbox I'm not to sure, but play station2 my son stepped on his and it didn't read the disk that was in it, but it played others, just is very noisy now, you could try contacting microsoft, they are very helpful with refunds -

For more microsoft support you either contact them live through computer, email, or phone,
