Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Madden 08 is unreadable with my hard drive connected

My 360 all of a sudden did not want to read madden 08. The game came up but at the main screen where you press start the "disc is unreadable" came up. I bought a new copy of this same exact game thinking it would fix my problem and....Nothing. It did the exact same thing with a brand new game. Xbox customer service was no help. They keep telling my that it was a bad disc but would not listen to me when I told them this was a brand new game. During troubleshooting we disconnected the hard drive and the game worked fine. After putting the hard drive back on and powering up the disc unreadable came up at the same spot as previous. Could someone please tell me what is wrong. Every other game I have works just fine. Thanks

    My son is having the exact same problem and error message with both Madden O8 and NBA. Both are EA Games not microsoft games. The microsoft games we've tried all work fine. Has anyone contacted EA?

    I already tried a brand new game. It does the same thing.

    exact same problem....only that game...i think it is more of a game issue then a system issue....perhaps there is something about the game that the system can't handle....ie graphics, sound....something .........its not scratches,..its not the surface of the game ....its something IN the game itself....happens to me every second time i play madden....

Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.

Need help!!!!!!!!!!!


A previously released Madden NFL 08 update for the PLAYSTATION 3 was causing an error code (80010009) to appear and prevent online game play.

There has been a fix published by Electronic Arts (EA) on this problem.

This has now been resolved, but if you already downloaded the update, you will need to remove it before the game will work.

Please follow the steps provided by Electronic Arts below.


If you have encountered an '80010009' error message after downloading the most recent Madden NFL 08 update, please perform the following steps listed below:
  1. Press the PS button on the controller and select QUIT.
  2. In the main screen of the XMBTM user interface, select Game.
  3. Highlight the Game Data Utility folder and press the X button.
  4. Highlight the Madden NFL 08 file and press the Triangle button.
  5. Delete the file.
  6. Restart the game.
This will allow you to launch and play Madden NFL 08.

Disc is unreadable?


-. Use a standard CD/DVD Cleaner, they look like a normal CD but with two miniature brushes on them. This will only clean the lens. Sometimes this is all you need to be up and running. -Clean the lens and mirror manually -Adjust the Potentiometer (pot) on the laser. you do nto have to see dust lens might be dirty from reguler use of teh dvd and or cd of games BR Raheeeeb
