Won't read disc upon entry

I was playing Guitar Hero III this morning and came back a couple hours later and tried to reboot/turn off and on and it appears my Xbox 360 won't read any game I have. I have tried 7 different games. It just stays on the Xbox console or dashboard (not sure what it is called.) I have owned this system for 1.5 years and this is the first time this has happend. I appreciate any advice on the matter. Thank you.

Re: won't read disc upon entry

This is a well known problem for the Xbox 360. The lens is more then likely dirty. If experienced enough to take the 360 apart and clean lens, do so. If not buy a dvd player cleaner disk, it will work the same way.

No data for guitar hero III

I'm using the slim... maybe it is the type of memory card but guitar hero is the only game I've had a problem with. I just restarted the game and then beat it over again. After it said that there wasn't any data and I chose to make a new one, it said that there was data but it was corrupt. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I haven't had any trouble since I started over the other one.

Can't load guitar hero III

This happened with my old 360 and GoW. Microsoft insisted it was the disc, but it wasn't. I ended up purposely giving it the 3 Red Rings so I could send the 360 of for repair. It worked fine when I received the console back from repair.
