The glass laser eye is what needs to be cleaned or just open the cd/disc drawer and blow inside real hard 2 times and you should be good. Rubbing alcohol and cotton swab.

SOURCE: unreadable disc

Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

SOURCE: unreadable disc

Sounds like the Xbox is trying to find a piece of data that it need to go further and because of a dirty or scratched disk, it can't find it. If you want to verify whether it's your disk or your Xbox, go to your local game rental store and rent a copy of the same game to see if you have the same problem.

SOURCE: xbox 360 console was knocked

Just to be on the the safe side, have you tried other games to see if they work? If yes! the game black opps. disc is the problem and will need to be replaced. If there is no change with other discs, the laser pickup assembly is damaged or a connecting cable has come loose. If the assembly is the issue, it will need to go back to Microsoft for service or a local technician.

How do I fix my xbox game the xbox keeps saying unreadable disc clean with a soft cloth and restart the console.


If you get the error with just one game, but not others, unfortunately it is likely damage to the disc. If it is under warranty, or if you bought it at a return-friendly place, maybe you can get a replacement. If the system is giving you this error with several games, it is likely the disc reader in your Xbox. The Xbox 360 has a well-known issue with DVD drive failure over time. If your system is still under warranty, or sometimes even if not (because this was such a big problem for Xbox), Microsoft may repair it. Try calling them and patiently discussing it. If it is not under warranty, and you are good with repair work, try this: http://hardandsoftgaming.wordpress.com/2011/03/12/replacing-a-faulty-xbox-360-dvd-drive-firmware-flash-or-circuit-board-transplant/

I have a xbox360 and it doesn't let me play the games i have. It keeps saying disc is unreadable, clean it with a soft cloth or restart console. I tried both they didn't work what should I do.


there is a laser inside the Xbox that reads game discs. Someone might have touched the laser. You need to either take it apart and clean the laser or get some one to do it professionally. I personally took my xbox apart. Been working for 5 years know.

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray


The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.
