How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

Plug back in and power up.
Try game again.

First it can't read disc and asks to clean it, its been freezing up in the middle of a game and there is half green circle on the power button


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Freeze ups happen just before it goes to the red lights.

Opening and closing disc conpartment


Is there any game disc inside? If there is any, please try to remove it first. After removing the game disc, turn off your console, unplug from the power source then remove and reattach the hard drive. Make sure that you hear the clicking sound when you reattach your hard drive. Then plug the console again, turn it back on. Make sure that the console is well ventilated.

After turning on the console, go to the Memory, on the Xbox 360 Controller, press the following items in this sequence:
• X button
• X button
• Left bumper (LB)
• Right bumper (RB)
• X button
• X button
When you are prompted to confirm system maintenance, select Yes by pressing the A button. This will be clearing the cache of your xbox console.

If the game disc is still not reading, try cleaning your game disk or exchanging the disk at the retail store for another copy.

If the issue still persist, try answering the following: Do you receive an error message, does the console fully lockup, or does the action on screen slow down but the game still plays?

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
