It's a weak/dead laser 90% or a weak spindle motor 10%
laser are cost 20.00-30.00 from Rich's PSX and with the
help of an online video you should be able to swap it out
and save 60.00+ on the repair.

Or have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00

if you need more info , ask.

This is not normally the drive that is faulty, but more to do with the sensors on the back of the drive overheating, stop the heat and you will be fine.

You can send it in to do this or use a good guide

You could try cleaning the laser or your spinner, and if your tray is having problems with it opening or when the tray is closed it says tray open, try to clean the tray and laser and the problem should be solved.
other then that, your laser might be failing.

Thats a little vague but its a possibility your drive is going bad. You should be able to purchase a drive from microsoft or from your local gamestore. They offer them in HiDef as well.
Good Luck

My xbox keeps saying disc unreadable when i am half way in race i can get on the menu fine but as soon as i start a race it says unreadable disc what shall i do


Sounds like a bad spot on the disc. Or, it could be the drive itself.
On the original xbox I had problems with the optical reader doing this same thing.
Is it only the one game doing it? Try another game on your box, and try your disc on a different box if you can.

The consul keeps stopping mid-game & the screen says 'disc unreadable' although disc is perfect


2 things to try here. The simplest is to put a disc drive cleaner into the dvd drive and run it a few times. If this doesn't solve your problem, consider installing the game to the harddrive. Sometimes this helps especially if the error occurs during loading or cutscenes.

My disc keeps on saying its unreadable,when i clean it and restart the console,and put it back in the xbox it will play for a while and then it will say its unreadable again


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.

"The disc is Unreadable"


check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is on its way out

Keeps saying disc unreadable


"A temporary solution" If u got the new xbox experience and enough HDD space, install game to HDD and then play from HDD. You'll probably have to send back to Microsoft eventually. Though make sure its only COD4 thats giving trouble, buy some disc cleaner and see if that helps
