Not completely useful for everyone here, but when your console won't read a disc occasionally, it's always worth it to run the disc under the sink for a minute or so. Just use luke-warm water and let it run across the surface of the disc. Carefully dry it in a way that you won't be scratching the surface.

I've occasionally had problems reading discs from PS1 all the way to the 360, and this trick hasn't failed me. Of course, this does nothing if it's a hardware problem. Just thought I'd throw it out there. Good luck!

For those people who's gamesw of 1 sort (cod4, oblivion) try this out. Turn your console off, and then remove all the accessories that are attached, including the Xbox Hard Drive. Turn the console on to see whether the problem still occurs. • If the problem does not occur when the Xbox Hard Drive is disconnected, try clearing the Xbox 360 Hard Drive cache. To clear the Xbox 360 Hard Drive cache, follow these steps: 1. Re-attach the Xbox Hard Drive. 2. Locate the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard. 3. Select Memory, select Hard Drive, and then press Y to view the device options screen. 4. On the Xbox 360 Controller, press the X button, press the X button again, press the left bumper, press the right bumper, press the X button, and then press the X button again. 5. You will be prompted to confirm system maintenance. Select Yes by pressing A. • If this problem occurs when the Xbox Hard Drive is attached, and clearing the hard drive cache did not resolve the issue, create a new gamer profile, and then test to see whether the issue still occurs. If the issue does not occur when you use a new gamer profile, the issue may be related to the original gamer profile or saved game information for one or more games that are associated with the original gamer profile. To verify this, delete the saved games for all games that show this problem for the original gamer profile.

If it happens with all/any disks you insert into you xbox360 it means the spindle and/or laser for the disks is busted. You will need to ship to MS to fix it. If not under warranty its $100 to fix. Mine did this RIGHT after the warranty expired.

Your discs may be messed up ive heard that if your console is laying on its side that it can scratch the disks although its never happend to me. your console may just be damaged from shipping or any error that you had no control over. if none of your games are working call xbox customer support again see what they say.
