First off, try the obvious, clean the lens with an insertable disc cleaner. If that doesn't work, you'll have to crack the case, open the drive and clean it gently with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. If that STILL doesn't work, then you will have to order a new drive or replacement lens. You can find them on Ebay all day long

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 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 that 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, now Choice is yours.

I played last at 12am and woke up at 9am and turned the 360 and the disc unreadable came up. So I did what I always do which is cleaning the disc and tray and put it back in and it still came up. So I put in another game and same problem. Then I tried a game that hasnt been opened and it still did it. I have had my xbox for 3 months and used it quite frequently, when it works its great but their is way to many screw ups with this system.

I think microsoft screwed up. I have been to several sites and read somewhere about a time slot of 3-5 months of haveing a 360 and it end up saying unreadable or unplayable and sometimes open-tray. I have bought 2 360's within an eight month period. And both times within 3-5 months this happened. I keep buying new ones cause it costs me 150 bux to get it repaired or so I was told. 360's are great and all but so unrealiable. My nintendo 64 still works and banjo is still playable. Must we go back to game paks. Cause these discs are unreliable. Oh and all I can do is play stupid demos.
