Your lens is dirty, very common and is considered routine maintenance.

3 ways to fix this.

1. Buy a CD cleaner, it is a cd that has little brushes on it that clean the lens as it spins. Can buy one for under $20

2. You will need a can of compressed air for electronics. Open up your cd tray and pull the power from your 360. Push the tray half way in and position the nozzle extender for the can of air right at the cd lens and give it a few blasts of air. It may take a few times to get the nozzle in the right place.

3. Disassemble your 360 (will void warranty) and take the DVD drive out of it. After the drive is removed you can remove the cover to the drive and manually clean the lens. Put it all back together and you are back to playing games and reading disks.

Hope this helps you out.

Why does the disc reader say "no disc" after I put one in? It played earlier


Not all disc are equal.

Try a different disc. Some machines can be fussy about certain discs. Sometimes the disc itself can be kerfluewy, so try the disc in a different machine, too.

On my Husqvarna Viking sewing & embroidery machine...when I put in a floppy disc I get the error message: General disc error. What is wrong?


It can't read your disc, it may be damaged or needs to be cleaned. It could also be the wrong disc for the machine. The machine can't recognize it.

Will not read dvd disc


This can be due to dust in the machine, on the disc or surdace damage to the disc.
These are the most common causes anyway.
Clean the disc itself with plain water and wipe with a soft cloth gently to dry it.
Run a CD Cleaner disc in the machine for 30 seconds, and dust off the loading tray/area with a soft brush.
Then try again.

Try other discs to see if the machine is ok - or whether it is the new disc that is faulty.
Smetimes you have to load the disc 3 or more times untill it reads a certain bit of data correctly to start, after this it doesn't seem so important.
