This is a common problem and cleaning discs may help but wont solve the problem as the problem is with the laser in the dvd drive.
there are 2 things u could try, 1 replace the laser, available on ebay for approx £5.00, from hongkong but worth the wait as they are around £30 over here in the uk.or if u have the know how, open up the dvd drive and turn it upside down, you will see a boomerang shaped piece of metal with 3 small screws holding it in place, remove the screws and the black disc where the dvd would sit will detach, clean the inside thoroughly and apply some wd40 or similiar oil to the spindle and motor casing, reassemble and u should be a ok.

Have you tried any other disks , beacause i had that problem and it wouldnt read any of my disks. so i took it back and got it replaced, if it doesnt read any other disk then it needs to be replaced. if its under warrenty send it back to where you got it from or e-mail xbox support and they'l help you through what to do but i think you might have to pay 2 repair it. if it does read othe disks try replacing the original disk.

Try cleaning the discs. It worked for a guy that had a problem with his PSP. Or maybe you should let it rest for a while.

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,

When I put may kinect game in the xbox it says the disc is unreadable, then it says to clean disc with a soft cloth and restart the console. I did that several times and it still wont work. What should i...


If the disc has a lot of scratches then it is the fault of the disc. The Xbox360 is known to scratch up discs so you can either buy a new copy of the game or follow the video in the link below. http://www.ehow.com/video_4774663_repair-xbox-360-game-discs.html
If the disc is fine then the laser of the Xbox360 that reads the discs may have issues. If that is the case then you will need to send it to Microsoft to repair for a fee or find someone who knows how to take apart and fix a 360.

My xbox wont read any discs


Maybe1)The Xbox 360 does not recognize a disc in the DVD drive

2)Disc is "unreadable" to the Xbox 360

3)DVD drive tray will not respond or move

Every issue has its own unique cause. A disc with scratches could be an issue. You should have no problems getting this issue fixed. See if another disc does the same thing.
It most likely says "Unable to read disc" because it probably can't read the disc! If I were you, I would try cleaning off the disc you are using, then putting it back into theXbox 360 and try again. It may also be scratched repetitively, which cannot be fixed and you may need to buy a new copy of the disc.The disc is the incorrect region - DVDs come in formats called "regions." These regions match the region specified in the software of the DVD player. Some games also have these regions. If the region of the DVD and that of the player do not match, the disc will not play.

Xbox360 wont read disk


what does it say when you put the disc in and trys to read? If it says unreadable disc then take a postcard or a little index card and put it in the tray while its closed with a disc inside and start from the left and swipe slowly to the right and it should start working

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
