More likely then not you got a BD failure.

1. try a audio disk if that reads then you need to replace the BD drive inside.
2. If the audio does not read ether you going to need to get the unit repaired as this could even lead to more issues like the controller.

You can also try resetting the unit by turning it off then back on hold down the power button to you hear it beep then you will see a screen, you select reset to factory defualts.

all else fails www.videogamerepair.com can help get this thing going again for you.

On my xbox, the game cod mw3 wont work. it will work for like 1 min. and say disc unreadable.


Hi the dude,

Is this an issue with any other games you have? If it is then it is likely you will need to clean your laser disc.

However, I am assuming that this is just an issue with a specific game. The disc that you have is likely scratched or faulty to some degree. Replacing this disk is likely the only way you will ever play this game again.

I put the game fifa 09 in on my wii and when it gets to the starting menu its says this disc is unreadable


it is possible you have a bad disc/scratched disc or you have a bad laser to read the disc. are you able to play other games on it and is the disc scratched? every disc has a boot up menu it has to go through and if the disc is scratched in the area of the boot mapping then it wont load. thus giving you an error.

When i put my ps3 games in they don't show up in the menu. nor do they auto start. the same thing happens with movies?


You can enable or disable auto run in the settings area on the XMB, but I've never heard of the disc not showing up at all. Even if the disc was unreadable, the PS3 would say "Corrupted Data" or something. You should go through your PS3's settings and see if there's anything that's not right. Maybe there's a "Hide disk" option enabled. Sorry I couldn't help more.

Hello,

The following website sells the drives and does installs:
store.richsparts.com

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!
Hope this will help...
