Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
First things first,
It is not a disc pbolem it's a problem with the xbox 360 DVD drive.
If your warranty is still valid then SEND IT BACK TO MICROSOFT as the other way to solve it requires you to take apart your console which WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
The the problem is caused by a build up of grease inside the drive which stops the drive reading the discs correctly.
If you know what you are doing then follow this breif guide, if you DON'T then take it back to microsoft or find a professional who knows what they're doing!
After you have your console apart or at least to the point where you can see the DVD drive, the next step to actually take the disc drive cover off, after that, you’re going to need to completely remove all the screws that are holding the disc drive in place. Make sure to unplug the two cords on the back of drive before pulling it out.
Next: Once you have removed the disc drive from the console, flip it over and remove the two screws located on the back side of the disc drive, (also, make sure when you flip it over, not to scratch the lens).
Once you got that finished, the next step is to remove the circular rotor (motor) there will be 3 small screws, you’ll need a very small Allen (1.5 mm) wrench to remove them, after that, just gently push the lens upwards out of the way ,then pull the motor out. Once you’ve got the motor out, you can pull off the motor wheel (black round wheel), there will be a little rod, prong thing, and this is exactly what’s causing your Xbox 360 to have the unplayable disc error, so what you need to do, once you get to this point, is to just clean off all the excess grease on the rod that’s attached to the motor wheel, you can use rubbing alcohol, then get some lubricant (W-D 40) spay it on the part (the wheel) and gently place it back onto the motor and that’s it, all you need to do after that is put your Xbox 360 back together.
