Dropped console, now get 'unreadable disc' erro

I dropped my console :( Now I get an 'unreadable disc' error everytime I try install a disc. I tried took the hard drive off and then put it back but I think the error is with the disc drive. Is there a bigger issue I should be aware of?

Xbox displays disc unreadable error on any disk


Look here for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909819

Look at the link and try some of the suggested tips, like removing the memory units, etc. Microsoft suggests that damaged/dirty discs could be the culprit as well as discs that are from different regions; however, if your console keeps doing this with *everything* you try to play or watch, then this could be the sign of a defective disc drive, or a sign that your Xbox is about to kick the bucket. A former friend of mine complained about unreadable disc errors and then a few days later, his Xbox red ringed.

Disk unreadable but clean disk not scratached


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOmNtrStDgM
Turned on your Xbox 360 console one day and and when you try to play your game you got the message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc".....??
First determine whether it's a fault with the disc or not, by having a look on the disc itself & make sure it's not scratched and there are no flaws even on it, and try other game discs on your Xbox 360 console .
If your disc is scratched or have flaws try putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console just to make sure it's the disc not the actual console causing the error, If other disc are working fine, refer to the scratched discs page on our website to know what are the steps you have to follow to get it sorted out.
If the disc is not scratched and doesn't have any flaws on it, cleaning the disc and trying it once more may solve the issue, if that doesn't work try to check it by putting other discs in your Xbox 360 console, if they all work that would be definitely a fault with the disc itself and in a case like this you have the right to exchange it from the retailer you bought it from as it's not scratched.
In all cases if other game discs are giving you the same error message "This disc is unreadable" OR "Unplayable disc" you need then to contact Xbox 360 customer support to send your console to get repaired or exchanged.

The consul keeps stopping mid-game & the screen says 'disc unreadable' although disc is perfect


2 things to try here. The simplest is to put a disc drive cleaner into the dvd drive and run it a few times. If this doesn't solve your problem, consider installing the game to the harddrive. Sometimes this helps especially if the error occurs during loading or cutscenes.

Disc unreadable even with new discs, tried putting console flat instead of upright still doesn't work.A game can be playing then stops and says disc unreadable!


Unreadable disk error happens because the sensors on the DVD drive are overheating, it is not normally because the drive is faulty.

You need to stop this heat build up to be able to play again. You can do this yourself or send it in

Random unreadable disc errors


I had the same problem but i sent it in. They said it was the eye reader error. Or the thing that reads the disc. Try buying a brand new game and try playing it. Alot of times when i have disc read errors i put the disc in where the xbox 360 part at the top goes in facing the xbox. Try that to see if it helps.

Xbox 360 unreadable disc


If you have a close-by friend check the game on his xbox to see if you get the same error. If you do not, then it is most likely your xbox. You may need to return it to Microsoft.

Try to insert the disc, power off the xbox, unplug it completely. Wait 30 seconds then plug everything in and power it back on and see if you get the same error message.

If none of these suggestions are an option, you may want to purchase a $10-$25 CD that has bristles that cleans the lens that reads the CD's inside the unit. (I know Maxell makes them) Then try the game again.
