Hi,
check the disk is clean and scratch free.
Try seeing if it will play a DVD Or CD.
If none of these work, and it,s still under Warranty, return the console for replacement or refund as you may have a faulty/weak laser unit.

My disk is unreadable what do i do


If your disc is unreadable it is because of the system overheating and to fix it you need to stop the heat build up getting to the chips - use a good guide or send it in.

Disc is unreadable


If your disc is unreadable this is because the sensors on the back of the drive have overheated, to fix this you need to either send it in so they will stop the heat for you.

Or you can fix it yourself with a good guide

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

It will read some disks but not all disks and the ones it readds i try to play latter and it dont read


i had this problem with my xbox and its due to either the laser or the magnet within the disc drive that holds the disc in place. the magnet may have come loose which mean u can either open the drive up to try and reposition it, or replace the drive all together. my suggestion would be to send the xbox to microsoft if under warranty or send it to a third party company to see if they can fix it. buying a new drive for your xbox involves some very complex firmware flashing which is not advised

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.

Keeps saying disc unreadable


"A temporary solution" If u got the new xbox experience and enough HDD space, install game to HDD and then play from HDD. You'll probably have to send back to Microsoft eventually. Though make sure its only COD4 thats giving trouble, buy some disc cleaner and see if that helps

Unreadable Disc


Well the same thing happened to me but only on the game Bad company and it only happens on certian maps. I dont know what to do. It might be the game or the disc reader in the Xbox might be screwed up????????

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.
