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

Grand theft auto liberty city unreadable

The Xbox 360 is notorious for damaging disks if bumped while playing - But in short there is no way to fix the disc aside from paying.

You could buy a CD repair kit but they are really ineffective.

Your best option is to take the disc to a professional who has a machine specialized in disc repair from my experience this only costs 10 or so dollars and worked every time so far.

For future reference if you do happen to bump your 360 console while playing it WILL scratch the discs assure it is out of the way e.g. on a shelf.

Hope this helped

Disc unreadable

Will the unit play CD's or DVDs?
If the disc gets scuffed up near the inner ring area that might cause problems.
Also, how long have you had the system?...Dust settles into the box pretty easy.
If you can ,get some compressed CO2 ( walmart n staples sells it)
Shoot some CO2 dust off into the drive then try

AND did you turn the console off automatically, or did it stay on, and was it for hours?? Once i was playing and all of a sudden the disc went unreadable and said: pleas insert this disc into an xobx 360 console. This might be similar problem. Sorry man, guess u gotta start again.
USEFUL TIP: Almost al cheats disable an achievement, but this one cheat for a comet (NICE FAST PORSCHE) doesnt disable anything and is EXTREMELY USEFUL. of course to get it in campagn, when dialing a number type: 2275550175
it then appears, (press up on the D-pad twice in campagn to dial a number if u didnt no)
Sorry, if u want cheats reply and stuff, sorry i cant really help.

Unreadable FIFA 2008 dISC

sounds like your dvd drive is having issues. try to do a online update. that may fix the non reading disc issue. as for it damaging that cd and only that cd i would just buy a new dvd drive. most of the time when a cd comes out damaged its due to a belt spindle. which is the part that spins your disc, but your saying its only doing it to 1 game. try a update if that dont work purchase a new dvd drive. make sure u get the correct one

Discs not working

i had the same problem, was playing assassins creed and was 15 min into the game when i heard the burrrrrr sound like some vibrations, but the game kept playing and i turned it off right away. didnt start up the box until christmas day i got guitar hero, tried to start it up in front of family and got the same results as you did opening and closing and not able to read any disk. found out that warrenty was out got desparate and even thought of a switch a roo with a refundable new one.
anyways found the problem! theres a magnet that sits on the disk spinner that came off and was not able to grasp game right. just found out now and glued it back in place and now waiting for it to dry, yeah i was like hell yeah problem solved. the tricky part is taking it apart, go to ;

click on xbox repairs, then disassemble tutorail. didnt use the tool they told me to use well any ways good luck.
