The problem is most likely a weak laser . And in some
cases a weak spindle- wormgear motor .
The sure fire way to fix this is to simply find out
what drive you have ( the tray style should identify your drive)
then buy the same make/model from ebay 30-40.00
and remove the P.C. board from your old drive and install
it to the new drive and It's Fixed.

Or you can have a shop swap it out for 70.00-90.00

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

My daughters xbox 360 sometimes plays for awhile, and other times says cant read disk when her game will play it either freezes up or just quits then it says cant read disk

hi, how well does your daughter look after her games? if her disk's have scratches on them the xbox will have trouble reading it and will often do this. another cause is that the xbox is old the laser will be worn out and will take ages to load a game.

the 2 solutions are:
1. check the disk, if it is highly scratched go get it cleaned, most gaming stores will do it for a small fee
2. take apart the xbox (only if out of warranty and step-by-step instructions can be found on youtube) and clean it gently with a duster

Clean your disk tray and the cd. If that doesnt work try unplugging your xbox 360 for 30 mins. If all else fails send your Xbox to repairs.

Takes up to 30-45 min to load my games to play.

Sounds like the lens is damaged. Try sending it in for repairs or buy a disk that can clean the lens

Disc unreadable

Dude mine does the same thing

What I do is pop off the front cover
find a black gear under DVD drawer and with game loaded move gear all the way to the left which engages drawer disc positioning to proper place for a "read" if I leave my disk partially raised it will scratch the disk!!!

This is what works for me-{out of warranty}
