Hi their could be 2 reasons this is happening it could be their is to much dust on the lense so cleaning it may solve the problem or it could mean the dvd drive needs replacing if this is the case check if you have any warranty as your covered for 3 years so check the date on the back

to clean the lense go to a computer hardware store and buy a can of compressed air then open the tray and turn the xbox off at the wall so the tray is still in the out position then give it a good spray through the small opening.

if after doing that it still dont work you could also try a lense cleaning cd also from hardware store but if that also dont work your going to need to get a new dvd drive, its not just a case of changing the drive you need to transfer the firmware off your drive onto the firmware of the new drive so its not an easy job to do.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Yes my xbox 360 keeps saying every game that i put in is not readable and i have tryed to clean the lens and nothing still it will read the cleaning disk but no games do u have a solution on how to get it...

"Open Tray" thats what you get when you put a game, your lens no longer works. A lens cost around $7 on ebay and its simple to install. Try to send it to a local shop as they have the proper tools.

I can get into the dashboard but it says that the disk is un readable

Is it every disk that is unreadable? If it is only 1 disk then that disk is damaged, you me be able to repair it by using the cd repair machines they sell at stables and best buy. If it cant be repaired you need to buy a new copy of the disk.
Hope this helps, Joe

My xbox 360 doesnt let me create a fighter fo fight night round 4

disk is scratched, you can get it fixed at a local cd/ music store or electronic store, they scrape a think layer of plastic off it making it readable again.

Xbox 360 disk drive not working right

Ok, if you are sure this disk is readable and all the other disk work fine, this will confirm optical lens damage. i would replace this optical lens assembly asap. this will fix your issue.

You should know that, if the Xbox states that the disk is unreadable, it may be the disk. if you are positive that this disk is good, simply replace the optical lens assembly.

Unreadable disk

Go out to ur local Wal-Mart and get a disk cleaner it costs like 2 maybe 3 dollars and wipe down ur disk and put it into ur system and if you still have the problem then take a clean wash rag or just a rag and wipe the disk drive with it but be very gentle or it will break and keep the rag dry!
