    I have the same problem but only with call of duty 4. None of my other games do it. I figure it's my disc and get a new one, but it still happens. But only when trying the multiplayer mode.

Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and DiscRead Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lightsproblem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get thisproblem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons Unreadable disc canoccur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might alsobe dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to firstclean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem youcan also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

The only thing to do is get a new console, hopefully under warranty. I shipped mine back the other day for free I suggest you do too. Theres somthin wrong with the disk drives in alot of them. In COD4 when ur in the lobby, pay attention to the music in the background. If its not going, or skipping your COD4 live round most likely wont load. Try switching your Xbox from vertical to horizantal mode and vice versa. Basically just get a new box if you experience any problems because its just gonna get worse.

It might be a problem with the disc itself. Try conventional disc cleaners and repairs. If those don't work, replace the game. If it still doesn't work, then you might need to send the console back to get it repaired. If you're still under warranty.

Call of duty modern warfare 2 says 'disc unreadable', brought it back and exchanged it twice still says disc unreadable! all other games have no problem.

This is more likely the fault of your DVD drive. I suggest having a professional look at your system to test the drive. If you are under your 1-year warranty, go to, under the support section you can fill out a repair request. If you are out of warranty, contact me at and I can discuss your repair options.

"The disc is Unreadable"

check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is on its way out

Help with Call of Duty 4 singple player, multi player works fine?

I'm getting the same thing. Reinstalling will temporarily fix the problem, but it will occur again on a later stage. I'm waiting for a reply from Activision and I've posted this on the infinity ward forums and no one seems to know the cause or solution. For now, I'd say jump to a console version of the game and wait for a PC fix.
