If the console stoped reading games after the fall it is likely that the laser got
knock out of aliment or jamed or even a scratched lens caused by the game making
contact with the laser as it was spinning. So it's hard to say with out opening it up
and testing it . but the most likely got knock out of aliment. easy fix if that's the case.

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Everytime I start my xbox 360 or put in any game/dvd/cd it makes a two sounds right after the other, says it is reading the disc and doesnt play. This started after playing a used version of Ironman from...

Whatever was on that disk has either blocked the laser from reading or has damaged it beyond cleaning (those cleaner disks are **** they plain and simply don't work). If you want to try to open your console to attempt to clean it or to even replace your disk drive let me know otherwise gamestop sells refurbished consoles for about $120

Ea Games NHL 09 and NHL 10 won't play

I would recommend going back to the shop you got the game from and asking for a new copy, it seems more likely to be a disc problem than a console one, and just check that it is the correct format for your region.

My Fable 2 disk has a huge scratch around the edges. HOw do I clean it? It's not readable by my xbox.

This is called laser burn,this is caused by a faulty laser in the disk drive or by knocking the console when its on. The best way to get this repaired if its not too bad, is to take it to a major games store like game station or blockbusters, they have a machine that can wash this off, it costs about £2.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

I have brought 2 top of the range games in the past 3 months and now i cannot play them because of what my xbox has done to them. The xbox would start to play the game then suddenly stop. When takeing out...

If the scratch you mentioned is all around the disk this is called laser burn, this can be caused by knocking the console while it is on, if that is not the case there is a problem with the dvd drive which will is best to be replaced.If you have only just bought the game take it back to the shop where you bought it with the recipt, explain what happened they may replace it, if they wont they have a machine that can skim the burn off, at blockbusters this costs £2.
Hope this helps.
