Well if you put in a xbox games that isnt scratch and it wont read then my guess its the drive thats not functioning right especially when even movies wont play also thats a sign does it spin up when closed if not then thats a sign also, if it does spin up but not reconized could mean the laser might be dirty or not working. All in all it has to do with the drive just gotta trouble shoot it down with detail

I borrowed black ops from a friend and the disc comes up unreadable

If other games work in your Xbox, and that black ops works in your friends Xbox, i don't see why that would happen, i would make sure you have all the updates and that the disc you are trying to use isnt scratched or dirty.

My xbox360 is not reading any dics

I would recommend sending your xbox in to Microsoft. It may need to be under warranty. The xbox will then be fixed and returned to you in a short length of time.

My xbox 360 is not reading any disc. I tried cleaning the dics, I tried new disc and still not reading disc.

If your Xbox 360 is not reading your discs you need to stop the heat build up on the receptors at the back of the dvd drive.

To do this you need an Xbox 360 Repair guide or to send it back

Not reading dics

The disk is broken. Somewhere down the line it has worn down or been abused and now cannot be read correctly by your console.

Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can 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.
