Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console - Black

Open Question

Okay, goin for a shot in the dark here.\r\nI would like to know if there is any way to burn some sort of boot disk for my xbox 360. I have a copy of Saints Row 2, and when I got it back from my friend it had a small.... "Problem" with it. The paper-ish information side of the disk has a small what looks like air bubble on the bottom. There is a crack right there as well. My friend downloaded his new copy of Saints 2 to his Xbox and I did the same to mine. On his Xbox, the disk starts the game immediatly, but on Mine it hardly works, even though I installed it properly. I got it to work ONCE today, but I havent been able to get it to since. Is there any sorta thing I can burn to a disk to Boot the game, so I can just play it offa the hard drive? Thanks!

SOURCE: my xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2

Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

My xbox 360 cannot always read the disk..what causes this

Make sure the xbox is on a stable platform - there is an issue with laser burn - any instability can cause the laser to touch the disk. Could be you have been lucky not to lose any disks so far.
Please let me know if this helps.

Since my xbox 360 has been repaired it won't play copied dvd's

your drive is modded with special firmware(software). What happens eventually is the laser is going out on the DVD-drive. When a DVD is burned on a computer it is not as readable as a DVD is that is produced in large factories that Microsoft use to make 360 games. So you should be able to play 360 games you buy fine and some burned games but not all of them. Replacing the laser is hard. A temporary solution would be to burn your games at a slow speed like 2.4x or even 1x.

My disk wont download becauseit is to scratch up. is there a way i could burn my disk to a new disk

Not without going through many gyrations, XBOX mods, etc.

Also, if the disk is too scratched for the XBOX to read, it is most likely too boogered up for you to copy it, even if you could easily copy it. which you can't.

Hi, I'm still unable to update the xbox 360

your probably not doing anything Wrong.
did you boot the console then eject the draw, and put the update disk In ?
it should read the disk, then tell you it,s an update, and ask you if you want to update the console.
Make sure your hard-drives connected.
The only other thing i can suggest, is to make sure your 360 reads the disks or media your using.
if you try burning a music cd, and see if the 360 recognises it, you,ll know the media or Blank CD/DVD is good for the 360 to read. another method is to add a dummy file of about 80-100mb.
this ensures the 360 sees the disk.
try different media/disks and different methods.
if it still does,nt work for you. mail me your e-mail address and i,ll forward you 1 already made.

regards Mike @ compurepair.

Xbox 360 unplayabledisk problem

When does this happen?  Does it happen when you put a game disk in (a game that has not been burned or copied to a dvd disk). Or does this happen when you put burned audio cd in?
