Yes this has something to do with the laser lens. it mostly happens when you change the position(vertical to horizontal or vice-versa) of the console while it is on and playing. i'm so sorry to tell you this but in this case, the lens has changed it original position so as to read the disc well in its new position and as such burnt through the first, second and third layer of the disc causing permanent damage to it and so it cannot be read again. though it would detect the cd but would not load the game. i heard the only way you can go about this is to get a clean copy of the game(maybe from a friend) and install it on the HDD of the console and this way it would play even when you put in the bad disc. i'm not so sure of this though. let me know if you have any other issues and hope this helped you?

try to clean the disc with a clean cotton cloth or you can use a cleaning fluid for the disc then dry with a cotton cloth or a damp cloth then put it on the XBOX 360 if that does not work the disc is really damaged or check the disc if its a light scratch or permanent scratch mark

My fable 2 disc wont work and its only been play twice HELP!!


Try your Fable 2 disc on a friend's console that you know works and see if it plays. This would rule out the possibility of it being your Xbox for sure. Then it would have to be the game. If you didn't buy it too long ago, look inside the game package and find Fable 2's tech support number or go to their website and try to get a hold of them. Good Luck!

Wii is scratching discs and unable to load


If there are kids around check if something is inside it. If there is and it is rubbing on the disk it will slow the disk so the console won't read it. It does kind of look like a coin slot.

Scratch


happend to me when a friend knocked over my console while playing. ive heard that if your console is on its side then it might scratch the disk. I would suggest standing the console up and playing if its laying down. and to fix the disks buy a game doctor or take it to a store that re-buffs discs. you may also want to call microsofts support line at 1-800-4myxbox and see what they say.
