If the xbox is still in warranty you should send it back however it sounds like the problem lies with the drive within the console. If you are outside of warranty open it up and find out what drive you have and you could get a replacement.

Why wont my xbox 360 elite read discs? i put disc in and it comes up reading and then open tray


My only questions are does the console say the discs are damaged in any way? and is the console standing up right?
If the discs are scratched in any way then that might cause the 360 to not read the disc and sometimes having a console play the disc upright (example of upright 360) for a long time can cause dis function when trying to play discs, so try playing the discs with the console on its side (side example) These are my solutions to the problem but you can try these: Solution 1 Solution 2

Damaged Games


Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating “Disc Read Error” or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that Xbox owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally required to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.


If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair.
You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!

You can send your discs off to this Disc Repair Service and the discs shall be sent back as good as new.


If this is happening consistently without any knocks or movement of the console, I would contact Microsoft for advice on your games console.

360 wont read disk


First off, try the obvious, clean the lens with an insertable disc cleaner. If that doesn't work, you'll have to crack the case, open the drive and clean it gently with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. If that STILL doesn't work, then you will have to order a new drive or replacement lens. You can find them on Ebay all day long
