Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

4 Answers

Disc unreadable Well, as the title says, the disc is unreadable. I just bought this new game called Battlefield: Bad Company, and it just gave me this message yesterday and today. I've already returned it to the BestBuy I bought it from, and the gave me another copy. But ever since I got my Xbox 360 it sounds like it's hot. It makes a real loud sound whenever I insert a game in. Also this message never popped up when I played Halo 3. Another thing I saw interesting was that when I bought the game the disc was clear, no scratches. Then when the disc unreadable notic popped up on my Xbox, and I took it out the game had scratches all over it. And this was the day after I got it. So if you can help me it would be greatly appreciated. :]

Know what? I've had your same problem... Bought BF:BC, and it'll tell me that it's an un-readable disk, or says "Play DVD"... 
I've also already returned the game once, for another copy and there's no positive changes.
The rest on my games work, just not BF:BC.

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.

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...


well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

Xbox will not read the disc . i put the disc in and it says reading disc then it goes back to saying open tray and does not play the disc.


Problem is simple... disc is unreadable... solution is take the game back from where you bought it, and tell them the problem... they should give you a new copy.

None of my games are working, they all say unreadable disc. I bought a new game to see if it was the xbox and it said unreadable disc as well what do i do?


# Turn console off and then on. # Clean the disc and examine it for flaws or scratches. # If this behavior occurs with one or two discs, search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for the specific game title(s). If you find a known problem, follow the information outlined in the article. # Delete the appropriate saved games. See Note 1. Copy a saved game to a Memory Unit (MU) if you have one available. # Try three other games, and then try the original game again. # Try the game on another console if possible. # Replace the disc at retailer. # Repair the console Note 1 If a saved game file is corrupted, it can produce a disk error message in that game, particularly when the game starts. You can resolve this issue by deleting all saved game files for the affected game from the Xbox hard disk. This method is effective approximately twenty-five percent of the time. If you experience this disk error message with more than two games, this procedure will likely not resolve the issue. Another trick to try is to turn your console so its vertical( sometimes works)

Madden 08 is unreadable with my hard drive connected


Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.
