Hi there,
This is a hardware problem in older generations of the Xbox 360. What most people seem to believe is that the 360 should stand vertically, but do this and you will be covering the vents which let your 360 breathe. This is why you will see a lot of people bringing up the red ring of death, or people who have had their 360 scratch their DVDs.
My suggestion is to set your 360 horizontally. It's always worked for me and I haven't had a single thing go wrong with my 360.

What causes the xbox 360 to stop playing discs?


It is a 360? or the old school Xbox? Yes! there is an Xbox before the 360. Either your disk drive is bad, or your disk is scratched/dirty.

Bought guitar hero 5 xbox game w/guitar..disk spins and then says unreadable contact support...


Are other games working correctly in your Xbox 360?

Is this a brand new disk? or did you buy used?
if used, check for major scratching on the disk. If scratched heavily you can try to buff out scratches with a lint free cloth, I have also heard that toothpaste could be used for buffing out scratches, but I would only try this as a last resort.

If other games work fine in your Xbox, it's probably the disk. Make sure you have the XBOX version of the game (and didnt accidentally grab the PS3 game instead or something)

If it is the right version of the game and brand new and not working, call Activision and tell them you have a bad disk, if it's brand new I can't see how they wouldn't replace it. Or just return it to the store.

Game will not work


Check back side of disk or any scratches or dirt, wipe of game with soft damp cloth. Please know if there are too many scratches or if the scratches are too deep, then replacement is be required. If there are no scratches or dirt, try other Xbox 360 games to for sure verify that it is the game that is the problem and not the Xbox 360. If the game is at fault and the Xbox 360 can play other games, and there are no scratches or dirt, then it’s a faulty disk, and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

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.

New XBox 360 putting scratch in games


the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.

That normally means that the disk is gettgin scratched is your xbox laying down or standing up? If its standing up and is bunped slightly the disk can shift and get scratched. Check your games for scratch rings around them.
