Why wont my xbox elite read the disc? how do i fix the problem?

The first thing to do is to check the game. Are there any surface scratches? Are there deep scratches?

If this is happening with new games, there is a problem with your XBox 360's DVD Drive (or the laser assembly inside of the drive). The following website provides tips and tricks on replacing your XBox 360's laser and/or drive. They also do the work if you're not comfortable with it:

I have broken game MW2 it wont seem to work because of scratches watch should i do

Depends on the scratches. If they are light scratches that are not deep (you cant catch a fingernail in), you can try the paste they sell to "buff"out the scratches. It is kind of like waxing your car. Put it on, let it dry, rub it off.

If the scratches are deep (or if you have the laser burn circle) you need to check in your area for a place that will resurface your cds. Game Crazy used to do it before they closed. Some mom and pop stores have a machine to do it as well.

Worst case scenario is you can trade it in at GameStop. They charge a few bucks off the trade in value and you can put the trade value towards another game.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games

cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

Go buy a DVD Doctor polishing machine. They're not very expensive (maybe 15-25 dollars) and are at most major department stores. They actually do work, unless the scratches are too deep, and it's a very useful thing to have if you have a lot of CDs, games, or movies.

Removing scratches on my game cds

This is an all to often problem. I have had the same problem with my [music] CD's that have skipped tracks. There are many commercial disk cleaners on the market that will get the job done, though since gamecube disks are smaller than typical CD's, you might have to find a special kind of disk cleaner.
Though, you should know that these cleaners will typically only remove surface scratches, and that any deep scratches that may have made data unreadable can not, and will not be fixed.
Here is the typical disk cleaner, at a modest price.
And here is a specific game disk cleaner, at a much higher price.

Scratched disk

hi, this is a common problem with all video games consoles that take cd and the same for music cds.
Most people throw them out when they get scratced and start jumping or in your case wont load the game.
The good news is you can buy a cd polishing kit which polishes the scratches out of the disk.

How it works is you place the cd into a like similar to a cd box but it has three sanding wheels then when you put the disk in you then turn a small handle and the three polishing pads spin round and polish the scratches out of the cd getting the disk to work again.

The problem is finding some where that sells them i know Maplin stock them and sells them but if you have trouble finding anywhere that sells them then the best thing to do is type in in your browser "cd scratch remover" then this will list a load of sites that sell this product.
Its not expensive to buy and its well worth getting one as you can use it loads of times so if in the future you have more problems with scratches then its worth getting one.

Hope this is the help you was looking for i know they work as i use one myself for my ps2 and music cds that get scratched.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any questions.

On any cd the bottom part that the laser reads doesnt have the information and the data on it it is burned into the top part so as you look at a cd and where the writing is on top of the cd if this is scratched and you can see through the disk then it cant be repaired but if its the bottom part that the laser reads from then removing the scratches will solve your problem.
The scratches cause the laser to miss that bit of data thats under the scratch so polishing these out will be the same as having a new cd.
