    The Xbox 360 console cannot read the disc correctly. This can happen for any of the following reasons:




    The disc is dirty or damaged


    The disc is from a different country or region than the console


    Non-disc issues

The XBOX systems depending on the one you bought has one of 3 possible DVD Drives in the system. Thomson, Phillps and Toshiba. The Thomson drive is one of the worst drives to have as it has a high rate of failure. It could be the possibility of your DVD Drive is starting to fail or having problems with some games.

The other possibility is that your XBOX is starting to overheat which can cause problems reading discs.

Lastly, it could simply be there may be a problem on the disc your XBOX picks up and your brother's doesnt. Try cleaning your disc in a circular motion or cleaning with a non-abrassive cloth from the inside of the disc outward.

If the problem persists, find out about having your XBOX serviced.

If the disc works on other machines its your disc drive

if you got warranty USE IT,
or you can trade it in and get a 360, one realese of the xbox had a hardware issue (disc drive) which microsoft replaces's you can contact microsoft to see in you fall in this catagory..

if not repairs are straight foward,
1.) open the xbox up
2.) remove the disc drive
3.) purchase a replacement
4.) put it in
5.) thats it

the drive is held in place by some screwas and a cable.. It wont take brain surgery to replace it

that may help you

    since the tracks are very small and needs fine laser to be shot over the disc to read the disc

    and thus very small dust particles will cause the lens unable to read the disc.

    please dont forget to accept the solution if you are OK with it.

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

Xbox not reading Fifa 10 game


Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
