The problem isnt with the game mate its with the disc drive. See, when this happens the laser lens is not reading the center of the disc (That silver inner disc) where all the data is. So it reads outside giving you either the unreadable disc error, or the "Open tray" message and not even reading that a disc is there. You need to send it in to microsoft to fix this problem, get your Disc tray fixed at any retailer that is qualified to do so (Or, if you wish to void your warrenty you can do it at anyone who can even if he isnt qualified)
Or, you can search youtube to learn how to do some of the tricks to get your xbox to atleast last longer untill you find a permenant solution.
Oh and, for some reason, i find removing the face plate helpful for a while, like a temporary solution. Works sometimes, might be coincedence but it wouldnt hurt to try.

Well the same thing happened to me but only on the game Bad company and it only happens on certian maps. I dont know what to do. It might be the game or the disc reader in the Xbox might be screwed up????????

The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.
