I used to think firmware but that is a very rare case. try getting a new laser, if that doesn't work swap the motor that spins the disc around but mark where the screws are before you remove them. good luck!

The xbox console will not play certain games it comes up disc unreadable, need to clean. Have cleaned the disc but it still will not play. Have followed the instructions on the screen when they appear. ...


I would recommend a CD/DVD Head Cleaner. You can get them from your local computer shop. It's a DVD that cleans the laser inside the DVD drive. Highly recommended for this problem.

Disc unreadable even with new discs, tried putting console flat instead of upright still doesn't work.A game can be playing then stops and says disc unreadable!


Unreadable disk error happens because the sensors on the DVD drive are overheating, it is not normally because the drive is faulty.

You need to stop this heat build up to be able to play again. You can do this yourself or send it in

Unreadable disc


Sounds like the Xbox is trying to find a piece of data that it need to go further and because of a dirty or scratched disk, it can't find it. If you want to verify whether it's your disk or your Xbox, go to your local game rental store and rent a copy of the same game to see if you have the same problem.
