The console will need top be sent back to Micrisoft, phone MS Support (number on xbox.com) and they will send someone to pick it up and repair it, it will be a few weeks.... the xbox 360 has a 3 year warranty.

On my xbox, the game cod mw3 wont work. it will work for like 1 min. and say disc unreadable.


Hi the dude,

Is this an issue with any other games you have? If it is then it is likely you will need to clean your laser disc.

However, I am assuming that this is just an issue with a specific game. The disc that you have is likely scratched or faulty to some degree. Replacing this disk is likely the only way you will ever play this game again.

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...


well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

My xbox 360 had 3 rotating lights with a code e 72 i don't know if thats a code but it was there i turned it off then back on works fine


Hi,

The GPU (graphics processing unit) is causing problems with the Xbox.
If this happens again (which it will) and the unit is under 3 years old then Microsoft will repair it for free or give you a new Xbox.

If the Xbox is over 3 years old then you may have to modify the X-clamps to stop this from happening again. That means opening the Xbox up or forcing the unit to overheat. This is a common problem with Xbox's.

There are plenty of youtube tutorials out there which will show you how to do this. As a warning to you the so called "towel trick" will damage the Xbox even more.

I must stress though that if it is under 3 years old sent it back to Microsoft!!!


Regards.

One of my new Xbox games is unreadable. What should I do?


I ahd this problem with COD: MW2 i put the disk in and it came up saying can't read this. So i left it in and thinking nothing of it turned the xbox off went back to it a couple minutes later and it started no problem.

So put the disk in turn the xbox off and back on then it should load the game fine.

Ok, I have recently been having this problem with my Xbox 360. About a month ago, I kept getting Disc is Unreadable error, but it was only for 5 games that I mainly play. I sent this Xbox in and I was sent...


Possibly you tilted or moved the Xbox when a game was running, this will scratch the game beyond repair, or maybe you played the games so long that they were laserburnt, meaning they were burnt from the laser inside of the Xbox that reads it, making they sometimes unplayable, you could try taking the games back to the store and returning them for a new one.

Unreadable disk


Have you tried ejecting the disc but not quitting out the game, wiping the disc and then putting it back in, it should say something like please insert disc, it may work, it does on the ps3

Yeah they do usually put referbished ones in there, if you made sure that your xbox is laying down and that you have blow air into the drive your last thing to do is to send it in, because there is not much to do after that.

My xbox is making a noise when i put in a disc and some times it stops and the game plays but when i eject it it starts again also it sometimes doesnt read the disc and the unreadable disc screen comes up....


Well, with xbox I'm not to sure, but play station2 my son stepped on his and it didn't read the disk that was in it, but it played others, just is very noisy now, you could try contacting microsoft, they are very helpful with refunds -

For more microsoft support you either contact them live through computer, email, or phone,
