Go to your local store and ask if they have a 'disk clean wizard' or some similar equipment they can use to clean of a layer of the disk. Hopefully, this will cost little. It doesn't have a 100% chance of working however

My xbox 360, has a problem i put in a new clean disk(game) into the xbox . it is a xbox 360 game and every time i put in a new clean disk the xbox says (open tray)

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out.

The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

If you click into the following U.S. based website, you can find more information about this issue, the parts to fix it yourself and you can also send your XBox 360 to them to have it repaired:

My xbox 360 cannot always read the disk..what causes this

Make sure the xbox is on a stable platform - there is an issue with laser burn - any instability can cause the laser to touch the disk. Could be you have been lucky not to lose any disks so far.
Please let me know if this helps.

Since my xbox 360 has been repaired it won't play copied dvd's

your drive is modded with special firmware(software). What happens eventually is the laser is going out on the DVD-drive. When a DVD is burned on a computer it is not as readable as a DVD is that is produced in large factories that Microsoft use to make 360 games. So you should be able to play 360 games you buy fine and some burned games but not all of them. Replacing the laser is hard. A temporary solution would be to burn your games at a slow speed like 2.4x or even 1x.

My MW2 got laser burn PLEASE HELP

Laser burn is particularly nasty so common household disc cleaners won't do the job. GAME stores usually have an industrial strength disk cleaner which only costs £3 to repair discs. There is no guarantee any amount of disc repair will work, as laser burn can be fatal on discs, but this is your best bet. To avoid laser burn, lay your console flat (not standing up) and make sure its on a level and sturdy surface. Any vibration through the console can cause the laser to over-focus, and then you'll get burn.

Disc scratching from xbox 360

A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “ring of death marks”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any scratches or laser burn on discs. XBOX laser burn discs can be fixed!!!

For further help on XBOX & XBOX 360 disc repairs, visit: Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.

If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair. Check your garauntee and contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!!
