The cause of the E74 Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error messages in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling the console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan etc. But as your Xbox already have E74 Problem, You can either send your Xbox to Microsoft for repair ( just for your information Microsoft is no longer providing Extended warranty for E74 Problem), Microsoft generally takes 3-4 weeks to fix the problem. If you can't wait for a month (I know most XBox gamers can not wait without their favourite Gaming device), You can also fix E74 Problem yourself and that too within an hour without any technical knowledge. I would suggest you to check out the DIY Xbox Fix Guide for more information.

Heres the problem
Section 4 is flashing red
- Hardware Failure
Specifically


E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known
to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected
directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

If changing the cable doesnt work then you will need to get it fixed by Microsoft

Check the documentation that came with your Xbox 360 for contact information.

Yep, this is the red light error and it is caused by overheating on the main chips - you can stop this by using a good repair guide or by sending it in for a fix.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is only on the XBOX 360, PS3, and PC. It is not available for the first XBOX console.
That is why it will not read the disc.
