If your xbox says (unplayable disc) and no disc plays including dvd, mp3, etc. then you do have a fatal hardware flaw in the disc drive. This should be covered under the new 3 year extended warranty. This problem is rumored to be caused by two things,1 cheap disc drives, 2 live update which was trying to ban modded 360s for xbox live friendly fired on alot of innocent disc drives with bad firmware.....but this should be covered, give em a call

It may be a problem with the laser or the lens. If the DVDs work on another player, try first to have the lens cleaned. You may use a lens cleaner with cleaning solution for this one. If that does not work, you have to inspect the disc drive closely and check for physical damages on the circuit like burnt parts or leaking capacitors. Inspect the lens as well.
yea i had that to when i just bought mine and i had a brand new one but after i started playin it more it didnt really pop up no more i guess it needed some light scratches try rubbing some bounty on it..
i have the same promblem. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt, however aproximately 2 months ago thsi promblem occured and i took my xbox apart and found a large amount of dog and lint hair(particularly because of my 3 dogs). Nevertheless i cleaned the hair out and it worked for a good two months before overheating last night while playing fable 2.
Sounds like an electrical short in xboxs usb port. check the brick if it has a red light you need a new brick. if not, try unplug the controller from the console and remove the faceplate and try turn it on. sorry if i cant be more help. alex
try blowing the air holes with a compress air cans. or take it apart and clean the inside. dust can build up with 3 months of playing depends on your area if you have pets or smokers in the area, dust comes from all sorts.
so try keeping your XBOX360 cooled as possible and keep it cleaned.
i use a air compressor when cleaning mine i try to clean it like every 3-4 months depending on how much I play it.
So keep it clean also red lights could mean no video device connected too, so check your video / audio connector.
Hey Tafari, It's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made between a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.
All you gotta do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping)
They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 with 1 month of xbox live for free.
Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.
-. Use a standard CD/DVD Cleaner, they look like a normal CD but with two miniature brushes on them. This will only clean the lens. Sometimes this is all you need to be up and running.
-Clean the lens and mirror manually
-Adjust the Potentiometer (pot) on the laser.
you do nto have to see dust lens might be dirty from reguler use of teh dvd and or cd of games
