My xbox keeps saying the disc is unreadable half way through games


the disc is either scratched too much
or
the xbox dvd lense is dirty

if other discs work then it is that specific disk

try cleaning the disc with a micro fibre cloth
start on the inside and rub outwards towards the edge of the disc

you can also buy a lense cleaning kit, you put a solution on a disc and put it in the drive
it should help to clean the laser

goodluck

My disk is unreadable


Hi there,

Try a different disc. The reason I say this is because if you try a different disc and it's still unreadable, then you have a problem with the laser lens inside your 360 and it needs to be cleaned. This voids the warranty so you aren't going to find any advice from Microsoft on how to do this. If you Google "Cleaning the Xbox 360 Lens", you will come across a ton of articles and YouTube videos on cleaning the lens.

However, if the other disc works then the problem is with the disc itself. It may be dirty or it may be cracked. If it's dirty, take some rubbing alcohol and a soft piece of cotton material to clean the disc.

Hope this helps.

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.

Unreadable disk at start up


Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Unreadable Disc . Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

XBOX 360 ASSESINS CREED UNREADABLE DISK


I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
