Please consult to xbox technician.there is nothing you can do because your laser or lens which read your disc probably either dirty or damages...if it is dirty, i suggest you to buy disc that has a tiny brush attach onto that disc...but if it damages,well............nothing u can do other than send it for service...

Mmy x box 360 cant read my game what should i do

This is a common problem with old xbox 360 consoles.If your console is still under warranty, try getting a replacement by visiting the support website at xbox.com/support.

If you are no longer covered by insurance you can do an old trick I used to do with my old xbox 360.
Open the disc tray and insert the disc, as soon as you insert the disc in the console, hit your xbox on the top surface a few times, around 3, by this I mean slap it. it might take a few tries but it worked me.

However, if you are having problems with a specific disc, you should try cleaning the disc with a clean cloth. If that doesn't work, you can borrow the same game from a friend or try to obtain a temporary copy. Download the game to your hard drive and insert the original game, it should work flawlessly.

My xbox keeps saying disc unreadable when i am half way in race i can get on the menu fine but as soon as i start a race it says unreadable disc what shall i do

Sounds like a bad spot on the disc. Or, it could be the drive itself.
On the original xbox I had problems with the optical reader doing this same thing.
Is it only the one game doing it? Try another game on your box, and try your disc on a different box if you can.

Does not recognize an xbox 360 disc : error message says to "...insert disc into an xbox 360..."

OK, this is a regular problem with x-box. Call 800 587 1102. It is their number for support. If it is under a year old they will fix it for free. YOu have to ship it to them. Takes 3-4 weeks.

Xbox wont recognize disc

Hey,

That's a laser issue. Your laser has gone bad and/or the whole DVD drive. To fix this problem it has to be opened up.


If you need help with that, update your question :)

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console

The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?
