That message can mean two things to consider.(1) If you trying to play a backup(copy) of the game and your box is not flashed then it will show that (2) if you only using original games then it can mean either your disc is damaged ,has a few scratches on it therefore the laser cannot read the data properly. it could also mean that your laser is dying .this happens when you get into the habit of playing scratched media .it shortens the life of your laser. in the case where you trying to play a copied disc,then it is either a cheap media disc or scratched or incorrectly burned.use image burn and make an iso of the game and burn it at no faster than 4 speed.

SOURCE: fifa 09 football problem. telling me to clean disc

One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:
a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
OR
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

How do I fix my xbox game the xbox keeps saying unreadable disc clean with a soft cloth and restart the console.


If you get the error with just one game, but not others, unfortunately it is likely damage to the disc. If it is under warranty, or if you bought it at a return-friendly place, maybe you can get a replacement. If the system is giving you this error with several games, it is likely the disc reader in your Xbox. The Xbox 360 has a well-known issue with DVD drive failure over time. If your system is still under warranty, or sometimes even if not (because this was such a big problem for Xbox), Microsoft may repair it. Try calling them and patiently discussing it. If it is not under warranty, and you are good with repair work, try this: http://hardandsoftgaming.wordpress.com/2011/03/12/replacing-a-faulty-xbox-360-dvd-drive-firmware-flash-or-circuit-board-transplant/

When I put may kinect game in the xbox it says the disc is unreadable, then it says to clean disc with a soft cloth and restart the console. I did that several times and it still wont work. What should i...


If the disc has a lot of scratches then it is the fault of the disc. The Xbox360 is known to scratch up discs so you can either buy a new copy of the game or follow the video in the link below. http://www.ehow.com/video_4774663_repair-xbox-360-game-discs.html
If the disc is fine then the laser of the Xbox360 that reads the discs may have issues. If that is the case then you will need to send it to Microsoft to repair for a fee or find someone who knows how to take apart and fix a 360.

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 Disc says reading and then open tray


The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.
