How to fix the Disc not reading Problem?

I know there has been a few threads about this problem but I thought it would be Good to have a thread Listing Most of the Fixes there are instead of a few fixes in each Thread, Here is a list of Things that have worked to fix this problem with my xbox360 as its been messing Up about 5 times a day Recently and also starting to Do it in the middle of a game freezing the game then telling me there is no disc in the disc tray. Anyone who don’t know what the Disc not reading problem is...

It’s when you put a Disc into the disc tray of your xbox360 It reads for a few seconds then Acts as if you put Nothing inside the disc tray.


- Tap A on the dashboard to open and close the disc tray.
- While the disc tray is open gently move it around.
- Hit the xbox360 (Not too hard and not too lightly)
- Blow inside disc Tray (Not 100% Sure if this works its just started working a few times after i have done it but I once read Its not good to blow inside the disc tray)
- Unplug your Xbox and take it for a walk, When mine broke at first i tried to get my money back as it only had a week Left until I couldn’t take it back for free, After putting it in a bag and Taking it to the shop they Tested it and it worked fine, Got it back home and it worked fine for about 2-3 months.


- Switch it off and switch it back on again
- Take disc out put nothing in and close disc tray, Then opening and putting disc back in

That is all I have atm, If anyone else who has had the problem and fixed The xbox360 Could they please post How they fixed it and it will be added to the List to help others and myself.

the classic "switch it off and switch it back on again" 5 mins later sort of works, i did that for my Assassin's Creed II and after doing it a few time it finally came up "play ACII" on the screen.(tbf that was dodgy disc...)
Also, try taking the disc out, putting nothing in, closing it, and then retrying your disc. That worked once for me aswell again with ACII

This problem seems to be pretty erractic. my 360 will randomly do it and then work fine for agggesss...

I think its alot to do with the quality of the disc's them selves.
I know after speaking to someone that worked for Turn 10 that the 1st batch of forza 2 was done on low grade discs(i went through 3 copies)
But generally its usually just a dirty scratches disc or the drive on its way out thats the problem.

Ofcourse who doesnt?

Like i said i was just Taking it to the shops and it worked for ages, Im guessing its the Dust that was in it went away with putting it in a bag walking it to the shops then setting it up there and all.

Mines got really bad today and i Have to constantly try fix it every time i switch game. Tempted to buy a New Xbox360 but dont feel so great about giving 100 - 250 To Microsoft
