    Why won't my Xbox 360 read discs?

    A:

    If the console will not read a disc, there is either a problem with the disc itself, or the laser in the Xbox that reads the discs. Fixing a problem with a disc can simply be a case of carefully wiping it down with a clean soft cloth, but a misaligned or damaged laser in the console itself is a more serious problem that may require repairs from a professional.
