My xbox just started giving me this error on my games. For Halo 4 I just have to open and close the tray, it will read it on the second try 90% of the time. For battlefield 3 it used to take around 5-10 tries to get it to work.. I tried for about 15 min yesterday til I finally gave up. The only other game it will read is Fifa.
All my other games either get the "Unrecognized disc" error OR they will show up as DVD's, so when I hit "Play DVD" it just gives me the xbox logo.
I took my XBOX apart yesterday and cleaned the laser and that didn't help.
I've had this 360 since the very first day they were launched. I'm sure it's on it's way out and I'm suprised it's lasted me this long.. but have any of you had this error and fixed it without replacing your laser or disk drive? If I have to replace any parts I'm just gonna buy a new one. Thanks
