Disc reading troubles

My xbox wont read any of my discs, when I put a disc in, it makes noises and then says open tray, after a few times, it will say unrecognisable disc but none of my game will actually load up, it sometimes makes the noise that usually happens when a game is loading up but will then say open tray/unrecognisable disc, anything I can do to fix this without having to spend loads of money?

Sorry to tell you, but i think your xbox disc reader is broken. You can request a repair here: support.xbox.com/.../repair-process

Or if you are still in shop waranty go to the shop and ask a new console. (Dont forget to transfer your data!)

you could possibly have something inside your Xbox on the lens that reads your games, you can purchase lens cleaners quite cheaply try this before you assume your disc reader is broken, i could save you money.

Have you cleaned your games lately? because I share my games with my children I make it a point to clean them about once a week. Only use water and a soft cloth (no paper towels!) and don't wipe them in a circular pattern (wipe out from the center). One other question-any chance your discs are cracked? Even tiny cracks can make a disc unreadable.

Most likely silentkill is right and your disc reader is busted. Good Luck.
