I have a 360s console that when I boot it up and put a disc in, the disc is read as unreadable. Doesn't matter what disc I put in, the disc is still unreadable. After many attempts at troubleshooting the issue via Xbox Support's official Disc Drive Solution and many calls and emails to Xbox Support, I have noticed that there's a fix that is actually pretty irritating.
My console needs to have the disc drive warm up. It seems that installed Arcade games and other installed games work fine from the HD but reading a disc in the drive is impossible until about 10-15 minutes of the console being on. This is EXTREMELY frustrating, as the console should be able to read the disc after booting up. I'm not sure what the cause is of this, but I would love to know. Does anyone have an answer to this?
