XBox 360 Slim Clean Disk Error

Hi Folks,

Recently I've notice that I get the clean disk error alot now when playing brand new games. I've only had this console for about 6 months. It does it with almost every game. I am going to take it back to the shop and have it exchanged or returned to Microsoft but before I do can anyone tell me if there is a way to fix it? If not then can anyone tell me a way to backup my saved games on the HDD because I really don't fancy playing them from the beginning again? Also can I use a standard lens cleaner in the Xbox or does it have to be Xbox specific if there is one?

Thanks.

Here, take a look at this guide for your disc read issue.

As for backing up save files, I suggest using a USB device configured for use with Xbox 360. You can find out how to set that up here.

if you use some compressed air to blow in the cd drive, you know the can of air for cleaning inside computers .. worth a try, might just be some dust stuck to the optical lens
