disc read errors

very recently, my xbox has been incorrect in reading the games i try to play. at start up, it will say the disc is a multimedia disc or a dvd, even though its a game in the tray. opening and closing it once fixes the issue, but i was wondering if its a sign of bad things to come considering ive had freezes. mostly the freezes have been with battlefield 3 and im sure im not the only one with that game, but with other games too (moh: warfigher and farcry 3). what could this be, and how would i fix it if it becomes worse? any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi Hungry0rphans,

 

In the disc troubleshooting Guide there will be described how to remove your HDD. Have you tried that while using another storage Device?

If yes, there's proberly a hardware failure within your Xbox. You also said you have some issues with Freezing.

Try the steps that are been described in this section of Console Freezing.

Hello HungaryOrphans there are sticky posts in this forum for Troubleshooting disc read errors and a section on console freezing, But there is an other option which might help you? You could try to hoover the fan area and vents around the console this keeps it free of dust that could block ventillation. If you are going too try this method out always use the lowest setting on your hoover and have your xbox switched off when doing this. I had the same problem as you and was given this tip by another xbox buddy this worked for me i hope it works for you.
