Disc suddenly not reading.

My xbox suddenly stopped reading my Madden disc. Last night it worked completely fine and I when I was done I turned off my xbox. Today when I turned my 360 on it started to make a weird clicking noise when the disc spun up and wouldn't read, there was just the open tray box. I tried multiple other games and they all worked fine. I used my disc repairer/cleaner on it to see if it was just dingy, but still no progress. I don't know what happened to my disc over one night as it stayed in the xbox. There are no large scratches or smudges on the disc and I am starting to get frustrated. Any help/info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

It's a Xbox side issue clearly, I am happy for you, you can play all your games while I cannot play ANY. I mean ANY. I have tried about 12 of my games all come up with either:

Open tray

Unrecognized Disc

Play DVD (when it's a game)

Play Game (no image) > Proceed to start > Error: Unrecongized Disc

The DVD drive won't even play DVD's for god sake.

I tried deleting the installed games, but that didn't work and now I no longer have an option on Dashboard to install any of the games.

I have a feeling it's something to do with piracy of disc, and a piece of code is conflicting with the games disc. They seriously need to fix this, issue. If need be I can send you (MS) a image of all my games, discs, boxes, even manuals as evidance that they are not pirated if this is the case.

/end rant.

On a side note, according to the Skyrim board where someone had this problem attempt to transfer your saves to a USB. One may fail, delete said failed transfer for that game. Clear system cache, restart and try again.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
