Gta 5

Disks are brand new out of box and they are unrecognizable on my 360! I had to swap hard drives with my son's 360 just to start playing it.When everything was going smoothly. I decided I would return my hard drive to my console. Game was unrecognizable. So I cycled the disc tray,and the game started.Wait there is more about half way through the prologue an in game error popped up saying something about the hard drive then restarted the game then it froze up. Now the disc is unreadable again. It is a viscous cycle that is aggravating me to no end. I just want to say for the record if Xbox does nothing about addressing their disc drive problem that has so many xbox360 owners frustrated, then I am afraid that they will not have my continued support and have spent my last 60 dollars on their products.Furthermore I will also not be buying an Xbox one for that same reason.Please keep in mind I have been buying their product since the original Xbox and I have been a gold member since the Xbox 360 came out, I have also beta tested numerous games as well as the Kinect. I have spent more than twelve hundred dollars on consoles suffered the red ring of death four times.So you could say I was a large supporter of these products. Alas I fear our relationship is coming to an end.

my discs are unreadable as well. this is absurd. i have made certain the discs GTA and other games read properly on both my and other systems, my xbox and HDD both function perfectly. I have ample space.

Ever since halo 4 came out, i have been aghast at how unfair and cheapened gaming on live has become. Microsoft bows to the almighty dollar, the best advice ive gotten all day was to 'just buy a new system or send it in'. Like i have that kind of money? $1-300???  

I have babied my 360, i want a little bit of help from microsoft; not another charge to my bank account.

It seems to be a common problem, as I recently helped someone and he had the same problem, maybe there is a faulty batch of discs going round.

No I am playing the game now on my son's console nothing wrong with the discs it is the disc drive in the 360. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news all xbox 360's will suffer the same fate in time.

You need 8 free gigs before installing to play game. Also don't install the play disc. That should help.

If this only occurs with GTA V (aka: you can play other xbox 360 games just fine). I would suggest returning the discs and exchanging for replacement ones, due to the faultiness of the discs.

Hey I would try and troubleshoot disc read issues here: support.xbox.com/.../disc-drive-solution

If the error only occurs with your GTA V discs I would return them and ask for a replacement.

Guess we are not paying attention it is a disc drive issue. NOT a disc issue. The same issue I have had on all my consoles.

Hey there POLLUX,

Sorry to hear you're been having issues with your GTA.

Just to make sure that I completely understand what's happening:

  1. Your discs in your console with your hard drive in gives you a "disc unreadable error"
  2. Your discs in your console with your son's hard drive works fine
  3. Your discs in your son's console with his hard drive works fine



It's possible that there is a disc drive failure in your console, but there are a few questions that will help us make doubly sure:

  • Do your discs in your son's console with your hard drive work?
  • Do other games beside GTA 5 give the disc unreadable error?
  • Have you tried removing all accessories (including hard drive) from your console and loading in the Play Disc?
    • I know this won't play but it will let us see if you still get the unreadable error without your HDD.


Please let us know if I've understood correctly and the answer to those questions and we'll work from there.

No it is my hard drive and game disc. The only thing that is being swapped is the consoles. It is my console that is having issues. It´s not the disc nor Is it the hard drive.
