    My xbox 360 reads only certain disks. but some of my favorite games the console wont read them it loads them up about half way then says that the disk is unreadable. if theres a fix please tell me about it.

    Well first you have to look if the disc is dirty or damaged.(Captain Obvious)!

    If that doesnt work then you might have hurt the disk tray did you ever pop it out with a paper clip or something if so that might be your problem and you would need to send it in to be repaired.

    You know that happens to me alot too but only with certian games. mostly GH3, but my disk is spotless. I solved it by installing the game to my HDD.

    Yeh about that installing on your HD its kinda pointless you need the disk to start up anyway.

    If you were paying attention, he said that it loads and plays but half way through it says its unreadable, and if you know how the install to HDD thing works, you would know that yes, you need the disk , but it only scans the security checks to make sure its the game you are trying to play from the HDD is the same game that is currently in your dvd drive. As an example, my copy of halo 3 recently cracked nearly in half but remained intact around the center, which is where the drive starts to read the disk from, so i went to my local video store, rented halo 3 , copied it to my HDD and poped in my cracked disk and it played fine because it was able to get the necisary info from the disk to allow the game to play frome the HDD.

    Cant argue with a drunk man, but he could have opened the drive witha paperclip and the bottom my friend had done this to me before and I had my 360 repaired.
