First of all disconnect everything except for HDMI and power (disconnect the hard drive too if you have one). Power the console on and try out the burned games. Are those burned games known to be working before? Were you experiencing this recently? Try some other games to see if you get the issue. Maybe try cleaning your laser and disc drive.

It could be your disk drive. Open up your console clean it, repaste it (if you want to) then disconnect the disk drive and reconnect it. It could of maybe somehow disconnected or it has bad contact. And as a final measure open up the disk drive and try cleaning it too. Clean the laser because it could be having bad reads too. Then put it back together. If nothing else works and you really want to be able to play the game normally order a new disk drive and flash it so it works with your 360. Make sure you have the DVD key to do that.

It could also be the CDs you used just not working well with the 360 so try buying a new pack from your nearest dollar store or Walmart.

Also if nothing else works and you don't want to replace the disc drive then buy a new laser or salvage one. Make sure it's the correct laser or else you may experience issues. Also try re-flashing the disc drive if possible.
