Xbox 360 - Error message: Attempting to read media


My Xbox won't read game discs. Cleaning the lens won't solve this issue. The following message is displayed and then nothing happens:
  • "Attempting to read media"


  • On you Xbox go to Settings.
  • Then select Memory.
  • Highlight any storage device and press "Y".
  • Do not select "A".
  • Select "Clear System Cache".
  • Perform Maintenance, click "Yes".
  • Try your game again.
