dont listen to the other plugs I work for microsoft. throw your xbox off the 20th floor of an apartment building, make sure it makes 10 360s on the way down or else this method will fail. If it breaks its not my fault, blame microsoft!!!!!!

I went straight to Microsoft xbox website. Their solution worked for us when our xbox would not play discs. 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". Next try your game to see if it works. When you play your games, data will be restored. Go to Microsoft XBOX troubleshooting if you have problems.
Just tried this, worked straight away :)
Thank you
i have been dealing with the same problem for a long time. But I found a fix!!! (at least for me)
Both, however, require you to open your xbox dvd drive which will void any warranties you have.
you need to:

1. clean dvd lens carefully with q-tip and rubbing alcohol.

2. lube rail that dvd laser slides on, and the bronze track that the motor turns.
(i used gun oil but any good lube will work. DO NOT USE WD-40!!! or any spray like it)

This worked for me, if you try it I hope it works.
Thank you
i replased my xbox lazer and it is still onlyreading the cleaner cd
Thank you
the only thing you can do is get a new disk drive this is hapenning to my xbox right now. (or get a new laser or clean your laser with a soft cloth

Thank you
Then clean your lense aswell
Thank you
well I would recommend you ring up where you got it from like if you got it from some shop like a asda or something like that to see if they can recommend anything for you or ring up microsoft to see if your warranty is still valid because they give you a free 1 year warranty so if you haven't had it for 1 year send it back and they will repair it or send you a replacement thats how I did mine and its worked fine ever since
Thank you
hay happened to me you need to buy hard drive disk scleener like 10 $
