Lately my 360 is getting constant disc unreadable errors. It started happening a lot with GTA IV, maybe every 60 to 90 minutes or so, but lately it seems to be getting worse. I finally gave up on playing LEGO Indiana Jones and sent it back to Gamefly because it kept getting an error right before the end of the level (and that game only allows saves between levels, so it was pretty frustrating).
I don't remember the exact language, but it's something like: "This disc is unreadable. It may be dirty or scratched." But I don't think the disc is the problem because it happens to every disc, and none of them look particularly scratched. Usually it plays for a while then I hear the way the disc drive spins change a bit, and soon after it fails.
It would cost like $100 to send it to Microsoft for repair, and almost $300 for a new console. However, if I wait until Fall, presumably I could use the "copy game to hard drive" feature to avoid this problem. But do I want to wait that long? Or start getting new games for my PS3 instead? PS3 is fine but playing new games without achievements doesn't sound like as much fun...
Anybody have any suggestions / ideas?
The Xbox 360 is the second game console produced by Microsoft Corporation and is the successor to the original Xbox.
