You either got a bad laser in your console, or the disc is scratched.
If only Microsoft could give us some informative error messages so we easily could see what's causing your problems...

It could be the laser because my 360 is 4 and a half years old and it has had disc read problems recently.

Do other discs work fine? If so, get a new disc. (I would think a used copy would be cheap.) You could also try to get the disc polished/restored from a local shop.

If other games don't work, it is probably the drive. Look into console repair places, sending to Microsoft to fix, or buying a new console.

Other than the above, there is no tricks to fix either disc or disc drive issues.

Every error comes with a code at the top of the error box, google those codes and you find out exactly what the problem is.

Most games work fine, all games usually don't start up due to unreadable disc but open and closing the tray fixs that.

A few games slow down mainly fifa on menusand crysis 3 sometimes randomly skips frames in cutscenes.
