Seems my disc drive is going out.

My 360 is saying the disc is unrecognizable. I've cleaned the laser a couple times now in the past few months and that's helped but i don't see that working much longer. Is there a trick or cheap solution to my problem?

There are a lot of semi-permanent fixes, most of which involve putting something heavy on the console. That fixes the problem for some people. Others have actually opened the console to fix the problem, but I don't know what that entails.

You could also grin and bear it... It might take 20-50 tries, but the disc will read eventually. Once the 360 first starts reading a disc, you're good until you open the drive again. That's what I did, just waited the problem out, and the problem magically fixed itself after a month or two. Crazy, huh? Your results may vary, though, I'm the only person I've ever heard of who had the patience to put up with the crappy disc drive for that long.
