Why is my Xbox not reading game disks?

My Xbox has become very shakey when it comes to game disks lately. Some disks work, others don't, but the ones that do work stop working in the middle of a game. Is there any way I can fix this, or is the Xbox just very sensitive to tiny scratches?

Two suggestions, clean the disks and clean the optical lens on the disk drive.

Eliminate as many scratches and smudges on the disk itself, the little disk cleaning kits at BestBuy and RadioShack and what not actually do some decent work (at least in my experience) but obviously won't clean severe scratches.

Cleaning the optical lens is a little trickier. I would start with the first easy option, open up the CD tray w/o a cd in it and give the insides a good blast with compressed air. Have the Xbox upside down or the CD tray pointing down...anything to make sure the dust doesn't just resettle on your lens.

If that doesnt work, you may want to try digging deeper into the CD drive itself, but let's see if this works first! Let us know.

My xbox was the first version, with the thompson drive in it. Every game works fine except for dead or alive. I tried the game in someone elses xbox and it works, so I know the cd itself is fine (looks brand new too).

I'm wondering if gamemakers who are developing on one of the newer version of original xbox used samsung/etc drives, but never the thompson drive. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause a problem.

Idk if this post is still relevant to anyone out there but my Xbox has a Thompson tray and it just stopped reading the discs after I tried putting a dvd in.

Similar problem here with a Thompson drive. Plays music CD ok. Owner furnished me a game disk that isn't recognized so am working on that. Am going to try a movie DVD to see if that works. I know a blu-ray movie (so far) isn't recognized. Am also ordering another game disk to see if it will work. I changed the laser resistance from ~1400 ohms down to ~1000 ohms and that didn't help. Am thinking about replacing the Thompson with either a Samsung or preferably a Philips drive.

Actually I got it working after repeated tries. I opened it up and just copied YouTube and cleaned it out put it back together. But I believe the issue still is the age and condition and disc drive goes bad performing which applies to reading it live as it plays. Any little hiccup and it'll freeze or go black. So I save my level when I can but I may take it to GAMES store Oshawa to repair it one day when tech is in they may have spare parts or replacement disc drive (you always keep your part like at computer store) just in case. Keep your hard drive save file etc. Which is built in but you can sub it out or actually copy it to computer maybe if u that techie
