Why does it say "Your Xbox can't recognize this disk."?

When Iput any disc into the console game or DVD or audio CD it always comes back saying and I quote "your xbox can't recognize this disc. Make sure it's an Xbox game, DVD movie, or audio CD, also check to see if the disc is dirty or damaged. Remove disk to continue. I hope somebody has the answer to this problem thank you?

snowman2532, most likely a failed laser. I'd suggest that you:

1) Use a commercially available lens cleaner and see if that helps

2) Clean the laser of the drive manually.

3) Finally replace the optical drive. It's simple plug and play and all you need to do this is to follow this guide
