Has anyone had that problem?
Every time i put a DVD in, it comes up with this message, i know for certain that it isn't the disk, as I keep them in great condition, any advice would be apppreciated.

This has happened to me as well, so I took my Xbox to my local electronics store and they opened it up, and found dust and dirt on the lens that reads the disks.
(A word of warning - The guy in my electronics shop said that you lose your guarantee if you open it up.)

I could put it on a memory card, in small doses, and put my data on a friends xbox. But'll take ages...

I might do get a new one. However, it's second hand, so I won't get any warranty.

A similar problem happened with my PS2. I got a new one.

Cheers GAME!

I would think so, as long as it's still under guarantee. I would only worry about it though if it starts doing it all the time with every disc. My new Xbox does it every now and then.
