Rated 10 out of 10 by oDarkAngel I really should've tried this a long time ago!!
The reviews for this particular product were what prompted me to actually buy it, so I just wanted to share my experience for anyone who is having trouble with their xbox not recognizing discs. It usually takes me up to an hour to get my game loaded, keep getting the open tray error, and this is the THIRD Xbox that I've had this start happening to. I've already replaced my sons, and mine. Now again, another xbox that won't read the discs, so naturally I'm getting really frustrated at this point. My roommate (who's sick of listening to me yell at my xbox) suggested I try this, that it had good reviews blah blah. I figured it couldn't hurt, so after 30 tries to get it to read the disc, as usual, I went thru the cleaning process 3 times just hoping..... then inserted my game, and it loaded FIRST TRY!! Wow, I really wish I would've thought to try this a long long time ago lol.
Rated 10 out of 10 by hetdogm Would not play games like C.O.D and GTA Does now
(Before i had this product my old Xbox 360 arcade system(white Xbox) would make a duna duna screech sound and when i put the disc in and would either say unrecognizable disc, disc error or, i would select play game and it would say can not read disc.)Amazing product overall. I purchased this because i received a Gamestop gift card as a holiday present and i thought why buy a game if it doesn't even read or play them and that i might as well try. So i purchased it came home popped it in chose the settings and it said i was done. Not expecting it to work i put in Call Of Duty Ghosts and this time it made one duna sound and it played the game very clearly. So a definite buy for those experiencing problems with disc errors and a save of having to buy a new expensive console

I've been getting the open tray error more and more frequently so I tried to find an alternative to shipping my 360 to Microsoft for maintenance or opening it up myself. I tried several of the infamous YouTube quick fixes and none worked, so i figured I'd try the lens cleaner solution. I couldn't see any solid reviews for the disc (most either hated it or fawned over it) so I was skeptical. But for 15 dollars its definitely worth trying, worked for me (all my problem discs now read immediatley) but it really depends on on the condition of your console. It won't fix disc drive issues but it helps clean the laser and might even help allignment. And despite what some say it doesn't harm your 360, if you think so then it was probably past the point of lens repair anyway.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Dave87 Fixed my open tray issue!!
When i installed gta 5 data to the hard drive afterwards my disc drive stop reading. I went on youtube and saw some tricks and the banging on the xbox worked. I wanted to get something more permanent and saw this and mixed reviews and thought before i took my xbox apart. A cheap 15 solution would be easier. I had to tap my xbox to read the cleaning disc just like i was able to get other discs to read and after cleaning my xbox works perfectly and reading discs without a hitch! I also shot some compressed air into the console and cleaned a lot of dust out. So Hopefully my xbox will last awhile longer before upgrading! Thank you reviewer who banged his xbox and tried this and confirmed it working!! :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by grayson1103 Fixed "Open Tray" Disc Reading Error!
Great product, but a few of the reviews had me skeptical at first. The trick is, if this disc does not read, you cannot run through the cleaning process. So do whatever you can to get this disc to read and your open tray/disc reading issues will be solved within 15-20 minutes. I tried a good 50-60 open/close cycles before I resorted to "tapping" over the disc drive while the system was trying to read the disc (note: xbox360 was laying flat for this tapping trick). And it worked! I just ran through the cleaning process and now every game reads on the first go around!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MidianStorm This is absolutely fantastic
My son was almost in tears because he thought his Halo 4 game was scratched as it wouldn't play in the XBOX 360 anymore. I tried other games and it would start to spin and then quit. It slowly had become less and less accepting of games until today it wouldn't read anything. I saw a bunch of Youtube videos talking about magnets, and spacers, and hitting the top, but DO THIS FIRST. It took about 50 times before it finally read the disc to clean the laser, and I ran it through the cleaning phase twice for good measure. SO DO NOT GIVE UP! I stuck HALO 4 in and it immediately booted. Tried a second game... booted. Best 15 bucks I ever spent. Game on....

My xbox slowly started to not read discs. After time it wouldnt read any at all without smacking it several times. I was told by another game store that the cleaning discs dont work, and they wanted to charge me 25 dollars for a cleaning, but they were pretty sure the problem was with the actual drive itself. If this was the case it would be 75 dollars for them to install a replacement drive. Well guess what, i purchased the clean dr. disc for 15 dollars from the helpful crew at gamestop, and now my xbox reads discs like new again after 1 cleaning! I would recommend this to anyone with the open tray error!
Rated 1 out of 10 by WhatIsThis Just Look Away
Let me start off by saying this product is horrible. i originally bought this for my older non-slim xbox 360 thinking it would prolong my xboxs life, however; this was not the case. I slipped this "cleaning disk" into my old xbox and the next thing I know my xbox couldnt read any of my disks. I tried every possible solution i could think of and nothing worked. Because of this misfortune i was forced to buy the new slim which is very nice but the point is because of this product i had to drop $200 on a new xbox. Do yourself a favor and brush over this product like it was never here.
Rated 10 out of 10 by nextgenrules Worked like a charm!
I was suffering from all sorts of "unreadable disc" and "unrecognisable disc" errors and sometimes would have to try to load a game up to 5 times before it would finally recognize it, prior to using this product. After following the no brainer on screen instructions, my 360 was reading discs as if it were brand new. Highly recommended product! Price is a bit high for a laser lens cleaner, but it does the job!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Bionicvapour Worked!
The xbox stop reading disks of any type. Ran the laser lens cleaner about 3 times and now it works perfect and can read all disk types. 16$ is a bit high for a cd with a few hairs attached to it but it beats taking it in to be serviced for a lot more. I plan on running this in all my other systems as preventive maintenance. Give this product a try before you try anything else.
