hi, i ordered a game last night called Il-2 sturmovik: birds of prey.
yeah i know its unknown, but i started playing this and after a hour or something the screen freezed and i turned my xbox off (i wanted to play MC), so this morning i wanted to play again and my xbox made weird noises wen i turned it on and when i wanna play its says: Unrecognized Disc
I cleaned the disk and i got still the message :\
other games work still fine. and last night my little kitty jumped on the xbox and the xbox felt, and does that have something to do with it?

please help, Thnx.

is the disc scratched up? your kitty may have moved the xbox and it may have scratched the disc. my xbox did that when my cat moved mine

Go to a game shop and ask for your disc to be cleaned.

i thought you meant all games. go to a movie store or came store and get it cleaned like LaLand0fChocolate said

My xbox did the same with my beloved halo reach limited edition. It fixed itself after 2 days. It also did the same with fallout new vegas.


More commonly my xbox has a disagreement with TESIV:oblivion, everytime i put the disk in it says unrecognised, eject and close and its absolutely fine. Does that every time.

Otherwise, clean the disk some more (do not use baby wipes on it, the chemical used in them dissolves the disk coating), check the tray is clean and blow in the xbox. Try it again. If its still not working take it to a friends house or something see does it work in their xbox and still not working return the disk as faulty and don't mention it worked for awhile first
Some people shouldn't be allowed near technology. We should just leave them in the bottom of the grand canyon with sticks as a tourist attraction.

yeah, i'll try it in my brothers xbox, but i saw videos about fixing it with toothpaste.
and i found out that there is a big perfect ring scratch on it, some of my brothers games have that too, that happens when the xbox falls on its side like i said, but do you know if that tothpaste story is bullshit or not?

The use of toothpaste on your disc's is absolute nonsense. Since there's a big circle scratch on your disc your screw'd aswell, Might as well do

Sometimes you have to tilt the disc in the light to see the scratches that may otherwise be hidden!
