    do not write on your discs unless with a cd/dvd marker, do not label in anyway your disc, if using memorex. Thats what I used to do and that gave me the best results... What kind of drive do you have???

    a sharpie will in no way effect your disc and how it plays, only labels will as the slightly extra weight that the label causes makes the disc spin slightly different then it would without a label. It is more then likely the cheap Memorex media that your using that is causing you problems. If the laser has trouble reading them then you will get that error. You can copy the disc to a new one using Nero but if you still use Memorex it may give you a problem again after a short time of working.

    however there is always the pot adjustment way out. Type in xbox 360 pot adjustment to google and make sure you do everything word for word. or else you will break your 360 drives laser which is like 20 bucks.
