Try starting the 360 without the Madden game in it. Start it up and then when the menu screen pops up, slide the game in. I was having the same problem with NBA2K8 and this took care of the problem. I believe it has something to do with the memory build up. I'm sure someone else can explain it.

every once in a while i get a "unreadable disc" error. i just pop it back in and it works. make sure the discs are clean and that you're not starting the system up w/ the game already in it. maybe some canned air to blow away dust from the disc door? i wouldn't do any kind of lens cleaning disc either.

That should be rule #1 when playing 360 as well as not moving the 360 AT ALL (I'm talking like 1 mm worth of movement).

Got a warranty in-store? If so, trade it in ASAP. Don't have a warranty? Time to call up M$ and get your coffin box now before you have to wait too long.

now that i think about it, that happened to my 1st copy of nba2k8. i kept trying to get it to read and it wouldn't. 5 minutes later i noticed it had a hairline crack in it. i was bummed out.

Don't leave the CD in the xbox once your done playing. NEVER move the xbox when the cd is in. Depends what position the xbox is in. Try to return the madden if you can.
