Do you hear a scrapping sound when the console tries to read the disc?

If you do hear such a sound, you may have to put some tape at the center hub (That transparent plastic area) of your discs to give your console more grip on them.
If you can hear the laser eye clicking instead (Struggling to read) - I think that either your backup discs have gone bad, or your laser has weakened (But not dead) or has some alignment problem .
