Have you tried DVDs? If you have then you need to clean the disc head reader. That either involves taking it out or going on amazon and finding a head reader cleaning dvd. There may be a chance that a local best buy may carry them but it is a slim chance.

I would suggest giving Microsoft a call or going to xbox.com and getting them to guide you through setup and troubleshooting.

If the game has a ring around the disc like a scratch you want to go to game stop and have them buff it out . How your games got scratch ring on them if u hit or if you move the 360 from horizonal to vertical while theres a game in the dvd drive it will make a loud buzz sound like a blender with no ice in it and thats what put a scratch ring in your games . you can a skipped disc fix from game stop its called skip disc fixer . its a pate that you put on the game and gently buff out the scratch . For heavy scratches that r deep you might want to buy the game used.

william, as you and I are probably the only 2 ppl on earth who still have these systems(lol) E 82 is a memory malfunction. It could be fixed by swapping out your controller, as the removable memory is found there. Also, make sure you have your A/V cords plugged in correctly. If you don't it can give you a false rrod.

This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this mayhappen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.

I'm not sure the xbox live dashboard is still supported on the original xbox.

If your xbox wont read the disc, it just says open tray, there is a very simple solution i discovered. You dont need to do anything complicated or fancy, simply make sure everytime you turn your xbox off the disc is out. Turn your xbox on without a disc in, let it get to your profile screen, then put the disc in. Works every time.

Sounds like it's overheating, try moving it to a well ventilated area
