When we put in a game for our 360 system it says it's playing a dvd we can't get the game to work. how do i fix it so it says play game amd not play dvd? (it only does this with 1 game. the rest work fine


Ok if your for certain thats the original dvd drive and the other games work then its too many scratches on the disc or your laser lens needs wiped off with qtip and rubbing alcohol.


If you get an xbox thats say play dvd all the time on every game and it says to play this disc stick in a xbox 360 console then its the wrong dvd drive for that motherboard and you wont get the key (on a chip in the motherboard on the cd drive) unless you have the original dvd drive taken out of your xbox. Then you can just switch that little motherboard on the bottom of the dvd drives and it will read games. This is for those who will look at this with a xbox off ebay that they cant figure out how to fix. Its just an expensive dvd player.

My xbox only plays cds not games


did you try to replace the dvd drive? there are a set of security keys that are programmed into the dvd drive that marry the drive to the console, if you just throw in a different dvd drive the keys with the console and the ones with the new dvd drive wont match up and will not play games, but behave like a cd/dvd player instead. you will have to dump the keys from the old dvd drive by flashing(modding it) and then spoofing the keys to the new dvd drive with a program such as dosflash(old way) and jungleflasher(better)

Wwhen i put a game in my x_box 360 it thinks its playing a dvd. So i put a dvd in it and it works , just wont play games


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.
