I can't play any games on mmy360

Are you referring to your xbox won't read game disc, or it won't load any downloaded game on your xbox and games on disc?

If it is your disc drive, this may be a major issue to the point where your disc drive no longer works, and you will have to take it in somewhere to get it replaced, or it could just be that your disc drive is dirty and you simple just need to clean the disc tray off.

If it isn't loading any games at all, you may just have a stalled xbox and need to turn it off and give it a minute or two. If that doesn't happen to be the case, your storage on the xbox could be full, causing your xbox to run slower and not cooperate. If it is full I would suggest in deleting memory of any useless apps or games, or invest in purchasing external hard drive or a larger memory Universal Serial Bus.

Now this is the final possible solution I could give you, if it is a disc problem. This is could be extremely difficult to do, but from personal experience 9/10 times it works.

Make sure to start with no disc in the drive and the Xbox is turned on. And you have a blunt object like your controller.
1. Turn the Xbox on its side laying down
2. Open the disc drive and put your disc in. Now close it.
3. Now while your xbox is trying to read the disc, just simply starting lightly-medium strength hit the top of your xbox in the general area of where the disc is until the xbox can read it or declares it can't.

This is won't necessarily work first try, but although it sounds stupid it does work for me.

I am playing Modern Warfare 2 on my Xbox 360 and after about 20 minutes it quits reading the disk. Any clue on how to fix this? Other disks work just fine.

Check the disc for any scratches. Clean the disc with some disc repair solution. If you just purchased the game try and take it back to where you bought it for an exchange. If there is no scratches or anything that could stop the disc from reading right it could be your Xbox. Xbox has been known to have many issues with heat maybe your Xbox is getting to hot. In which case the problem is your Xbox and you will have to call Microsoft about getting a new Xbox. My Xbox started to go bad in the exact same way. I would play multiplayer for awhile and it would freeze after playing for a little while. I would then turn the xbox off for a few min then turn it back on and it would work again for awhile untill a few days later when i got the red ring of death which means a hardware fail.

My 360 dose not read discs but it dose spin them

Disc Error :- I have the same error. You can do 4 things.

A) You have to keep turning it on and off. Here's how... Turn it on, then click open tray then close tray ( keep opening and closing tray about 10 times) then turn the console off. Then keep repeating process for about 15-20 minutes and eventually the game disc will show up. ( I have to do this every time)

B) Make sure that this is covered by Microsof't's RROD warranty. Then some how get teh red rings on this console and send it to Microsoft. (Note: I am not held responsible for your actions.)

C) This is a lens problem. So go out to a store and buy a DVD lens cleanser. It's a disc that cleans the lenses of the DVD or the XBOX.

D) Open it up and replace the lens (like the above guy said) (much harder and more costly).

Pls rate my solution if it did help thanks.
