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.

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

The x`box was saying it can't read the disc. contact u


If you have the new kinect xbox 360 dashboard and you cannot get your xbox 360 console to read your game discs or DVDs, you are not alone. An update that was recently applied through Xbox Live makes your discs unreadable.
Remove the update by navigating to:
System Settings->Memory->STOP HERE!
You should see your Hard Drive highlighted, if not move to it and then enter this on your controller:
X,LB,RB,X,LB,RB,X
Delete System Update will appear, make sure there is no media in your disc drive and select YES. You system will restart and appear to hang DO NOT TURN IT OFF OR MESS WITH IT!
After a couple minutes your system will start and you should be able to play discs again.

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.
