Your having a dvd drive problem Im taking a guess but i have fixed many like this before. What you need to do is take your xbox360 apart. You can find a video how to do this on our site http://www.xboxmodshop.com next you want to remove your dvd drive take out the four screws on the bottom and remove the top cover. Now make sure your looking at the spindle where the game rest in the middle of your spindle you will normally find two magnets, but in your case your probably wont. Yours are probably stuck to the top of your drive cover. You need to remove them and superglue or epoxy them back in the middle of your spindle.After completely dry put everything back together it should play normal.I recommend a inter-cooler so this wont happen again.

I switched disk drive from 360 to 360 and now it wont play dvds someone please help!!


the issue is with in the swapping. The system inbedded a security code that is only identify by that single xbox360. In order for your system to recongize your disk drive in another xbox360 is if 1. the diskdrive is replica of the one swaped then only the chip under the drive is needed from that system or 2. flashing the disk drive. **BOTH ARE ILLEGAL**

you can manage either one by googling flashing xbox360 diskdrive ______ <--- the type of diskdrive you swaped out.

My xbox 360 keeps saying reading reading reading then says open tray what do i do


okay that sounds like the magnet in the cd case is stuck.open your xbox360 and access your cd drive.search on the internet if u cant.when you do,on the drive there is a circle pry it off with a flathead screwdriver and you should see a circle looking thing that moves around freely when you move it.okay cut out a circular piece of index card or thick paper that could fit on the circle and place the big metal circle you pryed off back on the drive.reassemble the xbox.it should read now.if that doesnt work then it could be the placement of the laser.dissassemble your xbox again or do this also before you reassembled it.open your cd drive by removing the 4 screws holding it together.{if its a hitachi lite(H-L} drive it will be 6} and remove the top cover there should be a lense thing that moves back and forth when it reads the games move it as close as you can to the {spinner} make sure there is no dust or hair on the rails and reassemle your xbox360.there ya go.oh if you here a buzz when u play the game dont worry about it its not gonna blow up lol.

Everytime i put in a new game my xbox360 disk wont close it takes 4 or 5 times of opening and closing it for it finally to stya close and read my disk. Can someone please help me ?


Hello,

Get in touch with Microsoft for a replacement or repair.
I believe it is still in guarantee.

You could also try to remove the front cover case of the xbox to see if something is blocking the closure mechanism.

Hope it helped.

Xbox360 disc drive


Hi, it sounds like you have the" open tray" error that is very common with the 360s. How you fix this is you take your DVD drive apart and look at the laser assembly, there are 2 screws on the side of it, look at the one on the left. Turn this screw to the left a VERY little bit at a time and keep checking it every time you turn it until it stops the open tray error.
