Ive got mine horizontal and stuck some little rubber blocks to the underside to lift it of the surface a bit to aid airflow under it. Seems to run a bit cooler now

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console wont load games


Try to install the disk on a hard drive or mem stick, if that will not work, try the mem stick in another 360 install in then plug it back in your brothers, it will only need the disk to verify so wont have to read it all the time. The best mem sticks for this I have found to be sandisk.

You can also try to unplug the cord and then put it back in. try to put xbox 360 in vertical position and then put the game in. if it work on vertical position, then you can put it back to horizontal position.

Hope it works.

We turn the console on and start playing....but after 5 or 10 min the console showes a black screen with this message on: this disk cannot be read please reffer to your operations manual.

Hello :

1:This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.
2:If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
3:Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
4:If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
5:If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

Contact if that didn't help please !

rate if useful please !

best regards .

I am planning to buy a Sony Playstation2 from the US which I am taking to back to India. My question is will the AC adaptor work in Inida as the current is 240V.

You just need to go to a store and pick up a travel adapter for the plug.
Can't really remember what store has one, try Radio Shack, or Best Buy. They should have them. I know they work overseas, prior military here- had my X360 in Iraq, had buddies in Korea with PS3, PS2, X360, etc... Just need the adapter for the power cord.

My nintendo wii wont load discs??

Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
