SOURCE: Message "To play game put game in xbox 360 console"

the dvd drive prolly needs to be replaced. ive had this issue plenty of time before and it sometimes turned out to be the cd its self. the console might not be able to read the cd becuase of some kind of damage, try a dif 360 game.

if that dont work open up the cd and look on the dvd drive there will me a model number of a dvd drive. go to ebay.com or google.com and find a place that sells brand new or used but working dvd drive and purchase it and add it to the console. this will fix the issue of any reading cd problems.

make sure you purchase the correct dvd drive model

SOURCE: xbox 360 thinks game is dvd

your laser is going out or something, or its dirty. mine was doing this to me. eventually it would not see the disc at all and kept saying open tray. i bought a philips laser lens cleaner for around 8 bucks and its helped me out so far. from what i've read though, this is only a temporary solution and will require service eventually.

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

SOURCE: to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.

when this happens, it either symbolizes that somehow, your tsop32 chip has corrupted in your dvd drive and has lost the dvd key, or you (someone) has attempted to flash the firmware on the dvd drive and it has ended in a failure and destroyed the initial firmware. basicly, if you have your dvd key, you can try to reflash the drive with working firmware (tutorials can be found everywhere) or, if you have warrenty left, send it in. if all else fails, find a person who knows how to disassemble an xbox 360 + dvd drive, desolder the tsop32 chip, and rip the firmware. this can be costly though, and you'll need a new dvd drive afterwords if your old one gets broken in the process. and if you can't get the dvd key, well, your 360 is now an expensive dvd player.

best of luck

My Xbox 360 plays DVDs, CDs, when I put a game in it will load and the screen will say XBOX but nothing else happens or it will say to play this disk put it in a Xbox 360 console! How can I fix this!


Your disc may be scratched. Try a disc repair kit. If it's a known working game then there may be a defect with the firmware of the 360 which could require a factory reset of the console.

My xbox 360, Reads To play this disc put in xbox 360 console! How can i fix it?


I recommend clearing your system cache. To do this go to My Xbox > System Settings > Memory, highlight your storage disk, press Y and select "clear cache." Try to run the disk again. If the Xbox is still failing to properly read the disk I suggest bringing it to a gaming store near you and have them put a new drive in it. This is most definitely a hardware error, and has nothing to do with your disks.

Says "insert xbox 360 disk only"


common problem, the disks arent clean, clean them with rubbing alcohol, nail poolish, eye glass cleaner. if they are new disks then u were ripped off, go back to place of purchase and tell em.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
