You could try deleting more memory so it can run your games faster and play certain games that need a certain amount of memory to play

If the system is older its possible that the laser head inside of your xbox is dirty or the games you are trying to play the cd is scratched, has fingerprints, or smudged

I suggest just getting a regular dvd cleaner cd from your local store such as walmart, bestbuy, kmart. ect. Then running that though your xbox a few times. Even a cd-rom cleaner disk would do the trick.

The 2nd thing id make sure that the games your playing the cd itself isnt damaged or smugged in any way. Somtimes using a special cleaning agent that you can buy in the store, or even using a small bit of rubbing achoal and a soft towl or rag to whip it clean.

How do i set up the old xbox to get online?


Unfortunately you won't be able to. Xbox has discontinued the original Xbox live and now only does Xbox 360 live. Im sorry about that. I wanted to play some games online too on my original Xbox but I was told they don't keep it up anymore. :(

Our game appears to have a scratch on it and won'at work


Hi there,

I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.

Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).

Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.

"
  1. Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
  2. Scroll down to My Xbox
  3. Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
  4. This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
  5. On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance."

My xbox 360 fell and now it won't read a certain game.


obviously when it "fell" its broken something inside, if its still under its 1st year in warrenty, i would send it to microsoft and say that it just stopped working, but it could be a many thing causing the problem, if you dont wanna wait for microsoft, find a local man in your area who specialises in fixing xbox's.

Xbox 360 will not read certain disks, some work, some dont...???


Hi,

this sounds like a gpu fault, or a laser read fault.
i,d return it to M$ for a replacement again, or alternatively look for a good 360 repair specialist in your area. you need the rrod kit, or a relacement dvd drive. i,d think more on the line of dvd laser if your getting no red-rings. don,t waste your money on a laser replacement, 9 times out of 10 they don,t work. go for a new drive, and have the drives logic board swapped.
you can find out about this on xbox forums, and tutorials.

Xbox 360 won't read a certain game It reads all games fine except Halo 3, tried 2 copies, tried them in my friends xbox 360 and they both work, GTA 4 PGR 2 MotoGP saints row, works just not the game i...


If you have the original X box CD's it will work fine expect when you have issues with region code.PAL NTSC are the two format a game can work with.so if you have NTSC formated game TRY a PAL version.it may work.
else clean your lens and try inserting a new CD of that GAME.
