Must specify which console little buddy, can help us alot in diagnosing a problem.
Make sure all vents and the console itself is free of dust buildup or clogging. That means under the cd cover if it's a ps2. Some machines don't like getting hot and act weird when they are, so clean air vents are a must.
Have u dropped it recently? have u toched or forced the lense with ur finger??

1)check the condition of the disc...scratches, damage, or unknown propertys "food, super glue deposit, peanut butter" can cause a bad reading..
2)the CD/DVD might just be a little dirty, wipe it with a clean cotton cloth, or go2 wal*mart "or ur prefered store" and get a CD/DVD cleaner "basically, its a cotton cloth with special solvent"
3)the reader in the counsel might be dirty...go2 wal*mart "or ur prefered store" and grab a "CD/DVD reader cleaner "its a disc with brushes on it"

On my ps3 movies play but not games any idea whats wrong with it


I'm guessing your talking about DVDs and game disks, If your PS3 isn't reading PS3 games anymore but is reading DVDs then your laser could be dieing and you may need a replacement.

My xbox 360 reads dvds but not games


If oyu have had it for a long time or its old the laser on the DVD drives eventually burn out from too much use. The games require a more precise laser to read it while DVDs are easier to read.

If you have a original xbox game try that. If it works it must be the laser.

It will not read games just dvds


Hello,


This is caused by your drive and laser.

1 question... Have you recently tried to Mod this system?


moving on....

DVDs take less spin power to read, games take more. So, in result your system reads only DVDs because your Drive isn't spinning fast enough.

It would need to be repaired. HOWEVER,

If this system has been modded, it has potentially damaged your drive and system.
