    TO:EVERYONE WHO ALREADY REPLACED THEIR DRIVE...

    if you did not replace the drive properly such as... getting the unlock key from your original 360 drive and flashing it to the new 360 drive... then your 360 is now just a dvd player/xbla games. so I hope you kept your old drive. . .

    You can change the laser instead of the DVD drive. Changing the DVD drive is not as easy as you think.

You need to clean the laser that acually reads the games. Therefore take the xbox apart and take the dvd drive out and take out the four screws. Take a Q tip and damp one end and lightly brush the laser eye and take the other end and dry it.Put everything back together and it should work. If it does not the you need to change the dvd drive.

You can take the motherboard card from your old dvd drive and place it into your new dvd drive only if its the same model and it has the same card because the dvd key for your 360 is on your old dvd card.

I did this on my 360 and it works 100%

Yes the lazer is faulty , it would be too expensive to repait yourself but you know microsoft GIVE A 3 YEAR WARRANTY i sent them 5 xboxes in 2 years, just give them a ring with your serial number on 0800 5871102 and they will tell you if it is in warranty, AND ARRANGE COLLECTION with UPS and you dont have to pay a thing, if it isnt covered then you could pick a second hand core system up for about £65 and put your hard drive on it and other bits. Lazers cost about £100 alone.

In some cases it is not the laser. A DVD drive will not read the disc unless it is spinning, and some of the DVD drives (several different used in the box) have dirty spindle motors. If the motor is dirty it won't spin enough to read and you have to take the motor apart to clean it. This is pretty easy to do, but would not suggest doing it unless you are out of warranty. Check Youtube.com for "cleaning Xbox 360 DVD motor" for a step by step video.

SOURCE: 360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.

You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

Xbox game will not play on my new xbox 360


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

Original xbox games in 360


Dude!?! Get an xbox 360 hard drive!!! You can't play older xbox games on a 360 without one!!! Read your manual!!! It tells you this specifically in the manual, which no one ever reads anymore. Then when you insert that game, xbox prompts you to download the backwards compatibility update (XBOX LIVE NEEDED TO DO THIS!!!) and the rest is FULLY AUTOMATIC! Again, when in doubt, READ THE MANUAL!

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.
