A console that doesn't read a game disc usually means after an extended period of gaming on any console the inside components act as a magnet and collect anything in the air. if the system is under warranty then send it to microsoft for a thorough cleaning which will cost about $99 plus shipping. otherwise a good cleaning internally is the 1st step any repair person will attempt and probably take care of the problem. preventative maintenance will save you money in the long run.

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

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.
