Won't Play Games, DVD and CD fine

Got a refurb unit, played for roughly 48 hrs fine, went to play a different game, started getting the error message that it couldn't read the game. Put previously working game back in, won't read it eaither now. Tried msft troubleshooter (removing hdd and trying game, etc) no luck. Will play any CD or DVD without any trouble. What gives?!

I am guessing that when it was refurbished, it was because of a disc drive error... so i am about 90% sure that they didn't flash the disc drive and that would be their mistake. Disc Drives have their own memory and would still be able to play cd's and dvd's without problems... but if they are not flashed correctly through a sata computer with the correct hardware, they will not play games. My opinion is that you should contact the place which you bought it from, it's not your fault.

Error: reinsert memory unit


I notice no one properly read the question.
The user asking the question specifies that it still plays games.
It's not playing DVD therefore it's not a laser issue. I post this because I have the same problem - the same error (which states please reinsert memory device) comes up when attempting to PLAY DVD. however the Xbox will STILL PLAY GAMES.
the Xbox has never been connected to the Internet and still currently has no connection. Anyone have an actual solution?

PS3 wont play game but will play DVD's


The laser in the dvd drive requires different strengths to read different discs. If its reading movies and not games then the laser is starting to go bad in it. You can either replace the laser if your tech save to open up the ps3 and opening up the dvd drive, or you can just get another drive to put in there. Either one you can get from Ebay fairly cheap.

Xbox 360 arcade pal game read error


You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

My ps3 quit playing ps3 games. It would play ps2


you had a software error, when you reset the system it re installed all the software. you got lucky had one that did that i reformated the hdd and still nothing put a disc in and it would just continuosly read the disc and nothing would ever come of it. the first set of PS3's had inferier blue ray drives and they tend to crash on the hardware end. if this happens sony has a refurb program for $150 you can send yours in and get another back that is refurbed...

How to set pc to play different s game.


Well to get full versions of a game u either have to go buy them in a store or download them online for a price on their official site (not for all games).

After u have the game, if it s on a Cd/DvD just pop the disk into your DVD/CDROM and a autorun will start guiding u through the process.. If u bought it online u may have to launch the "SETUP.EXE" file in the game directory.

You don t need to set your PC to play different games in any way. You just have to have the right configurations depending on what games u are trying to play.

Won't play cd-2 on windows vista get error message what now the game loaded fine but will not play in sing. or web.


I'm just shooting from the hip on this on, but I recall one disc being a CD and the other a DVD. You have to have a DVD/reader to run both. If you only have a CD R/W, you only get half the features. Dig?

Dual screen car solution dvd player with games


Considering the DVD player is inside of the unit, and the unit will not play a DVD (I am assuming you put in a DVD) while in DVD mode, the conclusion I would draw would be that the unit is defective and should be returned. To give details to this deduction: DVD Mode has power, just is not producing an image. --Known because it can play games.
