This problem is caused by your disc drive.... A new disc drive bought off of ebay, generally costs about 50 bucks, including the shipping and handling..... You will need to open your xbox to get the model number... yes, it does matter... Once you get the new disc drive... you need to open up the old disc drive... and you will see a memory chip inside and you will need to be VERY careful not to rip any of the parts it is connected to... once you have the chip out... you will need to take the chip out of the new disc drive, and replace it with the chip from your old disc drive... (each xbox 360 has its own unique memory, which can only otherwise be installed by flashing it through a sata computer which much more complicated than it really should be).... once you put the old chip into the new disc drive... put everything back together... for a tutorial on opening an xbox 360 and also fixing disc drive in your 360... i recommend youtube,,, and the person's name i recommend is "fixyourownxbox" These videos are definitely helpful, and saved me mucho dinero $ :D.... Good luck... if you have anymore questions, dont be afraid to ask... i would be more than happy to answer them

Yep, Lil Fatty 8 has given you a good explanation. The error your seeing is basically to say your drive is on its way out wether the chips burning out or the optical element is breaking down. If you don't sort this problem soon you'll soon get the TROD (three rings of death).

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it

You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

My xbox 360 loads in but when i put in a game it dosent load in the game

You could temporarily upload all your games to your xbox360 hard drive using your pc to play or buy a new disc drive but you would have to flash the firmware or manually swap the bottom internal boards inside of the new disc drive with the old one.

Not reading cds.

Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry
