Usually after having an Xbox 360 for a while, the "eye," or device that reads disks may ware down and break, or may just be dirty. This is the most common reason for the console to be unable to read any disks. I would contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX for support involving repairing the console, or another retailer to find a CD that could possible clean the eye.

My xbox 360, Reads To play this disc put in xbox 360 console! How can i fix it?


I recommend clearing your system cache. To do this go to My Xbox > System Settings > Memory, highlight your storage disk, press Y and select "clear cache." Try to run the disk again. If the Xbox is still failing to properly read the disk I suggest bringing it to a gaming store near you and have them put a new drive in it. This is most definitely a hardware error, and has nothing to do with your disks.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

I fixed my Xbox 360, then it broke again.


What you could try is remove your hard drive and see if you can play a game without it, if this works reattatch the hard drive and see how you get on, you would be suprised how many times this works.
hope this helps.

It will read some disks but not all disks and the ones it readds i try to play latter and it dont read


i had this problem with my xbox and its due to either the laser or the magnet within the disc drive that holds the disc in place. the magnet may have come loose which mean u can either open the drive up to try and reposition it, or replace the drive all together. my suggestion would be to send the xbox to microsoft if under warranty or send it to a third party company to see if they can fix it. buying a new drive for your xbox involves some very complex firmware flashing which is not advised

Not Reading


I am no expert, but I do, or did, have and xbox 360 which microsoft now has in for repairs. Long story short, the disc drive seems to be one of the weak links in this system. Failure rates of anything up to 40% of all units are being reported and many of the failures are due to this disc drive.
You can try cleaning the disc, as I did many times, but this does nothing. Chances are you are going to have to send it in for repairs, or you can buy yourself another disc drive over the internet and replace it yourself, for about $40 I think, and see if that doesn't solve your issue. Best of luck.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
