My 360 is about 2 months old and it has always worked perfect. But all of a sudden one day it just stopped reading the disks I put in. It says its reading then 2 seconds later says "open tray". All games...

Sounds like you may have to send it to microsoft to fix it. Go online to and start a repair. If its only be 2 months you should still have a warrenty

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds

I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

Finally, Try it out see if it works. If it doesn't call Microsoft.

Your Xbox is under warranty, I would call Microsoft and have them fix it. You don't want to open it up or do anything to void your warranty in case you get the red rings of death.
