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

Bought new dvd drive benq 6038

LOL well 9 months later, I'll answer your question. EVERY Xbox360 dvd drive is "married"to it's motherboard. The communication between the drive and motherboard is encrypted with a key (aka- DVD-key) IF you don't flash the dvd-key from the original drive to the replacement then there is no way the Xbox will ever be able to play anythngg other than music and dvds. You NEED the correct key to encrypt/decrypt the 360 games so the motherboard can understand it.

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.

Problem with portable dvd player

i would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty. Please dont forget your ratings are important, thank you
