SOURCE: New Xbox 360 disk drive doesn't play games

well my friend thats because each xbox 360 drive is unique for each console so it only works on the original console, to solve this you have to flash the firmware from the old drive and put it the new one, there are many sites explaining it just google it.

SOURCE: I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games

Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

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.

When trying to play a DVD, we insert the disc and it says loading. Then it tells us that it is the wronge type of disc.


your disk and player must be compatable, you cant play dvd's in a blue ray player, you cant use blue rays in a dvd player, you cant use ps4 games in an xbox and you cant put cd's in a record player... hope that helps!

My 360 takes a long time to load and when it finally loads it won't play games but it will play DVDs it's driving me mad I just want to play games


My xbox did same, Try cleaning the disk first, I know this is obvious but eliminate this then clean the laser , you can buy cleaner discs cheaply. if still faulty then i would change the disk drive. ( get one on ebay) . But the disk drive is keyed to the motherboard so you will need to swap the circuitboard over from your dvd player to the new one. I did this with mine with great results. You can get info on ebay how to get into your xbox .

The disk drive in my xbox 360 wont play games


Buy a new laser specifically for the brand of dvd drive, like phillips, hitachi, ect... only, the laser, if you purchase the whole dvd drive, then you have to flash it and all...too complicated. just the laser assembly and reinstall and enjoy.
