    when I turn on my xbox 360 it goes to the dashboard as usual but when in go to put my disc in it says reading but doesnt read it and goes back to the open tray option.

Are you sure that in the system settings the xbox is set to Load game instead of boot to dashboard? This will be located on the blade on the far right of the dashboard. If no help, try this: First, a stupid step - Make sure a compatible game disc is in the xbox, and turn it off. If it continues to boot to dashboard upon powering up, you could always try removing the system updates by: 1. Turn the console off 2. Press and hold the small sync button on the front of the console (the one you use to connect new controllers) 3. Turn on the console whilst still holding the sync button 4. By the time it has booted to the dashboard, the updates should be cleared. As the first version of the dashboard did not have the option to boot to dashboard by default, game discs should start normally now. If this is the case, feel free to re-download the updates from xbox live. Hope this helps!

Got the game in dec wont play got a second game and it wont load said disc unrecanisable

You chould check your disc, when you get that error, it means that the disc is unreadable, lol. Which means it cannot be read, so you can\'t play your game.

Check the back of the game disc for scratches or dust/other that shouldn\'t be there.

The region code is wrong,x-box 360

go to the settings menu and if you dont see region right away go to system settings. It will either say region or locale, depending on if you have the new xbox experience or not. if you never had xbox live on it and you bought it new you have the old version.

Yes you can play xbox games on 360 but most you have to download a patch for the game to play. If you are online with it, then put it in and it will download the patch it needs for that game.
