Your laser is going out or something, or its dirty. mine was doing this to me. eventually it would not see the disc at all and kept saying open tray. i bought a philips laser lens cleaner for around 8 bucks and its helped me out so far. from what i've read though, this is only a temporary solution and will require service eventually.

My disk drive don't read games that aren't scratch how can i replace the disk drive on my xbox 360 halo 3 edition


Unfortunately, replacing your disk drive is not something that a normal user can do. You will need to call Microsoft support at (800) 469-9269 and see if they can fix it for you.

My xbox 360 wont read halo 3 but reads my other games?


Your disk may be damaged. If it has scratches on it that can cause major problems. But the worst problems are caused by fingerprints. Fingerprints prevent the laser from reading the data on the disk. If your disk has fingerprints, run it under the water faucett and, using a soft cloth (the kind you would clean eyeglasses with), wipe from the center to the outside of the disk, not in a circle. If the problem persists, the Halo 3 data on your hard drive may be corrupted. Delete the data and try starting the game then.

Xbox 360 can't find the disk


This happened to me a few times. if you bump onto the xbox with a game in it, it might make a circle scratch on it. Check for that, and if it isn't there, then mabe try cleaning the disk. I pour some water on the disk and then gently wipe it in a circle with a tissue.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

System won't read games and makes buzzing noise


Is it a copied disk? this only happens to those types of disk. Try contacting Microsoft.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.
