Rats. Sorry to hear that. You've got a bad DVD drive. If it's under warranty still just get your serial number off the back and call 1-800-4MY-XBOX for repair or replacement.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now: http://llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

I've tryed putting xbox360 games in a xbox360 but it sais open tray


The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

You can find more information about this issue, find parts to repair it, or send your system to repair all at the following website:

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

How to play wii rockband guitar, drums without the microphone


Was your mic hooked up when the system was turned on? The mic is probably signed in. The mic needs to be reconnected and signed out. Or reboot the whole system with what you want to use plugged in only.

Most playstation two system's have trouble reading multi layered discs. If you have a slimline design it might read it, but it is still a 50/50 chance it will.

Rock band ps2 disc


THis is my complaint letter I have sent out tonight:
My daughter and I went to Walmart in New Ulm, Minnesota tonight. She took her savings of $130.00 that she earned rock picking this summer to buy the game "Rockbandfor playstation2" for her playstation2. (FYI her playstaion2 is slim model numberSCPH-70012)

We got home and she happily opened the box and quickly put everything together and hooked it up. The disk was "unreadable" it stated "there is no data"

There was a pink slip inside the game stating to go to http://supportea.com/rockband if there was a problem with the game. I went to the site and called the phone number stated on the site. I was told that the Rockband game did not work on certain models of the playstation 2and there were lawsuits against sony because of this.I was told there was nothing they could do. I was told to call Sony at 1-800-345-7669. I called Sony and they told me they knew nothing about the so called lawsuits against them that "ROckband" told me. Sony said I could give them my credit card number and for $45 I could mail it to them and they would look at my playstation 2 console. Note: ALL OTHER PLAYSTATION GAMES WORK ON MY PLAYSTATION! Rockband is the only one that does not. Sony told me I needed to call EA (ROckband) . I called ROckband and talked to supervisor Steve. He said I could return the game (which is a HUGE box with drums etc in it ) at my cost and if found defective they would send me a factory sealed new game which I could return to Walmart and get my money back. I do not have the money to pay for shipping on this......I asked for a prepaid shipping label and they said no they could not do that.
I then called the New Ulm Walmart and talked to Asst manager Mike. He gave me the same answer as SOny and Rockband ultimatley gave me.....THere was nothing they could do. THe box was opened and federal law says they cannot take electronics back. He knew nothing about this game being faulty with certain models of Playstation2 systems.
I told all 3 of these companys that there should be a recall.....that they are aware this Rockband Playstation2 game does not work with certain Playstation 2 consoles. There should be some sort of label on the box stating this!!!!
My 14 year old daughter worked hard for that money she spent on this game! All I want is the money back!! I told Walmart they should not have these games on their shelves!!! I had purchased the game an hour before I called Walmart to ask if I could please return it and they said it would be against the law for them to take it back.
Do I need to buy a new playstation2 (which I cant afford!) and what if that playstation is one of the faulty models....then I am stuck with another useless playstation.......

Its just so ridiculous that my daughter bought this game and she can't even use it and can;t take it back to get her money back. We bought this game a couple hours ago and my daughter has been so upset about all of this she has been in tears. She has saved that money for a long time and finally decided to make this big purchase........We made a special trip to the New Ulm Walmart from Springfield just to buy this game..............

You would think big cooperations such as Sony, EA or Walmart would be willing to at least send a prepaid shipping label to help us out in this situation.
They are ripping consumers off!!!! Its a disgrace!
