The power connector to the dvd drive could have came loose. If its out of warranty they you could check it, if not then send it in for free.

SOURCE: my xbox 360 wont read halo 3 but reads my other

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.

SOURCE: xbox 360 wont read any disc

Here's a link to a site that gives a lot of details about how to repair the DVD drive on your xbox. http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/xbox_dvd_repair.htm Sometimes all it takes is to clean the dust off the lens and mirror. This site offers a tutorial on how to do that. However, before you take your xbox apart and void any warranty I recommend you go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/default.aspx. This is the Microsoft support web site. You can determine if your xbox is still under warranty. If it is I recommend having Microsoft do the repair.

SOURCE: wont read games only reads dvds

This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

My xbox 360 will read and play dvd,s but wont read or play xbox 360 games what can i do


If its still reading dvd's chances are the laser is still good. First thing you should try is to clean the laser-its the most probable cause. Get a can of air, eject the disc tray and try spraying the air into the opening. Don't put the nozzle inside the drive though its a really high pressure and could damage the laser. Keep it about 3 to 4 inches away. After trying that it should work. If not you may want to consider getting it all opened and cleaned in depth and possibly increasing the power of the laser if cleaning it with a q-tip and a dab of rubbing alcohol doesn't do the trick. Last option would be to change the laser itself. They run about 10 bucks including shipping for most of them.
Happy Gaming and Good Luck!

Sometimes it wont read disc


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

This is quite a common error.
