    Sometimes this can happen if the laser is dead or if someone has tried to flash it and they have done it wrong. if no one has touched your dvd drive then it is more than likely a laser fault and this can easily be repaired by replacement parts from ebay etc.

    You could also try adjusting the laser pots ive uploaded a short guide to help you along your way:

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,

In my PES 11 on my xbox 360 , it doesnt start .... when i put in the disc it says region error . SO how do i fix it?????


For the xbox360, the region code on the disc must match the region code in the registry of the dvd-rom drive. The only way around this is to modify your xbox360 so that it plays different regions. This is highly illegal, voids all your warranties and is not at all recommended.

I own a US console (NTSC) and it will only play discs that match with the NTSC code. I can not play a Japanese game (NTSC-J) since NTSC-J is different from NTSC.

Use the following link to figure out which region disc and which region xbox360 you have:

Xbox360 game will not read


If your xbox is modded try a different brand of disc.
Obviously try and clean the disc itself.
Else your dvd drive is faulty and needs to be replaced
