Every 360 motherboard has dvd key assigned in the dvd drive that came with the motherboard if you want the games to work on the 360 it must have the dvd drive that came with the motherboard other vise the 360 will only play dvd movies.

Xbox 360 will not read games but plays DVD and CD

It would be best to take it to someone who mods them as they will know if it is the correct drive and if it is running modded firmware(as they are the guys who do this regularly) and if the drive has been set up correctly. They also may be able to extract the drive key and reflash the original(or modded if you preferred) firmware for the drive.

I bought mercury PNMCP73v in march 2009. I have 3 years warranty. Now it is not working I send it to the mercury service center . but that guy is telling that it is out of warranty. What to do now...??

Go to computer shop and ask for the same motherboard model. If there is no available, buy a new motherboard which can support your CPU or processor. In that case with different motherboard some chipset might not work with your software installed in your hard disk drive from your previous defective motherboard. If not compatible you have to reformat your hard drive but back up first your files and data. Install cd driver along with new motherboard box. Have a good day!

When turing on xbox 360 green rigsflash as normal but the power sign flashes and never stays solid diskdrive dosnt open ethier what has happend any ideas on how to fix

Have you taken it apart before? If so make sure your disc drive is connected properly to the motherboard if its not then the middle light will flash. Also if you bought it that way it probably means your disc drive motherboard is fried. Its the board under the disc drive screwed down. Hopefully its just not connected though.

This option should not need to be enabled through jumpers, the bios should automatically detect the ram type on the motherboard, make sure you are using compatible memory.

This is also caused by an overheating problem similar to the red light error, if your box is under warrenty then send it back to microsoft or contact the store you bought it from if not there are alot of places on the net that offer to fix the console and give you a warrenty all be it short for a fee, but if your feeling handy the there are countless guides to fixng it yourself heaps on youtube, i have personaly fixed piles of 360's and can fix one in about 30 mins now start to finnish, take a look at this link i might help :)

hope you get back gaming soon.
