Incorrect drive replace with correct replacement part. If it is the correct replacement part it maybe faulty or need to be calibrated. Both need to be done by a qualified technician.

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.

I would assume this is what you're talking about. It's easier to buy a new laser off ebay though.

Your laser either needs to be cleaned or is going bad. I have seen this many times before. Try taking the drive apart and cleaning the laser aperture with 91% alcohol and a cotton swab (carefully). If that doesn't work then you need to replace the laser (or get a new drive).

Xbox 360 DVD Drive Not Reading Games Only DVD,CD after replacing the dvd rom


If you replaced the DVD-ROM drive yourself, some newer Xboxes do not recognize and/or function properly with older drives. I tried replacing a drive in an older Xbox with an older yet DVD-ROM drive, and it would not work. When replacing a DVD-ROM in an Xbox, it is advisable to use the same model drive, as the Xbox does strange things when you introduce different hardware. The url of a page is below that details the different drives that Xboxes use. See if your new drive is the same as the old one, and if not, that is almost certainly the issue.

I recently fitted anew cd drive to my xbox 360 but it will not play xbox 360 games as it sees them as DVD'S . I have been told that you have to follow an anti theft proceedure on the xbox 360 to rectify...


I hope you mean you fitted a new DVD drive into your console. All games are in DVD format and if the replacement drive can not read and detect dual layer DVD's then they will not be able to see any of the games you put in.

How can I flash my xbox 360? it wont recognize the new dvd rom drive.


Disconnect all cables from the Xbox 360 and remove the faceplate from the front of the console. Lift the plastic tabs on the outer shell and remove the plastic casing from the machine. Unscrew the Torx size 7 screws and lift open the metal cover. Unplug both the power and SATA cables from the rear of the DVD drive and lift it out of the console. Replace it with the new DVD drive, and connect the power cable to the unit. Connect your SATA cable to the DVD drive and a free SATA port on your computer.Turn on your computer and open a web browser. Download JungleFlasher and run the program. As of September 2010, JungleFlasher is the most stable and up-to-date flashing program for Xbox 360, and it is also the only program capable of flashing Xbox 360 drives from within Windows (earlier programs used MS-DOS). Click "Flash .BIN to DVD" in the program's main menu and select your Xbox 360's DVD drive. The program will flash the new DVD drive for use with your Xbox 360 console.Turn off the computer once the flashing process is complete and disconnect your SATA cable from the DVD drive and your PC. Reconnect the Xbox 360 SATA cable to the new DVD drive, then close the metal cover on the console. Rescrew the Torx size 7 screws and replace the outer plastic shell on the Xbox 360. Return the faceplate to its original position then reconnect all external cables and accessories to the console. Power on the Xbox 360 and the replacement DVD drive will function normally.

Everytime i put a disc in my xbox it reads dvd. I got to keep ejecting it and closing it back to make it read the game . Pleasee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! help me


Just to make certain it's not a burnt game on a modded/flashed xbox then more likely your optical dvd drive on the DVD player for the xbox 360 is going out. The lens and laser can be acting up inside and the only way to fix this is to replace the optical dvd drive. You can remove the optical drive and it has 4 screws. You carefully remove the chip inside and transfer to new xbox 360 optical drive which by the way has to be the exact same model to work properly. There are detailed instructions on youtube on how to remove and replace a xbox 360 dvd player.

Replaced my xbox 360 dvd drive all works fine except it won't let me play any original game even installed the newest update again to make sure ,any solutions?


Most of the time a replaced DVD drive will not work properly in an xbox 360 unit. The drives are coded / locked to each individual console. Unless you flashed the new drive to match the old drive (cloning it) then it will not work. I would not recommend trying to clone the drive unless you are extremely technical and familiar with how to do it.

Thanks

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games


Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

My xbox 360 says put game in xbox 360


your dvd drive is faulty this is either the laser or the complete drive you will have to open your 360 to find the make and model of your dvd and either replace the laser (available from ebay) or the whole dvd drive but the curcuit board on the dvd drive is coded to the xbox it is fitted to you will have to obtain a dvd drive the same make and model as the faulty one and swap circuit boards for it to work.

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console


The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?
