The drive in the the xbox360 is married to the motherboard. Which means you have to extract the original bin from the old drive and install it in the new drive in order for it to play games. We can do this for you if your interested email us xbox360fixer@verizon.net

Sony cdp-c215 wont read disc removed cover disc doesn't spin


The pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or the laser pickup is defective, the whole laser assembly would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair cheaper to buy.

Game wont read says put disc in xbox 360 but i am using xbox 360 also it says its a dvd not game just wont let me play no more


If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys. Hope this helps.

My ps3 wont read disc and went it does the game wont load it will just say error has occured


Hi,

This is an extremely common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

My PS3 wont redcognize discs i put in a disc and it will not do anything it used to read ps2 ps3 and bluray discs but it wont read anything and ive never used it online


The laser in the drive is probably going bad. Use a can of air and blow some into the drive so that way your making sure no specs of dust or dirt are on the laser. If after you do that it still won't play any discs, then you know the laser is bad so you can either replace the laser or replace the whole drive which is easier to do.

When you insert disc it says reading.... then it


this can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive, or a laser that has completely gone out. it will most likely need to be replaced. check with microsoft to see if your unit is still under warranty at this site: http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/LiveIDSignIn.aspx?redirectUrl=http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair



if the unit is no longer under warranty, we'd be happy to clean/replace the laser for you. we are a console repair company based out of dallas, tx. all of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console, not just what we fix. we also offer extended warranties at an additional cost.

you can contact us at 214-222-5788 or support@wiredextreme.com

My xbox 360 has stopped reading all discs


Take a can of air and blow some air into the drive to be sure no specs of dust or dirt is affecting the laser.

If that doesn't work then its going to be either the laser or the dvd drive that is bad. Replacing the laser is cheaper but more time consuming cause you have to take apart the system then the drive to replace the laser, whereas the drive you just take apart the system and swap out the drive. You can get the drives from Ebay all the time.

I have an hp pavilion dv6000 and the disk drive doesn't work


i had the same exact problem with my dv 6000 notebook. The dvd Rom is damaged. U will have to get a new one. I tried lots of software but didnt work. i also wasted many cd'c nd dvd's which it didnt burn and also made them unusable.
So get ur dvd Rom replaced as sson as possible and another tip for future is that these dvd roms give up after writing about 100 dvds max i along with my 3 frnds having dv 6000 laptops have exprienced this. My frnd has now got his dvd rom replaced for the 15th time within 1 and ha;f year.. so replace ur drive.

Disc drive wont work


It sounds like the laser may have went out. When reading a disc the laser moves up and down as well as back and forth. It sounds like it is reading from the wrong position if it's reading at all. Remove any disc from the drive. Go into the device manager and remove/uninstall the drive from the list. Reboot the computer, wait until the hardware wizard reinstalls it and then try reading another disc. If this doesn't help then most likely the laser has went bad. It is not an uncommon problem. You can also see if there is a firmware update for your drive from the maufacturers website or your PC speciffic website. Hope this helps.
