Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Disc spins very fast but program won't start

When I insert a disc the drive spins at a very fast rate (real fast!) but the system won't or can't read the disc. It just continues to spin. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem. Thanks for any help. This is an Xbox 360 purchased 07/2008.

Xbox360 disc tray motor won't stop spinning


Hi Matt,

Here is the process for troubleshooting this specific issue:

  • First remove your disc from the tray. I assume you have already done this.
  • Ensure your faceplate (the front of your system) is on correctly. Sometimes these can become loose and off kilter. Press the two edges firmly with your hands and "push" it into place.
  • Push the eject button. Although it hasn't worked in the past, adjusting the faceplate may correct the issue.
  • If that doesn't work, move the disc tray drive gently from left to right when it is open. Again, be gentle-- what we're trying to do here is slightly adjust the disc tray in case it isn't entering your system properly.

Still not working? Time to send it to Microsoft for repair. You can find all of that information on their official support site. Click here for more details.

Hope that helps!

Power works; fan spins;light is on; promo screen works; disc won't read; disk won't spin


The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere

PS3 will not read any disc.


Hi

This is a common problem on the PS 3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service. However - if you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

MY xbox 360 will read dvds but when i enter a game it goes to the disc error screen


Have you tried to get this system flashed?

What's happening is .. which could be a couple of things..

1.) Your Firmware board on your ODD Drive is telling the Drive to spin at a certain speed. The speed its currently spinning at is too slow to read a game, but fast enough to read a DVD disc.

2.) This could also be a motor or laser issue.


I would suggest sending it in for repair. There is nothing you can do without opening it to fix it.

Disc spins excessively fast and program won't start


Take a can of air and blow some air gently into it. Could be a dust problem on the laser. After this then try and load the game again, if it doesn't work still, then its a weak laser and you'll have to get the drive replaced
