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.

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

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games


The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

Xbox 360 reading error


Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
