It might be easier to replace the drive. But remember the old drive is married to the motherboard and you will have to extract the bin from the old drive and write it to the new one in order for games to be played. We can replace the drive for you if your interested.

The only discs that work with my x box is fuel fallout 3 and left for dead 2, now today we just got gta 4 and borderlands. used, but still in good shape. none will work. and barely another game will. how...

If you have a nearby friend who also has the x box,I would try your games on their system first.It sounds kind of strange to need a laser eye.Usually a laser eye works or does not work.For it to not read a couple but work with a couple others is strange.If you have disassembled it before,you may need to clean the laser eye which is the only time that stuff should really be used and no other time other than person has disassembled themselves.If this is the case,your games will all work on your friends(or gamestop).If only a couple work on theirs too,then it is the games.If they all work on your friends,and you haven't taken yours apart,then it needs a laser eye.Did I confuse you???I am lol. Good luck! Greg
P.S.I used to work on Nintendos full time.

The console is not reading the disks. It is as if

You can try removing the cover, find the glass laser eye and clean it with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. If cleaning doesn't help, then the laser circuit itself may need to be replaced.

PS2 Laser

It sounds like the main issue is not reading dvd's, you can try to dis-assemble the unit and clean the eye of the laser with a cotton bud or cue tip, if that doesnt solve the issue you may need to replave the laser assembly, which is the casing that contains the laser eye,the spindle motor and the sled mechanism that the laser uses to move whilst reading. Although i had the same issue a few years ago , i was unable to source a laser as they were no longer being made, but they are still available form other spare parts providers. Good luck.

Sony PlayStation 2 - Does not read CD

IT IS THE EYE. the eye th the little shiny piece that you can bairly see once the tray comes might have put a disk in at a wrong position and scratched the eye. replacing it might be what to do, but i would check first.

Disk dont read anything>>>!!!

If U want U can Buy a Laser Eye Cleaner from your local department store. The cleaner is a cd/disc and it
has small brushes located on it. This will make several passes over the Eye/Laser and this should clean
it. If the Problem is still present, then U need to open up the case and clean the Eye with a Q-Tip and a Liquid solution "Laser Eye Cleaner"

If U find this Helpful Please feel free to rate my help!

Is it all of your disks or just that one? If it is just one disk then you should try and clean the disk. If it is all of the disks then you may have a dirty laser eye and need to get a dvd cleaner, I personally recommend the phillips brand dvd cleaning kit. It should be a disk cleaner and a cd/dvd cleaning system for the laser eye. It usually runs under 15 dollars. If this doesnt work then your system is shot and you should replace it.

Disk wont spin

are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol

Allright this has happened to me in the past but yes your most likely right its probably the laser. and im really hoping you didn't truly try to clean the laser otherwise you now have to go out and see if your problem is the laser if not by you attempting to clean now is the problem
