Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Trouble reading games

My xbox 360 will only read games after they have been reinserted and read over and over again. As many as 10 times. I clean the lens regularly and have no problem with DVD's. There are no noises or error codes.....yet. Is this the foreshadow of worse problems?

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

I put a game in the xbox 360 to let it load up at the main xbox 360 screen where you can mess with your profile and the game loaded up and when I clicked the game to load up so i could play it it said I...


Make sure the disk is clean.
Reinsert and try again.
If it does not try to update again and it tries play the game but does not work and it is not because it cannot read the disk then go to the settings, hard drive and go to "System Cache" and delete.
This will delete all temporary files. Which means all small updates for games will be deleted. I reccomend doing this as it may be an error due to the update being stopped halfway through therefore being unfinished. So the xbox may recognise that the update has been installed but because it is unfinished then it may not be able to start the game.

If this still does not work try disconnecting from the internet as it will not ask for an update and you will be able to play the game without it. If this does not work and the game does not play it may be a problem with the disk.
First I would suggest playing the disk in a friend's xbox. If it still doesn't work, take the disk back to the shop and get it replaced.

My daughters xbox 360 sometimes plays for awhile, and other times says cant read disk when her game will play it either freezes up or just quits then it says cant read disk


hi, how well does your daughter look after her games? if her disk's have scratches on them the xbox will have trouble reading it and will often do this. another cause is that the xbox is old the laser will be worn out and will take ages to load a game.

the 2 solutions are:
1. check the disk, if it is highly scratched go get it cleaned, most gaming stores will do it for a small fee
2. take apart the xbox (only if out of warranty and step-by-step instructions can be found on youtube) and clean it gently with a duster

My xbox 360 is having problems starting up and reading disc


Game Discs will not start automatically. You must start disc games from the Disc
Channel on the Wii Menu screen.
Eject the Game Disc, and turn the power OFF and then ON. Reinsert the disc and try
playing the game again.Check to be sure that the Game Disc is clean and in good condition. If dirty, wipe with a soft cloth, from the center to the outside. Do not wipe with a circular motion.
You can also try using the Wii Lens Cleaning Kit (sold separately) to clean the
internal lens.

Will not read xbox 360 games and will not load


This is a common issue.
1. Make sure your disk is clean. Dirty disk can cause disk reading issues.
2. Clean the drive with a CD/DVD laser cleaner.
3. Replace the laser. You can get a replacement from Ebay for $10-15. Make sure you get the right one for you drive. There are several different models.

Xbox WONT read call of duty 4


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.
