You have to put the key from the old drive into the new one. The Key is the board under the laser. It is specific to your xbox.

My xbox 360 isnt reading any disk i put in


This is, most likely, an issue with the mechanism that tells the XBOX that there is a disc in the drive. This cannot be fixed without turning the unit in to an authorized repair service.

When i put disc in xbox360 it keeps saying clean disc an restart xbox have done this. it saying samething with new game brought today


Your problem on your X-Box may be a faulty disk drive. If there are no other problems while running the system (lost information, red lights) then the most probable cause is a broken Drive.Microsoft can attempt to get the drive fixed/replaced by following the instructions on this page http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/repair/repair-process.aspx if you wish to fix it yourself you can fins many drives on e-bay. Before attempting this however I HIGHLY recommend watching/reading tons of tutorials, you can start here http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=573381

Xbox game will not play on my new xbox 360


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

Xbox 360 disc drive


To april23

what has most likely happened is that the magnet which holds disks in place has dis-lodged and is now stuck to the roof of the dvd drive. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this would be to open up the xbox 360 and open up the dvd drive to fix.

So if you're not confident at this or in doubt in any way I'd contact Microsoft first if it's still under warranty, if not then it's a case of opening up the drive yourself I'm afraid.

Note. Does the drive attempt to spin up when you put a disk in?

Or does it just make small noises then nothing except "open tray" on screen?
