When you try to play a DVD game on Xbox 360 it tries to play as a movie?


c on your Xbox 360 console, you may receive an error message. This article presents step-by-step guidance to help you determine whether your disc is playable.
SYMPTOMS When you try to play a disc, you may receive the following error message: Can’t read this DVD.
CAUSE The DVD or game disc may be dirty or damaged. Because the console cannot read the disc well, it may even mistake a game disc for a DVD and report this error. If this problem occurs with multiple discs, even clean and undamaged discs, there may be a problem with your Xbox 360 console.
Note If you receive a different error message, such as one of the following messages, the problem is a different problem:
Error message 1 Can't play DVD. Wrong region code. Error message 2 Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD. If you receive one of these error messages, see the corresponding Knowledge Base article: 907620 While attempting to play a standard DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can't play DVD. Wrong region code" 908645 While attempting to play a DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD"
THINGS TO TRY Here are some things that you can do to try to fix the problem or to determine what caused it.
Determine whether the disc is dirty or damaged Discs that are smudged, scratched, or otherwise damaged cannot be read by the Xbox 360 console. You will want to examine the disc to see whether it has smudges, scratches, or other damage. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Examine the disc for dirt or damage: a. Pick up the disc by its edges. Do not touch the top or bottom surface. b. Examine the shiny side of the disc to make sure that the disc is clean and has no damage.
NoteScratches that follow the curve of the disc are very damaging and prevent a disc from being read. If your disc has even one of these kinds of scratches, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 2. If the disc is dirty, clean the disc by hand: • Use a soft, clean, dry, chemical-free cloth to clean the disc. • Lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 3. After you clean the disc, try to load it in the Xbox 360 console. If the disc still will not load or you receive the same error message, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 4. If the disc is damaged, do one of the following: • Because DVD discs are not game discs and the disc was damaged because of misuse of some type, such as not storing the disc in its case, the only thing that you can do is buy a new one. • If you feel that the disc was damaged by the Xbox 360 console in some way, please contact Xbox Customer Support. To do this, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support/contact

Why wont my Xbox 360 play any games but will play DVD videos?


My boyfriend was having the exact same problem. He was able to use it as a media server, but, no games would play at all. Turns out that the disc drive is broken. It isn't reading discs at all.

How can I make my Xbox games load faster? One of my friends always loads way before us.


You can make games load faster on the Xbox 360 by installing it to your hard drive. Loading times are reduced because reading from pre-installed content on a hard drive is way faster than reading from a DVD disc. Installing is easy. Go to the dashboard, and scroll to where you would normally start the game from. But instead of pressing A to play the game, press Y on it and you should have the option to install it.

My xbox work read copy games or originals


Did you try to flash the X-BOX drive with the j-tag exploit, if yes then it must have not run successfully , if you have not dont do it as it will just ruin your console if you donot know what you are doing. Try using a Cd-Lens cleaner as your DVD-Lens might be dirty and could be a cause. Does the disk spin when it is inserted into the drive ?

Clear your system cacheIf your Xbox 360 console can't play multiple game discs, try clearing your system cache. Here's how:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Memory.
  3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
  4. Select Clear System Cache.

    Note If Clear System Cache is not available, follow the steps in Clearing the System Cache (http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/hardware/clear-system-cache.aspx) .
  5. Try to play a game disc.

Disconnect memory units or USB flash drives
  1. Turn off your console.
  2. Unplug any memory units or USB flash drives attached to your console.
  3. Turn on your console.
  4. Try playing a game.
If all these fail try this

My red dead redemption game will not read when I put in the disc. It keeps saying Play DVD.


Did you purchase the game brand new or pre-owned? or is it a knock off copy? i only ask about the knock off copy idea because members of the military can aquire such things quite easily.

A Game I bought will not work.


Check the inside ring of the disc for a v shape deformation or cracks. also look for dimples. That is usually the problem with some older 360 games.

I have just bought a brand new game and it has taken about 30 attempts to even load it kept saying open tray. Has loaded updates but when i get the play game on menu it then tells me to re-boot or clean...


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1. Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser. The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is... with all the hours and hours of gameplay, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/xb360ac.html

3. Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything, including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock. The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

My xbox 360 has the 2 redlights on it how do I fix it


I had the same problem when playing the game, Crackdown, since this game uses the CPU and GPU (chips) very, very heavily. The 2 red lights mean that your system is overheating. Check the Microsoft site to see if your system is still under warranty. If so, call Microsoft and see if they can repair the known and admitted flaw(s) with the Xbox 360 and its cooling issues. You may need to have the "three red rings" issue to take advanage of this free repair though. If the system is out of warranty and you will have to pay to have it repaired by Microsoft, you might as well save a lot of money and do a similar cooling fix yourself. You can start by first searching Youtube for "Taking apart an Xbox 360", "How to fix your Xbox 360" and "Red Ring of Death". You may also be able to search Craigslist for people that will repair and upgrade your Xbox 360 for you, at about $30 to $50 or so.

In case someone is reading this post and having trouble only when playing the game Crackdown, note that this game plays heavily from the DVD and will have many loading issues and lock-ups if the DVD-ROM drive is bad or going bad. You can always test your game disc on another XBOX 360 to see if it is the disc or your system. Game stores will usually help you as well with testing a disc if you bring it in.
Also, try other intensive games to see if they load and play well. This will prove that your system is probably good, but that it most likely is the DVD-ROM drive that is failing.
If you have a game other than Crackdown that locks up, slows down, etc during DVD-ROM play, try copying that disc to the Xbox 360 hard drive and playing it from there to see if it still locks up or slows down as before. This will show you if the DVD-ROM drive is bad or if it is something else in the system.
Unfortunately, Crackdown can not be copied to the hard drive. This was planned by Microsoft. It is not allowed for some reason.

Xbox 360 arcade pal game read error


You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.
