Samsungs used to be the best drives but i do like the benq, it sounds like you need your laser either adjusting or replacing. from what you have described i would say you could get away with adjusting the pots. they are little scres on the laser itself that regulate the power. most lasers are set to say 3.4-4.2 but i would say an optimum would be 2.9-3.0. if you adjust the pots to that i think all the games would then work.
i realise a lot of people might not understand what im saying so i do have a guide that is easy to follow. just email me if you need any more advice.

My xbox 360 wont play a xbox game even though it is on a compatible list. It is saying that the hard drive may be disconnected. It is playing 360 games fine. Any advise would be great


To play regular Xbox games on the 360, you MUST have an internet connection when you start up the game, to download the compatibility patch from XBL. Once you have the patch you won't need the internet to play the game from then on.

Have you got your 360 on live? The reason i ask is because if not it may be the case that you need to get an update from xbox live before you can play the game even though its on the compatible list. Also it might be that you need an xbox memory card (Not a 360 one though)
Hope this helps

Xbox 360 wont play games


If your Xbox 360 will not read your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive taking too much heat.

You need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a good guide

I borrow games from one of my freinds chris and his games wont work in my xbox 360 so I tried them in another freinds xbox 360 and they still dont work. The games only work in chris's xbox 360 only.


Hi,

His console is either chipped or the DVD drive has been modded to be able to play backups.

Meaning the games are backups and not original games.

Thanks

Why cant i play any xbox games on my xbox 360


There could be a few reasons:

1: The game is not able to be played on the xbox 360. Only certain games can be played on the xbox 360. Go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/askxbox.aspx and type in "original xbox games". It should pop up with a list of games that can be played on the xbox 360.

2: Your family settings do not allow you to play original xbox games. Go to the control panel and look at the settings.

1st reason: macs cannot deal with all the data at once and would die.
2nd reason: there is no software as of yet to rip games without having the correct kreon drive or a 360 drive plugged into a pc.
3rd reason:i dont think macs an run 360 backup creator.
