Try replacing the disk and see if that works! If not it might be your laser and you shouldn't try to do that your self you can actually damage the system more. I sent mine to and got it back within the same week at a great price! Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: xbox 360 scratching my discs

this happened to me too with the godfather. the scratch is almost perfectly circular and now i cant play it anymore either. i called the xbox people and they said it was the game. no more of my games have been scratched. maybe you should have your xbox serviced by the people.

SOURCE: my xbox 360 doesn't play my games

Hey guys this is what I did. I took out the game so it doesn't scratch, turned off the Xbox 360. and then (I put my 360 horizontal [laying down]) I smacked the top of it a couple times. When I put the game back in it worked perfectly fine. I hope this works for you guys works :)

I have a Pioneer pd-m450 that will play disks just fine on random mode but if you try to play it from just one disk the cds will skip and not play?

I think there are some disks with MP3 or other sorts of audiofiles.
If the radio does not support these it wil skip it.
If you set it random, the system will search for files it can play.

I recently bought the kinect and it worked fine at first. However ive come to play it tonight but its asking for a system update. I dont have xbox live, is there another way to get this sorted?

it is possible to get the updated dashboard without connecting to xbox live, you need to have the KINECT sensor, attach it with all components and insert KINECT ADVENTURES(which is the update), wait for the process to complete... abbra cadabbra i own 1 modded offline non-banned 360 and 1 stock online 360 both with new dashboard update

When I play World At War and Left 4 Dead on Xbox live my game, after about 5 minutes begins to skip. Then I am kicked out of the game and the game lobby says closed. Then I go back in an play again and...

You have a firewall port that need to be opened. You will have to open them. I had to do this once. Call xbox @ 1-800-4my-xbox and tell them the problem. The will give you the most common port numbers to open. If you don't know how to do this they maybe able to help you with it. If not you have to call you ISP (internet service provider) and they can walk you thru it. Thats exactly how I did it.

My xbox dashboard.

did you attempt to mod this? have you done anything with this. people dont give real specifics because theyre embarassed or dont think to include this. your problem could be that you disrupted a xbox dash update or you screwed with the dashboard yourself modding the xbox. i cant give you a clearer answer tho due to the info provided. please next time try to be more detailed. so a better more accurate answer can be given to your problem.

Problem with xbox 360

I'm not sure if you've sorted this already but the 360 will go straight to the dashboard if you have it set up to start that way, you can set the console to automatically run games by going into the 'system' blade of the dashboard and choosing 'start up'.

Hope this helps (although may be a little late)

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
