Re: gc not spinning disk

Maybe the motor is burned out? If it is, you're probably gonna have to get a new console.

How to play movie

first thing you may want to check is to see if your disks play automatically. go to settings>system settings>disc auto start (its about mid way down). make sure that is marked "ON" If its not just press "X" on disc auto start and you should have option to turn it "OFF" and "ON". with that set every time you put in a disc it should auto start.
if that doesn't start automatically the title of your BD should be under VIDEO and it should be the one on the bottom. if it doesn't show up there you should check to make sure the disk is able to be read. try it with another DVD/BD if those show up and your first disk don't than you know you have a faulty disk. hope this helps

I moved my xbox360 while disk spinning in it,the current game doesn't work so good anymore,and now it makes tick-tick noises sometimes when game disks are playing.It reads all disks,theres no problem...

The users manual for the xbox 360 says to never move the console with a game inside. In doing so, you probably knocked the disc off the spindle causing it to grind against the laser and laser assembly. The ticking noise is probably from the motor that moves the laser back and forth across the disc. A spring may have come loose from the motor causing it to click as the screw occasionally slips from the guides. This should not cause a problem, however the plastic inside the motor may wear out causing the "open tray" error after some time in which case a repair will be necessary.

Saintsrow 2 use soft cloft to clean disc i did that it didnt work

I had the same issue with my Saints Row one disk. I simply had to install the game to the HDD to be able to play the game.

When installing the game to HDD it doesn't try to read it the same way as it does when playing directly from the disk. It might take a few times to get the disk readable to install but once it is on the HDD then you only have to have the disk in the tray to play.

I know it is only a work around but the best way that I have found to be able to play games with disk issues.

PS2 Disk won't spin

what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
