My disc drive says play dvd at the dashboard when i have a 360 game in it and when i press play it reads, to play disc put it in a xbox 360 console

Hello, Thanks for using FixYa. If you are encountering this problem it means that your xbox360's dvd lens had gone bad. Lenses have life time. Try to get a DVD lens cleaner disk first then use it on your xbox. If this doesn't solve the problem you will then need to have your lens aligned or changed if aligning doesn't fix the issue. I hope this helps. Thanks and good day. - HotRatchet

Xbox360 will play cds but no games, says onscreen

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.

Sometimes like you mention it will still play CD's though.

Xbox will not read any game or dvd

It sounds like your DVD drive has failed, this is fairly common. There is a good chance it is still under warranty from microsoft. Give them a call at:


If it is not under warranty you can replace the dvd drive itself, google xbox 360 replacement parts. It's not too difficult if you are technically inclined.

Try putting the game in straight. By straight i mean putting the disc in where the xbox 360 logo at the top of the disc goes in the tray towards the xbox360. if that does not work contact microsoft
