Hey,

That's a laser issue. Your laser has gone bad and/or the whole DVD drive. To fix this problem it has to be opened up.


If you need help with that, update your question :)

My xbox is not reading any of my discs. it just reads open tray. when we close it again it says reading and then goes back to open tray. can you help?


Hi,the most common reason for the Games not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!

Take care.

All my discs dont work


Yes this is getting more and more common it happens because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated, to fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

To do this use a good guide or send it in.

Xbox not recognizing disc


please consult to xbox technician.there is nothing you can do because your laser or lens which read your disc probably either dirty or damages...if it is dirty, i suggest you to buy disc that has a tiny brush attach onto that disc...but if it damages,well............nothing u can do other than send it for service...

1 i think the xbox cleans its own lens but check the manual if not get a good lens cleaner.

2 clean the disc always clean your discs after and before you use them.

3 take off your hard drive and any memory cards and reset xbox to factory settings

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

CD's, DVD's work but not games..just shows insert disc


Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
