    i am having the same problem, however, i am using the same cd/dvd drive that came with the system. The system runs games from harddrive and reads discs. The system does not recognize xbox 360 games and requests that a 360 game be inserted. Any one have any tips?

My xbox 360 plays games as dvds!?


I doubt you put all your games :). your XBOX 360 is probably hacked to play homebrew games. that happens when usually a new protection is enabled on newer games, every several months new protection is issued to restrict piracy. the only thing is to get it hacked with a newer DVD-ROM security override.

Every time i put a game in my xbox it reads open tray


This sound like the same problem that i was having, The DVD-ROM Drive that plays the Games/DVDs does not see that the game or dvd is in. i was told if you gently hit the top where you put the game in the rom you can not down the magnet the see tells the console that the game is in. Do this at you own risk, or just send it back to Microsoft if you still have a warrenty.

My xbox 360 wont play my games


if it tells you the disc is unreadable then the laser maybe bad or dirty.
try a cd lens cleaner and see if it solves the problem. if it doesn't then your dvd rom will need to be replaced

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games


The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

Won't read games


If you swap drives from another xbox 360 will not work unless its the same dvd drive thats why your 360 plays cd's and dvd's only !!1

360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.


You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

Pick up in the DVD is bad or weak and will need replacing.
Or replace the whole DVD unit.

Make sure the disks are clean and not too scratched up
