Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Will not load games

Driver does not spin when a game is put in but will play dvd's and music cd's. The error says enter an xbox 360 game or does nothing at all just says open console. I have cleared all profiles and re booted, i have taken the console apart and made sure the wheel is not sticking and have used an expensive laser cleaner system to try and rectify this problem but it continues to get worse and is now not loading games 100% of the time.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd


By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games

Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

try putting a DVD movie, or A music CD in.
this will eliminate a faulty DVD Drive, or laser fault.

Disk reading error


this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.

That's weird, if the Xbox needs a driver it should be installed or come on a Cd.

So the games don't play ?

Call support and threaten that you'll bring it back, it'll get them to help better.

Try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive, and make sure the game cd does not have scratches.
