The box boots and i get the selection list for music, network play, etc but not games. I put in halo or other games that formerly played and a screen pops up saying it does not recognize this as an Xbox disc. Can you help?

When it says play dvd, it just randomly doesn't recognize that it's a game. Press A and you'll enter the game. When it doesn't recognize the disc all together, I'd suggest cleaning the disc with an anti-static cloth then putting the disc back in.
If you have flashed your xbox 360 with 1.61 firmware, have you got the Wave 4 patch disc, lot of currently released games need this disc to be run first before you run the copied games,you can check on google for the updated list of Wave 4 copy protection enabled games.
If you face problem with all copied game discs, even for older ones like Gears of War 2, Halo 3 etc then you should get the drive checked with the person from whom you have got your Xbox 360 modded
That is an odd problem. It sounds like you maay need to change the laser or the dvd rom assembly if its reading only one game, yet all the games it wont read are working ok in another console. If i was you id simply replace the DVD rom drive, making sure its the same version as the original from the unit. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with
your fingers. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the center
outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc. Examine the disc

Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.
try going to your xbox system settings and press A, then click on your memory Icon and when you see a selection that says Storage Devices and in that area you see your hard drive, on the bottom there is a button that says device options. click on the device options by pressing Y and then press in this exact order Y,X,X, LB, RB, X, X. The xbox will then ask you if you would like to perform maintenance on you Xbox 360. Click on Yes and it will perform a check and service on your hard drive. I do not know exactly what it will check but I do know that it will cause the system to have to redo the updates for each game. This might help by clearing problems that an update may have had. And it will reinstall the updates as you put the games back in. No harm to your system nor the warrenty.
Only certain Xbox games such as Halo 1 and 2 will play on the Xbox 360, there is a full list on microsft's website somewhere. to play these games your Xbox has to have a hard drive, and it must be on this list.
