Generally you can put things on top of a console while its on. Just absolutely do not I repeat DO NOT pick up the console and rotate it while its on. This will often "eat" discs by scratching them. But if you set something ontop of it it should be fine as long as it is not obstructing the rear fan vents. The 360 while plastic on the outside has a sturdy metal cage on the inside that should be easily able to support a DVD player on top of it. I would not reccomend multiple heavy things ontop of it though.

SOURCE: to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.

when this happens, it either symbolizes that somehow, your tsop32 chip has corrupted in your dvd drive and has lost the dvd key, or you (someone) has attempted to flash the firmware on the dvd drive and it has ended in a failure and destroyed the initial firmware. basicly, if you have your dvd key, you can try to reflash the drive with working firmware (tutorials can be found everywhere) or, if you have warrenty left, send it in. if all else fails, find a person who knows how to disassemble an xbox 360 + dvd drive, desolder the tsop32 chip, and rip the firmware. this can be costly though, and you'll need a new dvd drive afterwords if your old one gets broken in the process. and if you can't get the dvd key, well, your 360 is now an expensive dvd player.

best of luck

I have 2 red flashing rings on my xbox can i fix this without sending the console to MS?

Ah, this simply means it overheated, try moving it away from anything that would block heat from escaping the console, and give it a break. Try putting it in a cooler environment, but not to cold. Just make sure it doesn't get to hot.
Glad to help! :)

Can not read anything in disk drive

Usually after having an Xbox 360 for a while, the "eye," or device that reads disks may ware down and break, or may just be dirty. This is the most common reason for the console to be unable to read any disks. I would contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX for support involving repairing the console, or another retailer to find a CD that could possible clean the eye.

weel you see i had the same problem, and it is because of the heatsinc unit in your x box over heating not your xbox. you can send it back to microsoft if you have a warrenty and they will fic it, or you can do what i did but my warrenty was out of date, i opend up my xobox and reversed the cooling fans, you can find ou thow to open your xbox on you tube or google it, but when you do get it open take the big white plastic piece out open the tabs for the cooling fans and reverse it so the air blows on the inside. i did this and my xbox is working like it was new. only do this if your xbox is out of warrenty though. i am not responisble for what you do to your xbox. this is just a suggestion.

2 red rings of light appear on my 360 every time I turn it on. I am aware this is an overheating problem but what should I do to stop it?

THINGS TO TRY loadTOCNode(1, 'whattotry'); 1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section. 3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support ( Web site. uparrow.gifBack to the top
MORE INFORMATION loadTOCNode(1, 'moreinformation'); To try to prevent this problem, use the following precautions: • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console. • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings. • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated. • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier. If these solutions do not work for you, best to contact Xbox support at to talk to a live agent. :)
