    Is this happening with any games or dvds that you put into the drive?

Our game appears to have a scratch on it and won'at work


Hi there,

I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.

Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).

Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.

"
  1. Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
  2. Scroll down to My Xbox
  3. Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
  4. This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
  5. On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance."

I put a game in the xbox 360 to let it load up at the main xbox 360 screen where you can mess with your profile and the game loaded up and when I clicked the game to load up so i could play it it said I...


Make sure the disk is clean.
Reinsert and try again.
If it does not try to update again and it tries play the game but does not work and it is not because it cannot read the disk then go to the settings, hard drive and go to "System Cache" and delete.
This will delete all temporary files. Which means all small updates for games will be deleted. I reccomend doing this as it may be an error due to the update being stopped halfway through therefore being unfinished. So the xbox may recognise that the update has been installed but because it is unfinished then it may not be able to start the game.

If this still does not work try disconnecting from the internet as it will not ask for an update and you will be able to play the game without it. If this does not work and the game does not play it may be a problem with the disk.
First I would suggest playing the disk in a friend's xbox. If it still doesn't work, take the disk back to the shop and get it replaced.

    I put game disc into xbox it wont play but keeps telling me to open tray


    its an error, it sounds silly but put the disk in and when it says reading hit the xbox on the vents by the harddrive. if this doesn't work try a few other games, once one works put the one you originally wanted to play back in.

    Xbox 360 comes on dashboard pops up but wont go to the game


    If you have uploaded the updates, this happens all the time. you must go to "my xbox" option and there will be a disc there. Hit "A" and it will play the disc.
