Xbox 360: disk drive

I was playing xbox360 and decided to change games. when i did this the drive opened ,like usual, then closed without me telling it to. I tryed again and again. a few times the game stayed in but it made a scary noise so i took it out and tryed again. fortunately the dashboard still worked. please help me I dont know if its the same problem but i know for a fact its not a disk problem. when i insert a disk my disk drive makes a really funky clunky noise and then doesnt read the disk/spin the disk at all doesnt even really seem to try. No error appears and everything else seems to work.

Try reseting the system in the system settings this, is sometimes caused by an update not downloading and or installing correctly. once you reset to default, try updating  the system on xbox live. if this continues you might have a drive issue. good luck....

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

Xbox will play dvd's,ut when you install game disc it said install in xbox 360 console


this relates to the key of the drive, you only ever get this error when the drive key does not match the motherboard key.
usually when someone has changed the drive of the xbox360 without keeping the original key and without that key, the xbox is just a very expensive DVD player.

All dvd drives in an xbox360 are married to the motherboard. The new dvd drive needs to be flashed with the bin from the old drive in order for it to play games. We can do this for you if your interested email us xbox360fixer@verizon.net

Xbox 360: disk drive


Your system is fine, the disk is a different story. By moving your Xbox 360 the drive does some funky things. The disk probably has some deep grooves around the egde. In future, dont move the 360 or backup your xbox 360 games with http://www.everything4360.com Support Rich
