This is a problem the microsoft has been working on ... remove any disc from the tray> unplug it from all power the plug it back in> open the disc tray .. leave it open for a little while like 10-15 seconds .. then put the game in and it should work .. if it does not however you have one of the defected disc trays and you'll need to get it repaired by microsoft .. i know its not what you want to hear but hey at least they will fix it free of charge =]

Wont play games only plays movies

In regards to you XBOX not playing games most likely the laser for game playing burned out.

On alot of the XBOXs they had a dual laser. One laser for DVD's and the other on for playing games.

Hope this helps

My xbox plays cds/movies but not games. what do i do?


Have you recently tried to flash this xbox??


Anywho, your laser needs changing. Its giving off the signal to your motor and your motor isn't spending fast enough to play a game. Games require a higher RPM to read while movies require a lower RPM.


Your laser and/or motor needs changing. Send it in for repair.

Unable to read any disc or play them


Your Xbox 360 has a three year warranty from the time of purchase. You can set up a free repair within that window right here.
