My old ps2 controller is not working. i used a new controller but it still doesn't work. the new controller was tested on another unit and it works fine. so i guess its the console itself is the...

See if your ps2 controller hub or port is damaged. If any pin is twisted try to get it straight and if you can't fix it, take the console to a service center.

Plays dvd but not games

Any more details then that? I am assuming that you are not the original owner of the Xbox 360? you bought it used?

won't be ebale to try and assist you without more information on the Xbox 360. Has it worked for YOU before? Have you been able to play games on it and it suddenly stopped playing games? Has it been modified? Has it been moved around a lot recently?

Please be specific on your history with the Xbox 360 and we can see what you might have as an issue.

Trying to stream media from pc to xbox 360 but my pc won't connect at the "select source" screen on my xbox 360. I have forwarded all the proper ports...I think.

That is a peculiar device for doing that. It doesn't like some types of files and with video it's got to be VERY delicately encoded or it won't work. You need to have your PC up and running, when you load your xbox (at least with Vista and Windows 7) it should pop up by your clock a bubble saying "Media Extender available" click that and you should get some instructions.

There are multiple reasons why this could be happening. The most odvious would be the disk but you say that it looks fine. Next i would try to reset the xbox hard drive cache which involves a couple steps. "To perform the function, access 'memory' in the system blade, and then highlight the hard drive. Now press: Y, X, X, LB, RB, X, X. The following message should appear: "Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?"" After doing that does it improve the load times in the game? If that doesn't help it is most likely either the drive or the saved game. To test the drive try playing another game. If that works fine and loads at the normal pace then it is your saved game might need to be deleted. (If you have or can get ahold of a memory unit move the saved game to that and then delete it from the hard drive and test it. Afterwards you can then move it back over.) How that helps.
