All you need to do is find an xbox dvd drive on the net (ebay trademe etc) and install it yourself. Very easy and in expensive. Or take it to an xbox modifier and he will fix it, but for around 50 dollars.

My xbox plays dvd and cds but not games what can i do ?

This is a classic sign of people not knowing what they are doing before replacing dvd drives. if the thing hasn't been opened, ask microsoft. if it has, ask the guy who opened it. If a drive is not replaced correctly, it will not read games.

Xbox 360 is making grinding noises

H there,

I have made a tutorial for all those people having problems with their discs, such as;
•Dirty Disc Errors
•Games crashing half way through , due to reading problems
•Discs sometimes loading, and sometimes not being recognised
•the classic "OPEN TRAY" problem
•and also glitching FMV or slow loading games (some games are just slow, its normal so be patient)

Please remember to test the disc on another console to ensure you have burnt it correctly. This is so you dont go and adjust the pot when its actually ok.

Hope it works.

My xbox is not recognizing any disks (games, DVD, music)

Sounds like the classic failing laser frequency problem. If you are any good at dismantling Xbox the DVD frequency potentiometer needs turning clockwise bout an eigth of a turn to increase the read frequency thus making discs readable once more.
Check out laser reading problems for Xbox on the net this is well documented

Disc Reader not reading disc

You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!
