Well there we have it again look this is a world wide problem and the reason for this **** is the cd dvd player embeded in the 360 u see the player is **** as because when u start a game or a movie the cd or dvd wobbles a lot thus it either gets stuck or does not work at all lol this is an orientation problem of the player well  the solution is simple just call the guys at microsoft and after nagging a bit they will agree to replace it dont try to open it or that chance will also be gone and oh yes they replace the old ones with refurbished or repaired ones lol

Everytime i put a disc in my xbox it reads dvd. I got to keep ejecting it and closing it back to make it read the game . Pleasee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! help me


Just to make certain it's not a burnt game on a modded/flashed xbox then more likely your optical dvd drive on the DVD player for the xbox 360 is going out. The lens and laser can be acting up inside and the only way to fix this is to replace the optical dvd drive. You can remove the optical drive and it has 4 screws. You carefully remove the chip inside and transfer to new xbox 360 optical drive which by the way has to be the exact same model to work properly. There are detailed instructions on youtube on how to remove and replace a xbox 360 dvd player.

If my xbox 360 elite keeps telling me to open and its not reading


Replace the drive in the 360. The laser isn't reading the games properly. You could also try replacing the laser as well but replacing the drive is easier.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games but reads dvds


Your laser is bad in the drive. When it comes to reading games, DVd's, music cds, it requires a different strength from the laser in your dvd rom in order to read them. If it can't read all types then the laser is definitely bad and you can either replace just the laser or the whole drive.
