A Game I bought will not work.


Check the inside ring of the disc for a v shape deformation or cracks. also look for dimples. That is usually the problem with some older 360 games.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

My xbox won't read disk, nothing is wrong with the disks.


The reason that this happens is because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated.

When you overheat the Xbox it realligns the motherboard and the soldering gets supple again and will work for a little while, however this will not be permanent.

You will need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a proven Xbox 360 Repair guide

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.
