Re: xbox360 not reading my games

Maybe you could have a dirty laser lens or a faulty DVD player, try cleaning the lens (with the CD type cleaner) or you may need to replace the DVD drive. Call Microsoft and explain your situation.

When last did you clean the pick up lens on the console?
Sounds like the pick up lens is not reading the disc, any hard collisions on the console recently? If you have the correct lens cleaner at hand I would advise a cleaning asap, see if this solves the issue.

Xbox will not read any game or dvd

It sounds like your DVD drive has failed, this is fairly common. There is a good chance it is still under warranty from microsoft. Give them a call at:


If it is not under warranty you can replace the dvd drive itself, google xbox 360 replacement parts. It's not too difficult if you are technically inclined.

Xbox360 game will not read

If your xbox is modded try a different brand of disc.
Obviously try and clean the disc itself.
Else your dvd drive is faulty and needs to be replaced
