I turn on my xbox 360 and a screen pops up and says "can't find the update disk. please reinsert the disc.'' and i got the hardwaire but i insert the disc and it wont read it and it says...


Go to xbox.com/Support and download the latest update, then update manually with USB

IF your system is modified with a custom firmware then you need to upgrade to the latest firmware in order to bypass your update loop.

Thank you

My xbox 360 reads my xbox games as dvds. i can play dvds in it, but every time i put in a game the dvd play options pop up instead of game settings. I was wondering if there was a simple setting solution...


This is an uncommon problem with Xbox 360's, but I have heard of it before. I know of a few possible fixes:
  1. Eject the game you're trying to play so your drive is empty.
  2. Turn on your console.
  3. Insert the disc and see what happens.
Xbox 360's do not have the greatest DVD drives on the planet, no doubt. Another thing you could do is to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet and be sure you have the latest firmware update. This might remedy the problem. As soon as your 360 is connected, it will automatically detect if an update is needed and it will tell you it wants to download it without you having to do anything.
If neither of these work, chances are you'll need to contact Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX for technical support. If you're lucky, you're still under warranty.

Will read blank dvds but will not read prerecorded dvds or burn onto blank dvds. I have upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7, I keep getting a firmware error.


download this program
http://www.freecodecs.net/fc/ImgBurn_2.5.5.0.zip

install it and run it
its a disc copying software but the reason i am saying to download it is that it will update your firmware for you

click write file to disc, then click on tools then move to drive then go to the last option on the new menu that says Check for Firmware Updates, click ok then click on the numbers listed below version( pick the one that is the latest) this will download the firmware file. extract the files from the downloaded zip and open the installer allow it to finish then click finish or exit. then restart your pc. Now try your dvd

Xbox 360 will only read dvds shows reading dvd


This means the DVD key went bad. If you flashed your firmware or have a jtag, this is an easy fix, but otherwise I would check craigslist or call Microsoft

360 wont load games just goes to 360 screen


This means that your console was not updated with the latest firmware to read Wave 4 games. To update your console, you have to join and sign in to Xbox Live and the system wuill automatically acquire an update to enable wave 4 games to run. Hope this helps.

New xbox 360 games wont work


Can you connect to XBOX Live to get firmware updates??
I assume you always update when the game gives you the oppurtunity, these updates include playability issues, glitches, etc.

My xbox dont play games it just plays dvds how do i fix it


1. Make sure your game discs are all clean, free of scratches, etc.

2. Test multiple games to ensure that it isn't isolated to just one or two discs

3. Unplug your 360, wait a few minutes, plug it back in, and attempt it again (full power cycles sometimes help these strange issues.)

4. Ensure you have the latest firmware upgrade (you'll need to connect the 360 to the Internet to download the latest upgrade.)

Also, if your 360 is modified in any way, this could affect your ability to play game discs, depending on the settings and the type of modification.

If above given steps do not work, kindly send yor Xbox 360 to MS support, and do not try to flash your drive at home, it would void your warranty

Hardrive reading disks error


2 Things can cause this: 1) if its a MODDED drive then the firmware on the drive might need to be updated. 2) the firmware Key in the drive doesnt match the xbox console's key... ie. the drive has been swapped with a different one.
