Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Rented games (perfect condition even) wont play. period.

I am having the same problem as you guys. Only games rented from Blockbuster won't work. The rented games have little to no scratches, but don't work....while other games which have the radial scratches work just fine.

No matter how long I try, I cannot even get it to recognize what game it is. If would hold out long enough, I would just install it to the hard drive.

Most of the new game disk have security feture to prevent copy. if some one rented and copyed its toast. The console picks this up and will not play it. If you can find some one to mod your console that will get past the security feture it should work but you lose the warnty

I rented a game from family video. disc plays with sound but the picture is scrambled. all other games work just fine as well as the homescreen.


Hello,

You said all other games work fine on your video game apart from the one you rented from Family Video. I think the game you rented is not compatible with your video game.

Take the game back to Family video, return the game and collect another one. Or test the game with scrambled picture on a friend or family's game and observe if it's going to play with the scrambled picture or not.

This is to verity if the problem is from the game or from the disc. But from my own point of view, I think the game disc is incompatible with the video game........

Let me know if this is contrary to your question....

Regards.

I have a 40GB ps3 and when i put mlb 10 the show in from blockbuster(rented)the ps3 did not read the disc, although it does read DVDs and has internet access working. What should I do?


Blockbuster "Cleans" their DVDs/BlueRay Discs/Etc....

.......Using a Buffer-type device to basically rub all the scratches off........
and fill them in as well.........

........So.........

Just take the disc back and ask for a new or better copy to rent........they won't charge you again and they'll extend your rental days to accomodate your inconvenience.
That Should Solve The Problem!

Please Rate Me & fill out a quick testimonial, k.

Thank You! I appreciate it.

The blueRay Disk that we rented from Blockbuster does not play in PS3. When we take it out... there is a line across the disk


OK, take it back to blockbuster and get another copy. Tell them that it was like that when you received it ;)

I have played mainly blue ray on my ps3 now that i have a new game rented from block buster it says the game is encrypted


Go to blockbuster and tell them they rented you an encrypted copy which indicates it's fake. explain EVERYTHING you did to avoid a charge/fine. the last person to rent it probably screwed it up somehow.

New dvd movie will not play


I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
ENHANCED FEATURES
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.

Can't read disc


Possibly a bad, or more likely, a damaged disc.

It's not uncommon, especially with often abused rental copies.

Tell Blockbuster - they should give you a credit on the rental.
