Send it too microsoft. I know that sucks but they will fix it for free. It is a common issue and they are aware of it. Call 1800MICROSOFT and set it up.

My xbox 360, Reads To play this disc put in xbox 360 console! How can i fix it?

I recommend clearing your system cache. To do this go to My Xbox > System Settings > Memory, highlight your storage disk, press Y and select "clear cache." Try to run the disk again. If the Xbox is still failing to properly read the disk I suggest bringing it to a gaming store near you and have them put a new drive in it. This is most definitely a hardware error, and has nothing to do with your disks.

My xbox 360 wont read any disk, what do i do?

If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

Fixed unplayable disk error but now i get told to put disk in an xbox 360 console

Lol then no sir you did not fix it. Sorry.
"to play this disc, please put it in an Xbox360" error is caused by one of two things.
1) Dead/Dying laser- Replace it or try to adjust the variable resistor on the laser lens. (USE a micrometer on the 20k setting and a 1.8mm flathead)
2) Incorrect drive key- If you "fixed" your initial problem by buying a new dvd drive, and putting it into the console. You no longer have the correct dvd key to match the Xbox360 motherboard. IF both drives are the same brand. You can simply remove the green pcb from the old drive and put it into the new drive. (be CAREFUL with the ribbons!!) If you did purchase a new drive, and already threw away the old drive, you're screwed the Xbox will NEVER play a game again, unless you download it from Xbox Live.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

XBOX 360 - Please p[lace disk in a XBoX 360 console

There is probably a defective part causing the problem, you should call Microsoft and can probably get it fixed for free if that is he case.

360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.

You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

Put this in an xbox 360 console

Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
