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

My xbox 360 reads dvds but not games


If oyu have had it for a long time or its old the laser on the DVD drives eventually burn out from too much use. The games require a more precise laser to read it while DVDs are easier to read.

If you have a original xbox game try that. If it works it must be the laser.

Wont read discit sometimes says games are DVDS and it will began a game but often says its dirty


Turn the XBOX on it's side (horizontal instead of vertical) and see if the issue gets better or goes away completely. If you already have it flat, lift the device slightly, open the tray, wiggle it a little bit, and retract it.If either of these make the issue better, then your drive is messed up, you'll have to replace it.

This is common issue, the drives in the XBOX are cheap and people are hard on them since unlike a computer, everything requires the DVD drive.

If your Xbox 360 will not read your games this can be because the chips on the back of the DVD drive have overheated to fix it you will need to send it in or use a good guide to stop the heat build up

My xbox360 reads dvds but not games. when i put a game in, it goes to a white screen with the xbox logo


This error is caused by not having the original DVD drive in your 360. Only a professional can change your DVD drive successfully. You will need the original DVD drive to fix this problem. Without the original drive your Xbox won't be playing disc based games again. A skilled professional with the original DVD drive should be able to fix your problem.

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

Bought new dvd drive benq 6038


LOL well 9 months later, I'll answer your question. EVERY Xbox360 dvd drive is "married"to it's motherboard. The communication between the drive and motherboard is encrypted with a key (aka- DVD-key) IF you don't flash the dvd-key from the original drive to the replacement then there is no way the Xbox will ever be able to play anythngg other than music and dvds. You NEED the correct key to encrypt/decrypt the 360 games so the motherboard can understand it.

Xbox360 reading dvds only


If you have never opened your Xbox 360 case you can go to http://service.xbox.com and have it repaired. It might even be under warranty since microsoft has extended their warranty on the 360's. It sounds like the cd portion of the laser is bad. This is common in game consoles like xbox and sony playstations.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games but reads dvds


Your laser is bad in the drive. When it comes to reading games, DVd's, music cds, it requires a different strength from the laser in your dvd rom in order to read them. If it can't read all types then the laser is definitely bad and you can either replace just the laser or the whole drive.
