PROBLEM WITH YOUR XBOX 360 DVD DRIVE.
BUY A NEW ONE. MAKE SURE YOU THE ONE THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH YOU XBOX

FOR EXAMPLE

JUST GOOGLE XBOX THEN THE MODEL OF YOUR XBOX THEN DVD DRIVE.

Wont read games only reads dvds


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/xb360ac.html

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

Hi guys I found out why the disk wont read in my system anyway


Interesting. Not all Xbox 360s use the same type DVD drive. There are at least 3 different brands - Benq, Samsung, and Hatachi. There are various ways of determining this, besides opening the Xbox 360. Based on the drive type, there are different versions of firmware(the software on the drive that communicates with the Xbox 360). Some firmware modifications Microsoft doesn't want consumers to know because it allows the playing of cloned dvds.

Games wont load, dvd's work fine, detects normal xbox games fine, 360 games just come up with the "insert disc into 360 console screen." advice on how to fix?


If you have this error it is because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have heat up. You need to stop the heat.

You can do this by sending it in or if you want a quick fix today you should use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

My xbox 360 dvd-rom drive is opening and closing. when its closed it says opening. n i wont stop to even read the disk. any ideas??


There is a magnet inside your DVD drive that got displaced and is now stuck to the top of the enclosure.

Take your 360 apart and follow this guide to put that magnet back in its place.

Not reading the disk

Benq dvd drives


Ok the problem is all xbox 360 motherboards come with preset keys like a password everyone is different. your origanal benq vad 6038 dvd drive also has the key programed into its sst chip on the pcb (Printed Circut Board) which allows it to work with that motherboard (another way of explaning this is it works the same way as a wireless network anyone can connect to it but you must input the correct password to be able to connect and use the internet)

There is a solution you need to extract the dvd key out of your old dvd drive and inject it into your new one. To do this you will need a few tools
Xbox opening Kit V2

CK3 Pro Connectivaty Kit

Via Sata Pci Card

Jungle Flasher Software.

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.
