Its most likely your Blu-ray len. Try cleaning it with a Cd cleaner. If the problem remains do a system restore, if still no luck you will need to contact sony as they can replace your console.

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

Open tray error


You need to either replace the drive with a working drive or replace the laser within your current drive. If you change drives you will first need to obtain your dvd-key and then flash it into your new drives firmware.

Same problem


If you have a flashed Xbox 360 it could be that the new game has a protection called Wave3.

That protection makes the games to run as a DVD if the speed of the dvd is not 12X.

Because when you got a flashed DVD, your dvd doesn´t play games and dvds at 12X speed.

That makes that wave3 is feeling a higher or lower speed than it should be and blocking it and says Play DVD. Exactly the problem you got.

- PS2 memory card

you copied the DVD disc to the memory card. you used the memory card to play DVDs.

later models didn't need the memory card to play DVDs.

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.

I have had a similar problem. I insert a game and it sais to insert it into a xbox 360 console.

This usually happens after I have been playing a dvd in the console.

Restarting console with game in it has been fixing issue.
