Sounds like it needs a new lens for the dvd drive. Fairly common problem. Easy fix by finding out what kind of drive you have, ordering a new part (i would suggest ebay) and there are many many good tuts on how to replace the lens.

If you have a flash drive, go to your pc and download the songs onto your flash drive and plug it in to your xbox.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

My xbox 360 drive wont read games it will only dvds and cds


Your laser either needs to be cleaned or is going bad. I have seen this many times before. Try taking the drive apart and cleaning the laser aperture with 91% alcohol and a cotton swab (carefully). If that doesn't work then you need to replace the laser (or get a new drive).

Unable to read any disc or play them


Your Xbox 360 has a three year warranty from the time of purchase. You can set up a free repair within that window right here.

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.

New disc dive maybe


Hi,

Does this do it to every game?

I would seriously try to just replace the console call 1800-4my-xbox and see what they can do.
