Re: Problem With Xbox 360

You may have a laser problem or a faulty DVD drive, you could try a lens cleaning CD in the console or you could call Microsoft and explain your situation, the DVD is replaceable but it may be more work than you are willing to undertake.

If at all helpful, please rate, thanks!

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games

Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

Hi there,

you will need to take this apart, and look inside the disc drive itself, and most likely tights some screws up as they get loose with the vibrations of the drive

Xbox 360 is acting strangely

This is a known issue with the 360, most likely the cause is that the spindle that holds the disc is loose or completely broken off. As the way the cap for the spindle was made, microsoft used a magnet to hold it in place instead of glue or soldering as most drives would have. This is just another instance of inferior workmanship on their part to save money.

Contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX to get an RMA issued.

Check the region code on the disc. There should be a code around the inside ring of the disc.

Unreadable discs xbox 360

Most likely a DVD drive problem. Call 1-800-4my-xbox and they should take care of it for you...especially if the console is fairly new.
