I put the disc in and on my tv it says open tray and when I do that and close it it says reading then goes back to open tray.

Hi friend try this:

1) Restart your console.
2) Check for loose cables.
3) Pull out all the cables, and get them back in.
4) Take out the hard-drive, and put it back in. Repeat this 4 times.

if the problem still persists then you need to replace your disc drive.

Hwhat does it mean when it wont read one game but will read another

it means the one that wont read is scratched, dirty or defective, my advice is to clean it if its dirty, get a cd repair kit if its scratched or take it back if its defective.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray

Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

Wont play/read any xbox games

1 dirty lens
2 dirty disc
3 programme error

1 i think the xbox cleans its own lens but check the manual if not get a good lens cleaner.

2 clean the disc always clean your discs after and before you use them.

3 take off your hard drive and any memory cards and reset xbox to factory settings

When a game in placed in the console I get an ''open tray'' message

Just put Halo 3 in the drive, set the 360 to automatically play games on Boot-Up, and reboot it.

Tell me if that works.

Halo 3 disc problems

Microsoft has confirmed that if you have either the heroic or the legendary package that these discs are malfunctioned. I suggest you exchange it from the retailer you bought it from or call in microsoft and they ship you another halo 3 free of charge.
