This is 99% of the time caused by a bad laser. The reason is games are read at 8X speed. Dvds are always read at 1X-2.4X speeds. When the laser has to work more it fails. You can find a replacement laser on ebay for under $15. With too many video tutorials on youtube to count.

This is more than likely your laser that is dead or dying and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be
careful when buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage
your machine or at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

It could also be the logic board or the drive belt too, if the logic board is faulty no matter how many lasers
you try it will do the same, the fix is to replace the logic board.

if its the drive belt well this is very easy to try and is what id try first, open your 360 tray and look
inside the 360 you should be able to see the drive belt, make sure its attached properly and then take this
out. replace it with a new one and see if this recifies your problems.

SOMETIMES if a drive belt is stretched it will not close properly and then a fault like yours will occur. its
all a matter of eliminations. Drive belts can be found on ebay.

Hmm did you try to mod it? If you have a bad flash or the wrong flash, your xbox will now be an expensive dvd player. The DVD player on your box has a key that is actually "married" to your motherboard. No other key will work. If this was the case, perhaps who ever flashed it still has your key, and could re flash its to the original state.

SOURCE: xbox iam looking at will play dvds. and xbox1

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

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.

Registers games as dvds


Your DVD drive is Failing, Time for a replacement
You should call Microsoft to see if your xbox360 is under warranty.

1 year warranty comes with xbox360.

if not then a fee will be applied to the cost, anywhere form 75 and up.

Good Luck
