Re: x box

You could try to do this just unplug every thing including harddrive and let it sit for thrity seconds and plug it back in. If same issue happens call Microsoft.

It only plays Normal Xbox games

The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

My X box wont play anything..... it says ''unplayable disc''

The DVD rom is probably on its last legs.  Call support and see what they can do for you.  I don't think this is covered under the extended warranties, and it will probably cost you money to fix if its is out of warranty.
Mine did this to me and I am in the middle of trying to repair it myself.  
My suggestion is put it in a enclosed cabinet so that it overheats and redrings so you can send it back.

I started to have the same problem with my box as well... If you know how to take your xbox drive out of the 360 then do so and open it up... if its the problem you'll immediatly notice that the black ring that spins the disk itself is stuck to the top of the casing... its magnetic so just pull it off and superglue up it back to its base and it should fix your problem

My x box 360 says it is an unplayable disc but was prevoisly playing fine.this has happended before and after a couple of day rest it seemed to work fine again. what the problem ? cheers nig

Ok, I have had this problem multiple times.....This is the solution, Put your xbox 360 laying down NOT straight up, That Straight up design is supposed to work and look cool, but it can laser burn the Games and Wear out the system.....If you have anymore problems let me know, But try this for a while! Also look on the game to see if it has laser burn and if it does it looks like a burnt CD with rings!

Xbox doesnt read any disks

Similar problem here. Worked fine last night. This morning...every disc put in gets you a "unplayable" response. Does play DVDs though. Weird. Called xbox and they are sending us a box for repair. This is the second time sending it in. We had the ring of death crap before and had to send it in. It was in repair when Halo 3 came out. My son was having fits not being able to play it.

xbox is not on the top of my list as being a good, reliable gaming system.

Halo 3 unplayable

some time your laser is a little wack but if you are haven trouble like that then send it to repair and youll get a new xbox so it works out for you.. or just buy the 29.99 warranty on your box and get a 350.00 new box in 2 weeks. i did that once wen i still had warranty on it so.
