Plays dvd but not games

Any more details then that? I am assuming that you are not the original owner of the Xbox 360? you bought it used?

won't be ebale to try and assist you without more information on the Xbox 360. Has it worked for YOU before? Have you been able to play games on it and it suddenly stopped playing games? Has it been modified? Has it been moved around a lot recently?

Please be specific on your history with the Xbox 360 and we can see what you might have as an issue.

Bought a Replacement Samsung TS-H943 DVD-ROM Drive for Xbox 360

Hello. The pcb board is "married" to the motherboard with a certain firmware. If you didn't flash the new drive with the correct firmware it will not work. The best thing to do is just replace the laser if you have DVD drive problems. I hope you still have the old one! Good luck to you. Thanks!

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games

The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console

The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?
