Some of your games or movies may have problems playing due to 2 issues.

1.> dirty / scratched cd or dvd : Clean each cd with alcohol to clean up any smudges. If the cd / dvd is badly scratched then most electronic & music stores sell a rubbing compound that can be used to buff out mild scratches.

2.> Dirty laser head. : Music & electronic stores sell a special dvd laser cleaning kit, usually around 20$ that should do the trick.

Remember always clean your cd / dvd's before you put them into your machine and always put them back in the case.

As far as hacks go, that will void your warrenty and generally is not a good idea, most hacks are firmware changes that once made can kill the ability to play some games or worse brick your system.

When I did the xbox live test from were it keeps kicking me off saying not enough banwidth while I was trying to play battlefield3 it said service alert and it gave me a bunch of codes 20A8-4840xbox360...


don't simultaneously use other device connected when you are on xbox live , then you ll have difficulty playing on xbox live .

Make sure you disconnect all other devices connected to internet before you connect you xbox to internet

if you have no devices connected to your internet then may be some one has hacked your wifi

change the wifi password , it ll fix the issue :)

What if enything is xbox doing to stop all the hacks and cheeting going on in xbox live ? i tried to play 12 diferent xbox 360 games and ther was between 6 to 9 players how you culdnt kill or wer flying in...


Most video game developers check to see if players are cheating and ban them to a restricted server where "hacked" players only play other "hacked" players. As for users who are taking advantage of bugs, network lag or any other means that seems unfair, Microsoft does their best, with the help of moderators within the games, to ban players from the Xbox service by actually banning their gamertag and their console. It does help though for you to Comment on other players you see online. You have the ability to click on their Gamertag profile and leave a "Rep" about them. This leaves marks on their account, where you can specify what type of "un-fairness" you are seeing. Enough of these will actually get the player banned or deleted. Hope this answers your question and let me know if you have anymore. Gamertag -- oO Gemeni Oo

If you got a xbox from some one and it is pass word on it what do you do get it to play all games and movies if you don't no the pass word


The only way you will be able to play all of your games and movies is to have the password. There is no possible way to get around it. Try calling the person who you bought the Xbox from and retrieve the password from them.

Can i play games from other regions


You cannot play games purchased from other regions on your Xbox 360 without hacking the firmware. It is programmed to disallow this to combat piracy, unfortunately.

I would strongly recommend NOT hacking the firmware, because it comes with many, many disadvantages. The firmware is the code that runs the device, like an OS.

- With some firmware hacks you cannot go on Xbox Live.
- You can be banned permanently from Xbox Live, your console AND your gamertag.
- Your warranty will automatically devoid.
- You can mess up your entire console, with no help because of no warranty as mentioned above.
- Sometimes, there's no going back from a hacked firmware.

If you would still like to hack your firmware, make sure you do your research, and make sure you get it from a place you absolutely trust with lots of people saying it works and was easy. Some mean people have released fake firmware hacks that destroy your console.

My xbox 360 says play dvd but i put in halo 3 which is a video game


Is your DVD-ROM the original one that was in it when it was purchased? If not, then there's your problem. If you replace it with another ROM from a different 360, or with an after-market 360 ROM, then it will only play movies and not the games. It requires you to hack your 360 to get the new ROM to work properly, and that's alot of stuff to do. I think that according to the rules of this website I'm not allowed to post info about how to hack & crack things. If your DVD-ROM is the original one, then maybe your need to update your firmware and even run a cleaning disc in your 360 to get it to work right. If that doesn't work, then you have the option of replacing your ROM yourself and finding the hacks to make it work right, or you can pay Microsoft about $100 to fix it for you.

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it


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.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

My xbox 360 plays games as dvds!?


I doubt you put all your games :). your XBOX 360 is probably hacked to play homebrew games. that happens when usually a new protection is enabled on newer games, every several months new protection is issued to restrict piracy. the only thing is to get it hacked with a newer DVD-ROM security override.

I need some help


ok well a xbox cant have movies on it. thats only xbox 360 with a router not a direct connect and even then its only reading it from the computer.

You are trying to play dvd's? Then you will need the remote sensor plugged in to the box before it plays movies. IT's called a xbox dvd movie playback kit. Part # x08-25387
