Www xbox support


What disc? a game? ...... If it is a game disc, (I found after many hours of usual research), that when you purchase xbox games New and Used, you need to make sure they were manufactured in the correct Region, ie: Country or origin of the USA. If the disc is from a different region you will constantly have issues with xbox reading the disks....Funny they don't tell you that, and I found this out after purchasing a used game off of amazon and spending more time trying to get the xbox to read the disk than I did playing the game.

I replaced my disc drive, but my xbox only plays movies and cds, no games???? I need help!!


Hi.

Because you have replaced the DVD drive it may have a Lost DVD Key.

Xbox 360 DVD drives are Married to the motherboard of the console that they came with. If you simply replace a faulty drive with a working one, the console will not read game discs, only DVDs and CDs. You need to either repair the original drive, or swap it's controller board with a drive of the same model. (There are a few different drive variants, so you need a drive of the same model) If repairing the drive and putting it's controler board into an identicle drive doesn't solve your problem, there is really no possibility of regaining game functionality.



Regards.

It's possible you need to clear the system cache

If that doesn't work, try inserting a DVD movie in there. Does it read it? If not, it's possible the laser on your DVD drive which reads games/movies is either beginning to go bad or has gone bad and at that point you would need to either contact Microsoft support to repair it or find someone locally who knows how to.

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.

Very common error nearly as big as the 3 red light problems.
