If its still under warranty, and the seal hasn't been cracked, contact Microsoftxbox 360 problems - 1.gif.

Try what hijackthis1 suggested, if that doesn't fix it, try this.

Since you have the 360 apart, and the top cover off of the dvd4.gif drive, here we go...

There's a circular cut-out that's glued to the top cover that you removed from the dvd drive, right below the sticker with all of the drive information. I was able to pop out the cut-out. After that you now have (3) pieces in your hand, the cover, cut-out, and a plastic piece.

Connected the dvd drive back in the 360 with the top cover off.

Put a game or movie in the drive, don't hit the eject botton, just put the disc in the tray.

Now with the disc in the tray, put the plastic piece in the center of the disc. Its magnetic, so it should kind of lock in to place.

Connect the power/av cords in the 360 and turn her on.

You should see the disc try to spin. (It may spin once or a couple times around, but it will stop). When you see the disc start to spin, GENTLE, spin/turn the disc in the direction in wants to go. It should load the game or dvd with no problems.

Reassemble the cover and put back on the dvd drive.

Now use the eject botton, and try games and dvds4.gif.

If disc fails to spin, do process over again.

I've done this with one of my 360's with no problems.
The drive I used was an Hitachi 0059DJ.

Open up the console and open up the CD Drive. Clean the lens of the CD Drive with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then put the console back together.

How to fix a cd


That probably means that your disc has been scratched. You can fix this with a disc cleaner, or fix it yourself. To do this, mist the disc with tap water, then slowly dab it off with tissue paper. Repeat this a few times and it should help if the scratch isn't too bad :)

Why wont my Xbox 360 play any games but will play DVD videos?


My boyfriend was having the exact same problem. He was able to use it as a media server, but, no games would play at all. Turns out that the disc drive is broken. It isn't reading discs at all.

Just changed the disc drive on my xbox 360 now it wont play games only dvd can anyone help thanks


the disc drive on the xbox 360 has a key that matches it to the motherboard. If the key isn't there, or is incorrect, the xbox won't read games. If you (hopefully) still have the original drive, you might be able to get someone to help you with jungleflasher to copy the key over. Good luck!

I need a serial number for this pc game DIRT 3.


Getting a serial number that isn't the original is kind of illegal. If you lost it, I would try calling the company that made the game and talking to their customer service.

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)
