This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a
Samsung or Hitachi drive, be careful when
buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the
minute which can damage your machine or
at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

if your 360 reads DVD's but not games it may be repairable but if it wont
read anything then your better off replacing the laser. strip down the
console and strip the DVD drive, take out the laser and look underneath
it, it will have a code such as HD57 or something else, note that down.
Visit ebay and search for the laser with the same code, buy it, fit it in
and make sure you de-solder the static blob of solder before using it
(search the net about this or ask the seller) and then try your machine
again :)

Reads games as DVDS But when read as a game


Quite possibly the laser is becoming weaker, which causes read issues. First thing to try is simply putting a cleaner disc in and running it a few times.

My game disc said it wont read disk plz help ?


try different games in your gamecube and see if it can read any of the other games. If your gamecube isn't reading any games then you know it might be a laser problem. In that case go ahead and take a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and wipe off the laser with it. This will make sure that dust or dirt is not on the laser. If you do this and the gamecube is still not reading games then you know that athe laser is bad and needs to be replaced.

If you can get other games to read but mario sunshine then wipe off the disk on both sides top and bottom making sure that there is no smudges on either side then try having the gamecube read it again. If it doesn't read it still then you know that the game is bad and you would need to get another one.

Only One Game Is Not read


Even though the game can be read on other consoles doesn't mean yours can read it. The game may be scratched and can not be read by your PS2, Check other games on your console and if they do not work then your PS2 is broken and may need repair.

Will not read ps2 games


The newer models of the PS2 Do not have the E-motion chip in them meaning that they will not read PS2 games. If you do indeed have a model that is designed to read PS2 games, then you will need to contact Sony and have them fix it.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.

PS3 Not Reading Games


If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix all you need is a good repair guide.


You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.

360 reads one game as a dvd


this problem occurs in certain games, keep inserting the game or take back to the rental company, as it has an error on the disc, especially if you know that other discs are read alright by the 360.
