Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

3 Answers

The problem with my 360 is that I just replaced the piece of junk factory disc drive, it works fine but it wont play games, it brings up a srceen in about 15 languages saying to insert the disc into a 360, which it is already in. Do I need to adjust my console settings or do I need new software, my old disc drive was a hitachi

First off, don't go to the website in solution #1. The 'proven guide' is info that can be found on the web for free.

Second, as was said in #2, make sure you replaced the card inside your new drive with the one from your old drive. Videos of this can be found on youtube.

You can fix this yourself it is because the receptors on the back of the DVD overheat and once this happens it will not play your discs.

You can send it in to have them fix it or fix it yourself using an Xbox 360 Repair guide

And your new one should also be (a hitachi ) with
the P.C. board from your old drive instaled in
your new hitachi drive. If that is true then you
need to check all your ribbon conections just
to make sure one didn't slip out on you.

You should not have to adjust anything.
It should WORK.

Game wont read says put disc in xbox 360 but i am using xbox 360 also it says its a dvd not game just wont let me play no more


If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys. Hope this helps.

Wont read games only reads dvds


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

Xbox 360 wont play games but will play dvds


A drive that will play DVD movies but not Xbox 360 game discs has been set up incorrectly at the factory. The only solution is to return the Xbox 360 and specifically note the problem so the drive can be repaired or replaced.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
