Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

3 Answers

Wont read the disc

My XBOX 360 will not play 3 new games I purchased. I inserted Halo3, Lego Star Wars and Dance Revolution discs and I got the following message "to play disc enter it into a XBOX 360 console." I tried turning the console off, unplugging it at the outlet. Nothing works. The games are brand new. Any suggestions?

The dvd drive prolly needs to be replaced. ive had this issue plenty of time before and it sometimes turned out to be the cd its self. the console might not be able to read the cd becuase of some kind of damage, try a dif 360 game.

if that dont work open up the cd and look on the dvd drive there will me a model number of a dvd drive. go to ebay.com or google.com and find a place that sells brand new or used but working dvd drive and purchase it and add it to the console. this will fix the issue of any reading cd problems.

make sure you purchase the correct dvd drive model

I spoke with XBOC techs...they advised that the unit had to be returned for repair. It appeared to be something they immediately recognized as a common problem in need of shop repair under warranty.
thanks anyway.

360 won't play a certain disc


i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war.
i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one.
and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray


Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

I have a specific game that will not play on my xbox 360,Lego star wars the complete saga. Every other game works but this one. I thought was a bad disc but i got it exchanged and still the same thing...


Try to install the game to the HDD. You must have the NXE Dashboard.

To do this simply insert the game onto the drive and go to the menu where it shows the game disc.

Press Y on the image of the game and select "Install to Hard Drive".

After the game finishes install select "Play From Hard Drive"

If the game fails to install try cleaning the disc with warm water NOT hot or cold water but WARM. After that dry the disc with a soft towel or some sort of SOFT cloth by wiping away from the center of the disc.

Xbox won't load Hi I have Xbox


It could be the laser needs cleaning, or the game disc itself make sure there are no scratches on the game disc underneath. if other games play and just that game wont then its possible it could be scratched and need of a clean.
