Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

3 Answers

Error Message Whenever i insert an Xbox 360 game into my Xbox 360 console (new games, old games ALL GAMES) except for original xbox games, dvd or audio discs it comes up with the charming, ironic and humerous message "Please insert this disc into an Xbox 360 console." Despite the fact that it is already in a 360 console. It usually takes between one to ten system resets before the disc is regognised as an actual game. Any solutiouns on how to fix this? Any idea why it does this? This is the second system i have which has done this, and while at moment its minor, im worried it will get to the stage where it wont recognize any 360 media at all.

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

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:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/xb360ac.html

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.

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

On the left hand side of the console, or the top if it is standing upright, is a grey panel with holes through it, you can remove this panel and this is where the hard drive is inserted. You can purchase a hard drive from any xbox 360 games retailer or also online.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.

Hi,
Get A New DVD drive.
I,d suggest That Your Laser is,nt kicking up the required Voltage To read The dual-Layers ?
X-Box games Are single Layer DVD. 360s Are Dual Layer ( DL )
Also try An Original Or Over 5 gig DVD ( Thats most likely to Be Dual Layer )
