Re: exp hd & modchip - not reading 360 games

I think there must be a problem with the processor, i have known people in similar cases. If you got the warranty from where you got it, (ex. Circuit City, Best Buy) then go take it back and they will 90% of the time give you a new one. If you dont its okay because Xbox 360 has a three year warranty given to every owner free. Call Microsoft/ Xbox customer service and they will send you a empty box in about 3-5 days. It will take them about a week or two to fix but it will work perfectly as did mine.

Xbox 360 do not read but when it does read after several tries it plays very good the hardest problems is reading games

Sounds like your Xbox 360 has a dirty laser, try cleaning the laser with a disc laser cleaner, you could purchase it in any electronic store, even Wal-Mart. Worst case scenario is you would have to replace the cd drive. You can purchase one from eBay; they have many of them starting from $30 US dollars, best of luck

My xbox keeps saying the disc is unreadable, but sometimes it will lay, any suggestions?

is the disc made for the 360 maybe for another console even original xbox games won't work until you install something that can read it (has to be a CD, DVD, or HD-DVD) also possible that the disc has alot of scratches

Xbox 360 wont read disks

easy fix this one, its a common problem especially with elites. buy a 360 hd-dvd drive online (its an expansion dvd player so you can watch hd-dvds on your 360, it was to compete with the sony blu-ray functionality) but you can play your games via this device instead. aswell the hd-drive gives your games full 1080p quality as opposed the 720i that you get from using the 360 alone.

hope this helps.

Unreadable text

I do not believe there is a solution. I had the same setup and could not read the text. I tried everything and eventually got rid of the 360 because without an HD TV, I could not read anything.

Video game choic

I personal like the wii 3d movement and with it being cheaper, it is a very nice system

the 360 is expensive but a lot of fun online, you just have to try them both before buying either

hope this helps

Opening/closing game, not very fun.

looks like your switch is jamed or fried, or you installed a modchip incorrectly. If you still are in the return/exchange period, exchange it
