My Xbox 360 plays DVDs, CDs, when I put a game in it will load and the screen will say XBOX but nothing else happens or it will say to play this disk put it in a Xbox 360 console! How can I fix this!

Your disc may be scratched. Try a disc repair kit. If it's a known working game then there may be a defect with the firmware of the 360 which could require a factory reset of the console.

My disc wont work i left it in my xbox 360 for a few hours after playing it and then it mysteriusly broke

it probably broke becuase you moved the xbox while the game was playing or you put the xbox from lying down to standing up or standing up to lying down this causes the disk to shift inside of it and scratches the disk when it loads up im sorry to hear of that

My xbox 360 wont play discs - keeps repeating open tray, I can play demos and xbox live but not discs or movies, any tips?? Thanks!

I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!

Xbox says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.. only does this to 360 games originals work. i restored to factory setting but still same problem even with new games

There seems to be theory that if you hold down the A button whilst the game is trying to load it can solve the problem, but the honest truth is that your disk drive is dead or doomed. If it is saying this with every game disk, every time then you need to send it for repair. Contact support on 0800 587 1102

Disk case

yea what i did was put a fan infront of it blowing into the holes on the xbox 360 to keep it cool and it worked.
Just try to look after your xbox 360 like clean of the dust, keep it cool, don't put it in a spot that it will heat up quick, don't play for to long like 5-6 hours straight and don't get it chipped. Do this and i am 99.99% sure your xbox 360 will be fine.
