I have taken this xbox apart once before but did not get very far. What type of tools are necessary to repair this type of Xbox 360? I would also like to update the CD/DVD drive on it. Any hints or ti

Most of this can be taken apart with a screwdriver . The case is a little tricky. You will notice from the side...where the case is split, there are tabs on the inside that you need to press. I poked a small screwdriver through the vent holes to press them and get the box apart.

My xbox 360 pro hard drive is messed up. I have black ops for it BRAND NEW NO SCRATCHES, and im positive about that. A few hours ago, I was playing it pefectly no problems from my hard drive, and about...

Delete the game off the drive and play it from the disc for a bit, or is it a requirement of the multilayer to have it installed on the hard drive?

Then try loading it to the drive again.

If that doesn't help, you might have to format your hard drive, or if you have another drive around try the other drive.

It seems the xbox 360 wont read the disc... every time i go to play a game alls it says is open tray... and the game never loads..

I have had the same issue and it turned out to be my hard drive. If you take the hard drive off the xbox, it will read the disk right? Then replace hard drive and the problem comes back? I stopped using the hard drive and I now use the little save cards that go into the front of the xbox. hope this helps.

Can't upload a CD on my xbox

If you have the (fall update), you should have that option. When you put a game in make sure it isn't on auto-play. Under the play game box, the option to download to hard drive is the Y button.To burn normal music CD to your hard drive you will have to go to music, then current disc. There is no option for downloading an MP3 disc though.The console will only play MP3's. I hope this helps you friend.

Xbos 360 core arcade

This one is cheaper because it comes without a hard drive. It is just the same as the ones with a hard drive but without a hard drive. Yes you can play all the games but it is recomended that you get a hard drive one. You can save games music and game upgrades on it.

Cannot read disk

Very common. there's even a law suit against MS regarding this problem, and a few dedicated websites. The problem is with the DVD drive. MS uses a few different manufacturers for the optical drive, and while the Samsung one for an exmaple is considered safe, some of the rest are buggy as hell. If you call MS they will offer to fix it for 50 - 100 $, which is offcourse BS, since it's a clear defect on their part. A way around it, is to softmod your XBOX to be able to play the games from the hard drive. This is likely to prevent you from playing live though. Here are a couple pf dedicated sites: Good luck
