I put game disc into xbox it wont play but keeps telling me to open tray


its an error, it sounds silly but put the disk in and when it says reading hit the xbox on the vents by the harddrive. if this doesn't work try a few other games, once one works put the one you originally wanted to play back in.

Xbox 360 open tray message; not reading discs


If it won't play any games it might be the laser that reads the disk. I would suggest getting it checked out somewhere.

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.

Hardrive reading disks error


2 Things can cause this: 1) if its a MODDED drive then the firmware on the drive might need to be updated. 2) the firmware Key in the drive doesnt match the xbox console's key... ie. the drive has been swapped with a different one.
