Re: My disks are not reading

If you have a store called Play n Trade in your area, they are usually faster than Microsoft.

But as for fixing the console yourself, its not fun...i have tried it myself before to just make my console not turn on at all :(

X box 360 elite will not read any disc. It keeps saying open trey how would can that be fixed?

The Xbox Disk Drive, which you put the games and whatnot into have a tendency to wear out and in essence, refuse to spin properly meaning the game is not being read and is mistaken for a DVD disk, so when the console realises it isn't, it doesn't know what to do.

There isn't much you can do about this. The easiest thing would be to get it repaired, or you could try your own hand at it. You can find 360 HDD's on ebay for example, or you can keep trying the disk multiple times before it starts working.

I have got the new game need for speed hot pursuit and the 360 reads the disk and it comes up need for speed hot pursuit with the image on the start up menu. But when I click play it reads the disk and...

I had this problem as well. Its a disc drive problem. Believe it or not the only thing that i have tried that fixed it(I've had the thing apart a few times) Is to softly tap the left side(right above where the disc is) quickly as it boots up. Very temporary fix. I'm currently waiting for a new drive. This fix is just to hard on a machine to do to long.

Good luck

The xbox will not read games

it could be you're disk drive. there is no way to fix the disk drive so you'll have to buy a new one, my xbox did the same thing last year and i found a new disk drive on ebay for 20 bucks it's easy to install, i found a video on youtube that explains how to do it

Cannot read disk

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Disk reading

the red ring is horrible and even if you reset it, it will always come back to haunt bad ways such as the disk not being read. you will have to call up microsoft, and with a warranty, hopefully you still have it, you can send it back for no fee and get it fixed!

Disc unreadable

Dude mine does the same thing

What I do is pop off the front cover
find a black gear under DVD drawer and with game loaded move gear all the way to the left which engages drawer disc positioning to proper place for a "read" if I leave my disk partially raised it will scratch the disk!!!

This is what works for me-{out of warranty}

Xbox 360 unplayable disks

What you have to do, is clean the "eye" the thing under the disk tray that reads the game, you probabley got that dirty or damaged somehow. Try spraying compressed air into the open disk tray to get any quick dust off. if that does not work then try finding other ways to clean it or call 1-800-4my-xbox and have microsoft check out the system to see whats wrong with it
