Hi,my xbox360 won't read pirate some pirate games,why?

First off I'd like to mention that what I post here does not condone piracy, merely reiterating information widely available already on the internet.

First off, your Xbox360 will not read pirated/backed up games if you have no made any modifications to it. Secondly, if your Xbox360 was bought in 2005 and you have not updated it to play on Xbox live, do not follow my advice here, look up the JTAG hack on google. This is more complex but it lets you do much much more with your Xbox360 and in a sense 'jailbreak's' it.

Regardless of what Xbox360 you have (old, 'slim', updated or not), you can enable it to play pirated/backed up games by flashing the DVD drive firmware with a custom firmware, the latest being the ixtreme LT+, with a software utility called Jungle Flasher. Do do this you need a computer with SATA capability and you need to take apart your XBOX. There are many good tutorials freely available online (best ones are from and there is enough info above to get you started.

If you are not comfortable with computers and/or taking apart your 360, I would not attempt any of this.

p.s. The latest ixtreme firmware does let you play your game copies on XboxLive without the risk of being banned, even when playing the latest 'protected' discs.

p.p.s I would also like to mention that while you may have purchased an Xbox360, in the U.S.A. you do not own the full rights to do whatever you want with that device (current exceptions only being made for mobile phones). So if you live there, customizing your Xbox360 in whatever way you see fit is illegal until further changes are made the DMCA.

I went to go play my xbox360 at 12:26 this afternoon. and it will load the games but th screen will go blank while trying to start the game and will stay that way untill i restart it. but it does it to...

You may not see a problem, but when I got a Wii the month it came out, there were small problems. I didn't notice them until I played Super Mario Galaxy. The game froze at the obserbatory. Then I tried Twilight Princess. When I transformed into a wolf, the game froze. When playing Elebits, my sister found an error on level 6. The game slowed down. Soon it got so bad that the only game I could play was Sonic and The Secret Rings. Then I decided it was time to get a new Wii. The system had hidden problems. The new Wii had no problems. As a matter of fact, as I type this, my sister is on Wii Internet Channal watching Youtube videos! Get a new X-Box 360 before the problem is so bad you cannot get your games out of the console.

Xbox360 elite

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

Red lights... ? (different i think)

I had the same exact thing happen. The only thing to do is call 18004myxbox and have it sent out for repair. Ask to speak with a manager though, because they can usually give you a better price than the initial guy. If it's still under warranty though it won't cost anything. So weird that this happened to me playing the same game. Just got mine back yesterday.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.

Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now:

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

Here's a place to buy a replacement drive:

Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox

It sounds to me you have your 360 standing on it's side. I placed mine on it's side ONCE and because of it have a pretty scratched copy of Oblivion. Lay it horizontal, and that should rectify your issue. Let me know if this helps.
