Well its MS fault anyway and if it doesnt work and you have done nothing wrong to stop your xbox working then MS should replace it free of charge. my uncles did something similar to that and eh told MS and they replaced it

Hey my xbox wont read my games but will still read my dvds and cds with out a prob also my xbox has started scratcging my games as well any one know what to do.

You have two unrelated issue's. First the lasers weak and unable
to increase to sufficient brightness to read duel layer disk ( GAMES)
The laser will need to be replaced. second ,if your getting ring type
scratches then the drive is doing what's called over focus . pushing
the lens assembly in to the disk as it's spinning.

Recommendation is to have the whole drive replaced and swap
out the P.C. board to the new drive.

if the disk is still spinning when the tray open causing scratches
then there is a communication error from the C.P.U. to the drive
this will require you to have the C.P.U. re-flowed to remedy
this problem.

If you need more info ask

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games

cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.
