I don't know if this will help anyone, but I have tried a variety of things that occasionally have worked. Eject disk and pop it back in and then restart 360. Sometimes may require doing this a couple of times. If that doesn't work, try unplugging that thing in back with the orange light and replug it. Or simply, as it worked for my brother, just turn the 360 off and unplug the orange light thingy and don't play again until maybe a week or month, etc. He unplugged it for about 3 weeks and then it worked perfectly again. Sometimes the 360 just needs a little break. Even though this may be impossible for most to leave it alone for even a day, but its either you or your 360. make it live again!

Why won't the xbox read any disk after installing the xbox live

This is a common problem with old xbox 360 consoles.If your console is still under warranty, try getting a replacement by visiting the support website at

If you are no longer covered by insurance you can do an old trick I used to do with my old xbox 360.
Open the disc tray and insert the disc, as soon as you insert the disc in the console, hit your xbox on the top surface a few times, around 3, by this I mean slap it. it might take a few tries but it worked me.

However, if you are having problems with a specific disc, you should try cleaning the disc with a clean cloth. If that doesn't work, you can borrow the same game from a friend or try to obtain a temporary copy. Download the game to your hard drive and insert the original game, it should work flawlessly.

Won't read disc's

theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

360 reads one game as a dvd

this problem occurs in certain games, keep inserting the game or take back to the rental company, as it has an error on the disc, especially if you know that other discs are read alright by the 360.
