The laser hasn't necessarily failed. This has happened to me in the past with certian games. I solved this problem by deleting the Xbox 360 cache. This can also solve various other problems on the console.

Clearing the cache removes all game updates which means you have to download them again but it WILL NOT remove your save games and your content so it's safe.

To clear the cache, do the following:

1. Go to the System Tab and select Storage Devices.

2. Highlight your HDD and press Y for options.

3. Enter the following button sequence: X, X, LB, RB, X, X.

4. When the system asks if you want to perform maintenance, choose yes.

5. Now restart your console.

This happens because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated and you need to stop the heat build up, all you need to do is send it in or use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

Xbox 360 wont play games but will play dvds


A drive that will play DVD movies but not Xbox 360 game discs has been set up incorrectly at the factory. The only solution is to return the Xbox 360 and specifically note the problem so the drive can be repaired or replaced.

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

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.
