The easiest way is to buy another drive of the same make as your old one e.g if your drive is a samsung buy another samsung check for the make and model on the lid of the drive then swap the circuit board as this contains the firmware needed to match the 360 motherboard, other than that your looking at dvd key extraction done via a pc look on jungleflasher,com for a tutorial, or if your in the uk i can do this for £14 returned

I cannot play most of the games due to region code....I have an Xbox 360 pal as well as Xbox 360 ntsc console....the latter has burnt up but its DVD ROM is alright....if i change the DVD ROM of pal to ntsc...


Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

Please help me try to fix the play dvd error on my x box 360 easy


sometimes the laser moves all the way to the back of the dvd-rom drive and won't pick up the disc
Once you get your case off the system, lift the dvd-rom out and remove the 4 screws on the bottom.
if the laser is in range of the disc then you should take a cotton swab with a dab of alcohol on the end and clean the laser head ( never touch the laser)
then put the dvd-rom together but leave the case off of the xBox.
Test with a game, if it still does not read then you need to buy a laser from an online store
I recommend eBay - there is a seller from Brooklyn New York that I buy all of my repair parts for, he has a eBay store by the name of YallStore. His shipping time is phenomenal!
and The laser cost less than $10

My xbox 360 says play dvd but i put in halo 3 which is a video game


Is your DVD-ROM the original one that was in it when it was purchased? If not, then there's your problem. If you replace it with another ROM from a different 360, or with an after-market 360 ROM, then it will only play movies and not the games. It requires you to hack your 360 to get the new ROM to work properly, and that's alot of stuff to do. I think that according to the rules of this website I'm not allowed to post info about how to hack & crack things. If your DVD-ROM is the original one, then maybe your need to update your firmware and even run a cleaning disc in your 360 to get it to work right. If that doesn't work, then you have the option of replacing your ROM yourself and finding the hacks to make it work right, or you can pay Microsoft about $100 to fix it for you.

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games


The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console


The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?

Dvd rom


Hi,
I,ll assume this regarding the X-Box 360 ?
If you,ve replaced the Drive on a 360.
It will not work, due to the fact that the dvd rom drive, is paired to the motherboard. you can,t simply swap a faulty drive.
When the 360 boots, it,s looking for a Key On the dvd rom, before it will initialise it, and bootup.
I,d suggest looking on the net, regarding XBOX 360 drive flashing. if you still have your original drive, keep it. as your xbox won,t boot without it. you have to backup the drives key ( number ) And have it reflashed onto a replacement drive.
you could try a laser lens cleaner. Or possibly laser unit replacement.
