SOURCE: Message "To play game put game in xbox 360 console"

the dvd drive prolly needs to be replaced. ive had this issue plenty of time before and it sometimes turned out to be the cd its self. the console might not be able to read the cd becuase of some kind of damage, try a dif 360 game.

if that dont work open up the cd and look on the dvd drive there will me a model number of a dvd drive. go to or and find a place that sells brand new or used but working dvd drive and purchase it and add it to the console. this will fix the issue of any reading cd problems.

make sure you purchase the correct dvd drive model

I see this problem frequently and it almost always a problem with the laser. you can replace the laser as well if you did not want to do the whole drive.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games

Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

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.

New game does not play-Msg says to clean disc but it is clean.

If the warranty is still good abandon trying to deal with bad repairs and demand a exchange, have them replace it.

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.
