    my 360 brings up a white screen saying to play this disc insert into a xbox 360 console.

    same here... a couple weeks ago it occasionally wouldn't start spinning the disk drive. If I repeatedly open/closed the tray and turned the console on/off it would eventually start spinning and all would be fine... then, when I did get it to spin it would pop up a window saying "insert this disk into an xbox360 console" in about 20 languages.

    Now, it will not read any disk at all. No games, no dvd, nothing...

I found an article on changing the POT settings and I tore down my console and changed the ohms on the DVD side from about 3.2 to about 2.8 which is the lowest setting recommended...but it was all for nothing, the damn drive just wont spin and when it occasionally does, I get the 15 languages screen...

so I guess my only option is to find a new DVD drive right? any suggestions? TIA!!!

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything


The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Xbox 360 says "Please insert this CD into an Xbox 360"


Try to clean out your xbox 360. Or, try to clean the disc with a soft rag and windex. Or, your disc is scratched

Will not play games


Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.

Check the region code on the disc. There should be a code around the inside ring of the disc.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
