Re: xbox 360

Inspect your DVD tray for protrusions or foreign substances. Run a finger over the portion of the drive where the disk sits and if you feel a bump or piece the sticks out try getting rid of it with a little sandpaper in that area. Also, try changing your console's orientation (flat or on its side) and see if it makes a difference. Be sure to test only with a burned music cd as they are much less expensive ^.^ good luck!

My xbox 360 game is not working and i cleaned it what do i do

9 out of 10 times when a game is not working anymore it is because the disk is scratched. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a scratched disks, and anything that promises to fix scratches will either do nothing or make it worse. I would suggest buying a used copy of the game from a local retailer.

My call of duty game doesnt work anymore because of the scratches

If you're lucky, the scratches may not have cause permanent damage. Try taking your disk to a retailer such as EB Games that provides disk cleanings.

Leaving rings on games .games will not play

scratching rings into cd means don't put anymore "important CDs" in there try switching how the 360 is sitting see if you can't run a blank CD in it when its set on side (opposite to side its on being vertically or horizontally)

ONE of my games don't play on my xbox 360 game anymore, it use too but not anymore, the games looks okay, no scratches etc but i don't know why it doesn't work on my xbox 360 anymore HHHHEEEELLLLLLPPPPP

If all of your other games play and only this game
will not read ,Try it on a friends xbox just to rule out
a weak laser problem. some console's cd roms
are more sensitive to specific games . second try
another copy of the same game, since not all game
are created equal . a slight timing off set in the drive
can cause some game to kick out due to copy protection .

Also what game is it?

Have xbox 360, and new fallout 3 game of the year!!! play the game for 2 weeks ,the game loads, but when you start to move your character the game goes to blue screen or says it can't read disc!! and goes...

if it just has scratches then spread toothpaste all around it dry then wash it off with water and dry it completely but if it has a perfect scratched circle then u gotta replace it cause if it has that circle it wont work anymore, thats why gamestop has a new deal for a few more dollars that if that circle happens they replace it for free

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
