No Audio from CD play

Of late, my 360 has no audio when playing CDs or music on its drive. DVD's and video games are no problem and produce audio fine. I have checked and rechecked the connections. I use an use an optical cable to a Sony receiver.
It had been working and now no audio from CDs or other music.

Any suggestions?

Does the screen eventually read "Open Tray"?
This is a very common error, you need a DVD drive replacement. Only an experienced person can do this, if you don't do it correctly you won't be able to play games again. If you'd like I can do the repair for you, contact me at

I put a new drive in my xbox 360 and it wont play games

every DVD drive is "married" to the motherboard. They both have a special key that keeps them together. Without that key the motherboard will not accept the DVD drive and it won't be able to play games ever again. You can extract the key from you old DVD drive and "spoof" it to the new one. That's the only way it'll work.

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped

If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.

I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
