Re: says "insert xbox 360 disk only"

Common problem, the disks arent clean, clean them with rubbing alcohol, nail poolish, eye glass cleaner. if they are new disks then u were ripped off, go back to place of purchase and tell em.

Our game appears to have a scratch on it and won'at work

Hi there,

I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.

Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).

Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.

  1. Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
  2. Scroll down to My Xbox
  3. Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
  4. This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
  5. On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance."

When a game is inserted into the xbox 360 console it won t play the disc. on screen it says please insert xbox game

I had the same problem with my Xbox a while back. Call Microsoft Xbox support. If they tell you that your warranty is no longer valid just keep hassling them until they hook you up. Worked for me!

My xbox doesnt know its an xbox!

Tthe problem is with the dvd drive in your 360. If your console is still under warranty, Microsoft will repair it for free.

If you console is not under warranty, you can login on using the email account associated with your gamertag and open a support case to have your console fixed. Using this method, the repair cost will be $99.00

Or, you can call 1 800 4my xbox and speak with a customer support tech and have them open the support case for you. Using this method, the repair cost will $120.00

It will read some disks but not all disks and the ones it readds i try to play latter and it dont read

i had this problem with my xbox and its due to either the laser or the magnet within the disc drive that holds the disc in place. the magnet may have come loose which mean u can either open the drive up to try and reposition it, or replace the drive all together. my suggestion would be to send the xbox to microsoft if under warranty or send it to a third party company to see if they can fix it. buying a new drive for your xbox involves some very complex firmware flashing which is not advised

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player

it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.
