Re: dont want to read disc

Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

My console wont read any of my discs

Typically its a problem with the disc tray, a variety of solutions can be gently tapping on the top of the xbox immediately after the disc tray closes. Another suggestion is, and don't do this very often, but when the disc tray closes, immediately turn your xbox 90 degrees backwards so the Disc tray is facing up at the ceiling. If these fail, you may simply just have to play with the disc tray, grab it while closing, dont tug too much, slam it closed really fast. Microsoft really is **** when it comes to making things last, but these should work somewhat, you might just have to buy a new xbox if they don't ever work.

Every time I put a game in it will play for a good while and then all of sudden it will say, problems reading disc check owners manual, or something like that.

This is not nessesarily a solve issue, however it worked with mine, I had the same issues when playing games. I would be in the middle of gameplay, and the the error screen would pop up and say that the disc coudnt be read, All I did to fix the issue was open the unit, blow the dust off the disc drive motor and attatched ****, then I used some 3 in one oil on all the motors inside the system. So far it hasnt messed up (FINGERS CROSSED) I hope this helps.....I noticed with my gamecube that it would quit spinning the game, and after I made it past the gameplay loaded in memory it would error out because it needed to spin the disc and load more programing into memory.....if your disc dont spin you are guarenteed a disc read error

The optical drive on the xbox wears over time. Call 1-800-4MYXBOX and get a repair scheduled.

My nintendo wii wont load discs??

Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
