Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

XBOX 360 My friend gave me his xbox 360. It worked fine for him. But for me, it will only play DVD's. Not games. None of the games are scratched up or anything. It just keeps saying they're unplayable. Any ideas?

My xbox 360 makes this really loud buzzing sound or humming sound when I play certain games some games are fine they dont make a loud buzzing sound.


Its probably because you have the game in the wrong way. That happened to mine and i realized it was in backwards. So check that out and reply back. Also don't move your Xbox 360 with a game or DVD in it, it will get the game/ DVD scratched up.

When we put in a game for our 360 system it says it's playing a dvd we can't get the game to work. how do i fix it so it says play game amd not play dvd? (it only does this with 1 game. the rest work fine


Ok if your for certain thats the original dvd drive and the other games work then its too many scratches on the disc or your laser lens needs wiped off with qtip and rubbing alcohol.


If you get an xbox thats say play dvd all the time on every game and it says to play this disc stick in a xbox 360 console then its the wrong dvd drive for that motherboard and you wont get the key (on a chip in the motherboard on the cd drive) unless you have the original dvd drive taken out of your xbox. Then you can just switch that little motherboard on the bottom of the dvd drives and it will read games. This is for those who will look at this with a xbox off ebay that they cant figure out how to fix. Its just an expensive dvd player.

I borrow games from one of my freinds chris and his games wont work in my xbox 360 so I tried them in another freinds xbox 360 and they still dont work. The games only work in chris's xbox 360 only.


Hi,

His console is either chipped or the DVD drive has been modded to be able to play backups.

Meaning the games are backups and not original games.

Thanks

My new EA Skate freezes my XBox 360


There may be some scratches, not all scratches are visible.
Try taking it to a descratching machine (available at some game shops)
If not, then try returning the game for a new one
