If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Xbox wont read any of our games, but the games will read on friends. We can listen to music or use our microsoft points to watch movies.


Sounds like an issue with the optical drive. I would suggest trying a different type of disc in the drive ( I think they can play music CD's as well as DVD discs). You might just need a replacement drive for it.

Xbox won't read my disk


try a music cd, movie dvd, game disc.

which ones do not work?

if it will not play just one type or only 1 game i woudl check the game itself. if it will not play say games or dvds but will play cds then your laser needs calibreation.

here is a link to explain this.

doign this on the xbox will void warranty if there is any but also requires special tools for proper disassembly soyou don't damage the case.

The console says the disk is unreadable but there are no scratches on the disk. We turn it off/on, clean the disk but get the same error message.


If it's not an xbox 360 disk or movie disk that will work with your xbox, It probably isn't supported on your xbox. If it's one of the first two, something really is wrong with either the disk itself (not made correctly), or your xbox needs to get sent in to be fixed.

My xbox 360 will never read the game i put in it always says open tray.


Hi,

try a Music CD Or DVD Movie ??
also try using a cleaning disk, incase of any dust on the laser head.

If none of the above work, the DVD Drives laser Unit, has weakened/Failed. And the drive should be suitably repaired, Or replaced.

I put the disc in and it keeps saying open tray


Hi,

The Console is not able To read The Disk.
First Try A DVD Movie ?
Then A Music/Audio CD ?
If it reads either Or Both Of These, the Dual-Layer Laser Has Failed, Which powers up with increase To read Dual-Layer ( X-Box 360 Games ) A New Or Replacement DVD Drive, Will Be Required.

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.
