This is caused by a weak laser ,soon it won't read at all
and you'll receive the "open tray" message on your screen
as-if there is no game in the console. Not to worry this is
not a hard or expensive fix ,if you have the time,tools, and patients.
First goto Richs PSX and find out what drive you have BenQ, hitachi,..
Now buy the correct laser for your drive . their cheap 20.00-30.00
disassemble your console ,there are 100's of tutorial online on how
to swap out your laser , just remember to remove the solder dot
on the new laser to activate it.

You could also have a shop swap it out for 70-80 your
choice.

if you have any questions feel free to ask before you rate this

Tried to play a game on one xbox but wont work on one but will work on another why one xbox can read the game other wont but have played the game before


Sometimes one drive might have a weaker laser than another or it may be aligned slightly different. Perhaps one is older or has been jostled around more. This is why some XBox units are more "sensitive" to scratched discs than others.

Sometimes it wont read disc


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.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

This is quite a common error.

Exbox 360 wont read my game help!!


You need to either clean the laser and try again, and if that doesn't help you need to replace the laser. Sometimes it's just that hair or fibers get in the dvd drive motor and it won't spin. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in and try it, it just might work.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.
