What can you do? If you have the tools, time and patients
you could replace the laser yourself by going to
Richs PSX or Lamma and find out what
drive you have .Buy a new laser from Richs PSX ,they cost
about 20-30$ then disassemble your console remove your
CD rom drive dissemble that also, and install the new laser .it's
not that hard if you follow a online tutorial.just rember to
remove the solder ball on the new laser to activate it.

Or you could have a shop swap it out for 60.00-70.00
choice is yours

If you have any questions feel free to ask before you

My xbox 360 reads dvds but not games


If oyu have had it for a long time or its old the laser on the DVD drives eventually burn out from too much use. The games require a more precise laser to read it while DVDs are easier to read.

If you have a original xbox game try that. If it works it must be the laser.

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

Xbox360 reading dvds only


If you have never opened your Xbox 360 case you can go to http://service.xbox.com and have it repaired. It might even be under warranty since microsoft has extended their warranty on the 360's. It sounds like the cd portion of the laser is bad. This is common in game consoles like xbox and sony playstations.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games but reads dvds


Your laser is bad in the drive. When it comes to reading games, DVd's, music cds, it requires a different strength from the laser in your dvd rom in order to read them. If it can't read all types then the laser is definitely bad and you can either replace just the laser or the whole drive.
