It might be the laser of the Xbox (which is what reads the disc).
Do you get any error code when you put in a disc, like "the disc cannot be read" or something similar?
If so, it could be that the Xbox 360 is a different region than the game. The only way to fix this is to buy games that are compatible with the Xbox 360 (buying games within the same region.) For example, if you bought your Xbox in the States, chances are if you go to Hong Kong and buy a game it won't work on your console. But there are certain games that are region free. (Any Xbox 360 console can play them)
Hope this helped.

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Well only certain xbox games can be supported by the xbox 360 there is a list on the xbox live website that shows you what you can play. The update only works for games that are supported by the xbox 360 console.

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

X box cant not rid the games ask m to hopen tray in all cd


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.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
