If your Xbox 360 is not reading games you need to stop the heat build up getting to the chips on the back of the DVD drive.

To do this use a good Xbox 360 repair guide or send it in.

Any solutions ? >> my Xbox is reading the games as DVD Film ...?


Without opening your console up eject the disk tray and blow in it to remove any dust on the laser lens.
If that doesnt work, then im afraid you would need to open up console, and open up the disk drive and clean laser with some rubbing achol.
An update would not cause your xbox to not work...

Why doesnt my xbox read the game discs?


The dvd drive on an xbox is keyed to the motherboard, so if it (the dvd drive) is changed it won't work on another machine. If this is not the case try cleaning the laser with a laser cleaning disc.

My x-box 360 doesnt play games but plays cd,dvd


DOes it read to play this game put in a xbox 360 console? If so someone replaced the original dvd drive and didnt flash the firmware or did it wrong. If it doesnt say that then its more then likely a dirty or broken laser. Very cheap part to replace they are on ebay just need to make sure which laser you have before buying one.

The laser on the dvd drive is either dirty or bad. Ebay sells replacement for $10-15.

The 360 reads the game as a DVD and the DVD menu


this is possibly one of 2 problems, either:

1: you have a faulty disc

or...

2: you have a faulty disk drive (dvd)

take the disc back and ask for an exchange, if that doesnt solve the problem, then you will need to purchase a new dvd disk drive.

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.
