When we put in a game for our 360 system it says it's playing a dvd we can't get the game to work. how do i fix it so it says play game amd not play dvd? (it only does this with 1 game. the rest work fine


Ok if your for certain thats the original dvd drive and the other games work then its too many scratches on the disc or your laser lens needs wiped off with qtip and rubbing alcohol.


If you get an xbox thats say play dvd all the time on every game and it says to play this disc stick in a xbox 360 console then its the wrong dvd drive for that motherboard and you wont get the key (on a chip in the motherboard on the cd drive) unless you have the original dvd drive taken out of your xbox. Then you can just switch that little motherboard on the bottom of the dvd drives and it will read games. This is for those who will look at this with a xbox off ebay that they cant figure out how to fix. Its just an expensive dvd player.

Put in a game and it says reading dvd and will not play but it will play a dvd if you put one in


Has this happened to all of your dvd games? Make sure your dvd game is genuine and not pirated copy as the Xbox is sensitive to those kind of cds.

360 reads game discs but it won't play game and it says play DVD


The problem is that the laser is either dying out, is dirty, or is not getting enough power.

so try to fix it using these steps...

- first open the 360 and pull out the dvd drive and open it up too.

- clean everything out good with compressed air, and q-tips dipped in alcohol.

- now you need to adjust the power going to the laser.Sometimes you may have to try multiple settings before getting it justright. Just keep adjusting the resistance lower and lower until itworks.

- if you tried multiple settings and still get the errors, then either get a replacement drive, or a new laser for it. Click Here for how to properly install the new laser.

- if you get a replacement drive, please not that there is a key in the pcb of the drive that must match the key from the motherboard, so you must either spoof firmware with the key, or swap out the old pcb board and put it in to the new drive.
