This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

My disc drive says play dvd at the dashboard when i have a 360 game in it and when i press play it reads, to play disc put it in a xbox 360 console


Hello, Thanks for using FixYa. If you are encountering this problem it means that your xbox360's dvd lens had gone bad. Lenses have life time. Try to get a DVD lens cleaner disk first then use it on your xbox. If this doesn't solve the problem you will then need to have your lens aligned or changed if aligning doesn't fix the issue. I hope this helps. Thanks and good day. - HotRatchet

Xbox 360 wont play games


If your Xbox 360 will not read your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive taking too much heat.

You need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a good guide

Hello i fixed a xbox 360 and tried playing a game and everything was ok but it says play dvd and it will not let me play a game but only dvd have any idea?


This is a drive fault,have you put the power and sata cables back in the drive upside down? turn then around and test again.The laser may just be dirty,carefully clean with some alchol and a q tip.Are you using the original drive for that console? if not you may have the wrong drive installed. Did you drop or bang the drive when it was removed, the laser could have become mis aligned, there are plenty of guides on youtube if you want to have a go at a fix yourself at re aligning.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

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
