Open the disc tray and blow inside a couple times real hard to get the dust off of the glass laser eye lens. You can also buy a can of Airduster which will do the same thing. And if you really feel like it, you can remove the cover of the xbox, get a cotton swab, dip it in rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye lens.
If the unit is dirty, this will fix it.

If cleaning doesn't help it, then you probably have a faulty laser lens circuit. This is caused by leaving xbox on it's side and not flat like they we're originaly designed to do . Putting the xbox on it's side and standing it up will ruin your xbox and can cause the red ring of death!

My xbox 360, Reads To play this disc put in xbox 360 console! How can i fix it?


I recommend clearing your system cache. To do this go to My Xbox > System Settings > Memory, highlight your storage disk, press Y and select "clear cache." Try to run the disk again. If the Xbox is still failing to properly read the disk I suggest bringing it to a gaming store near you and have them put a new drive in it. This is most definitely a hardware error, and has nothing to do with your disks.

My xbox 360 wont read any disk, what do i do?


If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

Unclean disk / frezzing


The laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive. You can either replace the laser if you know how to open up the dvd drive, or just replace the whole drive. You can get them off of Ebay.

(sometimes) won't read disk, just says open tray


This is more than likely your laser that is dead or dying and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be careful when buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage your machine or at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

It could also be the logic board or the drive belt too, if the logic board is faulty no matter how many lasers you try it will do the same, the fix is to replace the logic board.

if its the drive belt well this is very easy to try and is what id try first, open your 360 tray and look inside the 360 you should be able to see the drive belt, make sure its attached properly and then take this out. replace it with a new one and see if this recifies your problems.

SOMETIMES if a drive belt is stretched it will not close properly and then a fault like yours will occur. its all a matter of eliminations. Drive belts can be found on ebay.

Unreadible Disk as soon as I put the disk in.


do other games work? if not your magnet in your xbox console disk drive may be defective and i would suggest returning it to Microsoft to have them look at it. If other games do work your fallout 3 disk may be severely scratched or the magnetic strip on it may have gotten demagnetized or otherwise damaged and will most likely need to be replaced...sorry

Hi, I'm still unable to update the xbox 360


Hi,
your probably not doing anything Wrong.
did you boot the console then eject the draw, and put the update disk In ?
it should read the disk, then tell you it,s an update, and ask you if you want to update the console.
Make sure your hard-drives connected.
The only other thing i can suggest, is to make sure your 360 reads the disks or media your using.
if you try burning a music cd, and see if the 360 recognises it, you,ll know the media or Blank CD/DVD is good for the 360 to read. another method is to add a dummy file of about 80-100mb.
this ensures the 360 sees the disk.
try different media/disks and different methods.
if it still does,nt work for you. mail me your e-mail address and i,ll forward you 1 already made.

regards Mike @ compurepair.

Disk case


yea what i did was put a fan infront of it blowing into the holes on the xbox 360 to keep it cool and it worked.
Just try to look after your xbox 360 like clean of the dust, keep it cool, don't put it in a spot that it will heat up quick, don't play for to long like 5-6 hours straight and don't get it chipped. Do this and i am 99.99% sure your xbox 360 will be fine.

Xbox 360 unplayabledisk problem


When does this happen?  Does it happen when you put a game disk in (a game that has not been burned or copied to a dvd disk). Or does this happen when you put burned audio cd in?
