Xbox 360 will only read dvds shows reading dvd


This means the DVD key went bad. If you flashed your firmware or have a jtag, this is an easy fix, but otherwise I would check craigslist or call Microsoft

My xbox can only read DVD's. When a game is inserted, it only offers the "Play DVD" option, and then cannot load the software. I can however, read DVDs.


This error usually indicated that you are not using the original DVD drive that came with your 360. If someone that wasn't experienced attempted a DVD drive repair by swapping your drive this is the result. It can only be fixed by someone with experience in this area and they will require the original DVD drive (regardless of condition usually). I can fix this for you if you can provide the original drive, contact me at jordan@jordanselectronics.com

My xbox 360 plays games as dvds!?


I doubt you put all your games :). your XBOX 360 is probably hacked to play homebrew games. that happens when usually a new protection is enabled on newer games, every several months new protection is issued to restrict piracy. the only thing is to get it hacked with a newer DVD-ROM security override.

Every time i put a game in my xbox it reads open tray


This sound like the same problem that i was having, The DVD-ROM Drive that plays the Games/DVDs does not see that the game or dvd is in. i was told if you gently hit the top where you put the game in the rom you can not down the magnet the see tells the console that the game is in. Do this at you own risk, or just send it back to Microsoft if you still have a warrenty.

MY xbox 360 will read dvds but when i enter a game it goes to the disc error screen


Have you tried to get this system flashed?

What's happening is .. which could be a couple of things..

1.) Your Firmware board on your ODD Drive is telling the Drive to spin at a certain speed. The speed its currently spinning at is too slow to read a game, but fast enough to read a DVD disc.

2.) This could also be a motor or laser issue.


I would suggest sending it in for repair. There is nothing you can do without opening it to fix it.

Bought new dvd drive benq 6038


LOL well 9 months later, I'll answer your question. EVERY Xbox360 dvd drive is "married"to it's motherboard. The communication between the drive and motherboard is encrypted with a key (aka- DVD-key) IF you don't flash the dvd-key from the original drive to the replacement then there is no way the Xbox will ever be able to play anythngg other than music and dvds. You NEED the correct key to encrypt/decrypt the 360 games so the motherboard can understand it.

Playstation 2 wont read games


I used to have a ps2 and experienced this exact problem. In my case the lense was dirty, I opened my ps2 and VERY carefuly wiped my lens with methelated spirit (becareful, some methelated spirits that contain oils ment to prevent their consumption, these must be avoided!)then blew out the whole system with a hair dryer. Reassembled it and VWALA! it worked like it was bran new or even better!
