    Sounds to me you might be close to the GPU going out, maybe dvds arent enough to heat the chip up hot enough to give you RROD.

It was a faulty powersupply that caused this problem faulty used error codes from llamma.com as posted by CTF1800. Futhermore I am using a modified PC PSU - cut the cables from the old Xbox PSU and soldered them onto the PC PSU and I did not need to strip the Xbox. Power Pinouts available on LLama.com

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

Xbox won't read my disk


try a music cd, movie dvd, game disc.

which ones do not work?

if it will not play just one type or only 1 game i woudl check the game itself. if it will not play say games or dvds but will play cds then your laser needs calibreation.

here is a link to explain this.
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4192169-fix_calibration_cd_dvd_drive_no_disc

doign this on the xbox will void warranty if there is any but also requires special tools for proper disassembly soyou don't damage the case.

The disk drive in my xbox 360 wont play games


Buy a new laser specifically for the brand of dvd drive, like phillips, hitachi, ect... only, the laser, if you purchase the whole dvd drive, then you have to flash it and all...too complicated. just the laser assembly and reinstall and enjoy.

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything


The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.
