Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

XBox won't always let me play the same game

My XBox will play the same game sometimes but then I go through a period when it won't even try to load, just keeps saying Open Tray. Other times it will almost load but then comes up with the message "This game needs to be inserted into an XBox 360 console" How crazy is that ! The console is only six months old.

    I don't think solution #1 is particularly helpful - the console is only six months old and for the price I paid for it, I wouldn't consider it to be CHEAP. Not very helpful, thanks.

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it


You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

I cant play games


This message sometimes comes up if you have copied the game to the 360`s hard drive , the game will only be playable if it is in the DVD drive as the 360 needs to know if you still own that game . It will spin the drive to see if you still own it and then load it off the hard Drive .

Loud buzzing noise


Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

Circular scratches on xbox 360 disc wont work in some areas of game.


Hi,
The only real solution is to take it to your nearest DVD- Video Rental Store, or store that has a Disk Polishing Machine. The scratches are where the laser head, has scuffed the Disk. Therefore normal Polishing Won,t Work.
The disk needs to be resurfaced.
