Well, it seems your dvd drive isnt working properly.

First Id suggest cleaning it with something similiar to this:
http://www.amazon.com/Intec-G8215-Xbox-Lens-Cleaning/dp/B00006DY1L

If that doesnt help after a few trys.

You would need to replace your drive, but before you replace it make sure it really doesnt work.

Replaceing the drive is not a simple task but before replaceing the whole drive you might want to try this for example:

Xbox 360 only play dvds and cds if i put in a game it will read and then after like 8 seconds in will say open tray


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once you stop the drive taking too much heat you will be fine.

Hi i have a sharp hp22 i ham trying to play normal dvds on it ? is that possible


All Blu Ray players that I have dealt with are what is termed "backwards compatible" which means they play Blu Ray, standard DVDs,music CDs,MP3s,recorded CDs and DVDs, etc. yours should have no problem reading and playing back your "normal" DVDs. Good luck !

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty
