First of all, the 360s could be differnt drive models ie: benQ or jasper....

Next things you should do is since you have voided your warrenty on the one 360 you should go fix the rrod which is a simple solution. You are going to need a heat gun and thermal paste.

I reflowed my xbox 360 all ok all ok no rrod but i have the same problem mine plays dvd no game discs. tryed putting the drive in another xbox but i think you have to have a dvd key. help


There is no Key for the Disc Drive. There is a website www.videogamall.com . they sell replacement Drives Verify that when you buy a replacement drive you order one that is the same type as the one you currently have and this should correct the issue.

I was getting an error message when trying to play a dvd or game in my xbox 360 so i replaced the dvd drive with a brand new one now it only plays dvds, when i put a game in it says play dvd? can you help...


Are you sure that the DVD drive that you put in is the same brand aas the one you took out? microsoft has 3 different suppliers for dvd drives. BenQ, Phillips, and Samsung. Also, check the lens for dirt or scratches.

Xbox only reads dvd not games


Laser is knackered mate, could try pot calibration otherwise you will need to replace the DVD drive

*You cannot just replace the DVD drive you need to extract a unique Key from the drive and make sure the new drive has this Key

I have an xbox 360 which contains a philips/benq


ok....if the dvd you bought is the EXACT same part #, and it does not have a board made to it, you should be able to just "drop it in". the system will think its the same thing. if its a generic or different part #, then you will have to "flash" the BIOs on the board for the dvd you are trying to use. its a pain, but first you have to find the correct flash version. if that is needed, there are many forums on upgrading and flashing that unit. id put in the new drive and at least try it

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games


Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

Xbox 360 will not read certain disks, some work, some dont...???


Hi,

this sounds like a gpu fault, or a laser read fault.
i,d return it to M$ for a replacement again, or alternatively look for a good 360 repair specialist in your area. you need the rrod kit, or a relacement dvd drive. i,d think more on the line of dvd laser if your getting no red-rings. don,t waste your money on a laser replacement, 9 times out of 10 they don,t work. go for a new drive, and have the drives logic board swapped.
you can find out about this on xbox forums, and tutorials.

Unplayable disc


There is a good chance you DVD drive might have either a faulty motor or laser. In this case if you have any type of warranty you should use it but if you don't you'll have to purchase either a new XBox 360 or a new DVD drive.

The new DVD drive will not be able play games if you simply swap the drives. In order to have it play games you'll have to flash the old Key from the broken drive onto the replacement drive.

Either that or if your system is still under the 3 year warranty from RROD by Microsoft you can try to induce RROD on your XBox 360 and take up a claim with them. Most of the time they send u a refurbrished XBox 360 or a new one.

Xbox 360 will play movies but not games


you cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
