Yes this is a common problem ,and not hard
to fix yourself . First of it may just be a weak laser
and their fairly cheap 20.00 or so. But there is the
possibility that the spindle motor is weak.

So what I do is first go on lamma or Rich PSX
sites and find out make and model drive you have
then go to ebay and buy a replacement drive
when you receive your drive open it up and disconnected
all the ribon cable, in some drives you will need to unsolder them . take the new drives P.C. board out
and throw it away . now remove the P.C. board form
your old drive and install it in the new one .

That will 100% fix the problem

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

It will not read games just dvds


Hello,


This is caused by your drive and laser.

1 question... Have you recently tried to Mod this system?


moving on....

DVDs take less spin power to read, games take more. So, in result your system reads only DVDs because your Drive isn't spinning fast enough.

It would need to be repaired. HOWEVER,

If this system has been modded, it has potentially damaged your drive and system.

Hey my xbox wont read my games but will still read my dvds and cds with out a prob also my xbox has started scratcging my games as well any one know what to do.


You have two unrelated issue's. First the lasers weak and unable
to increase to sufficient brightness to read duel layer disk ( GAMES)
The laser will need to be replaced. second ,if your getting ring type
scratches then the drive is doing what's called over focus . pushing
the lens assembly in to the disk as it's spinning.

Recommendation is to have the whole drive replaced and swap
out the P.C. board to the new drive.

if the disk is still spinning when the tray open causing scratches
then there is a communication error from the C.P.U. to the drive
this will require you to have the C.P.U. re-flowed to remedy
this problem.

If you need more info ask

Xbox 360 will not read discs


Try using different sorts of discs in the xbox, original xbox games, xbox 360 games, dvds, etc, and if nothing reads in the unit, you need to replace the laser assembly. But seeing how the unit is less than a year old, take it back to retailer or send to microsoft. Good Luck.

It wont read 360 games but it reads original Xbox games


cd drive error, if its an older xbox thats what it would be, either that or disk read error thing, i would suggest taking it in somewhere and have people look at it. or check the xox 360 games to see if there are any big scratches. that would be a big problem if there r scratches.
