SOURCE: xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!

I would call 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them the problems youre having with what is a relatively new machine.

Xbox realized that the consoles were peppered with problems like this and extended the warranty from one year to three.

SOURCE: i put a new drive in my xbox 360 and it wont play games

every DVD drive is "married" to the motherboard. They both have a special key that keeps them together. Without that key the motherboard will not accept the DVD drive and it won't be able to play games ever again. You can extract the key from you old DVD drive and "spoof" it to the new one. That's the only way it'll work.

SOURCE: xbox will play dvds and cds but not games

the laser is faulty its not a very difficuty job to do yourself and you can get a laser off ebay cheap enough
just make sure you get the correct laser for the drive,
google ebox 360 drive types and you will see what make of dvd you have, if you need help dissmantling the xbox or installing the laser youtube is amazing for it all, hope you get sorted.

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

I want to setup my xbox to store music it is an xbox 360 elite


You can store all your music on a USB stick drive and plug that into a usb port. You can stream Music from your computer over your network to the 360.

you can also burn it onto CDs then rip them on the xbox 360.

unfortunately due to stupid DRM (digital rights management) you can't drag and drop music onto the 360 hard drive.

Play for only 10 mins then goes off


Most likely, it's overheating. I recommend buying an Xbox 360 fan.

X box 360 wont rip all songs from music cd.


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/howto/mp11/xbox360towmp11xp_stepbystep.aspx

you can always try streaming the music from your pc to the xbox, look on the link above for more info

I think the problem you are having may be protected content,
songs that have embedded content protection may not transfer to the Xbox 360.

Sorry I cannot be of anymore assistance
