The disk drive in my xbox 360 wont play games


Buy a new laser specifically for the brand of dvd drive, like phillips, hitachi, ect... only, the laser, if you purchase the whole dvd drive, then you have to flash it and all...too complicated. just the laser assembly and reinstall and enjoy.

Fixed unplayable disk error but now i get told to put disk in an xbox 360 console


Lol then no sir you did not fix it. Sorry.
"to play this disc, please put it in an Xbox360" error is caused by one of two things.
1) Dead/Dying laser- Replace it or try to adjust the variable resistor on the laser lens. (USE a micrometer on the 20k setting and a 1.8mm flathead)
2) Incorrect drive key- If you "fixed" your initial problem by buying a new dvd drive, and putting it into the console. You no longer have the correct dvd key to match the Xbox360 motherboard. IF both drives are the same brand. You can simply remove the green pcb from the old drive and put it into the new drive. (be CAREFUL with the ribbons!!) If you did purchase a new drive, and already threw away the old drive, you're screwed the Xbox will NEVER play a game again, unless you download it from Xbox Live.

To play this disk put it in an X-Box 360 console??? Nice message after I replaced the disk drive. I bought a new driver made for the 360 and it still only shows disks for DVD ??


The dvd drive and the motherboard have a key that must match each other. The xbox 360 dvd drives are not plug-and-play. You must first extract the key from the original drive and spoof firmware to make the new drive match the key on the motherboard. There is an easy way though.... just take the pcb board out of the old drive and stick it into the new one, then everything should work fine withough messing with the firmware. If you need more help, just ask on our xbox 360 dvd drive repair forum

Xbox360 wont play games only dvd


You can't just replace the drive with a working drive on the xbox 360. the drive is married to the mainboard with a special key. If you replacing the drive with a drive that's the same brand/model them you can take the logic board from the old drive and put it in the replacement drive. otherwise you will have to extract the key from your old drive and patch in the new drive. not an easy task.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.

Pick up in the DVD is bad or weak and will need replacing.
Or replace the whole DVD unit.

Make sure the disks are clean and not too scratched up

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
