Known fault unfortunately, you'll need to get it sent back to Microsoft and get it replaced/repaired. www.xbox.com/support is the link you need.

Wont read games only reads dvds


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

My system wll not read any of my disc.


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.

If you stop the heat you will have a working Xbox 360 again.

Does not recognize an xbox 360 disc : error message says to "...insert disc into an xbox 360..."


OK, this is a regular problem with x-box. Call 800 587 1102. It is their number for support. If it is under a year old they will fix it for free. YOu have to ship it to them. Takes 3-4 weeks.

My xbox 360 only pays old games(like pgr3) and not new games(like need for speed shift)


The laser in your XBox 360 is probably going out. When lasers start to fail, the first discs that stop reading are newer, dual layer, discs. Single layer discs will still read. As the laser wears out, single layer DVDs will stop reading but CDs will continue to read. Eventually, everything will stop reading and the laser will die.

You can find lasers for the XBox 360 all over the internet. Installing them isn't easy though.

Games won't read when they are insterted into my xbox 360


Your DVD-ROM drive2.gif has failed. I had this same issue about a year ago.You will need to call the XBOX support line if your system is still within the manufacturers warranty. (1-800-4MY-XBOX) If they will be doing the repairs you will normally get your system back within 3-4 weeks.
