Hi, Clear the system cache:
1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
2. Select Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
4. Select Clear System Cache. If Clear System Cache is not available, use the following controller button sequence to clear the system cache: X, X, left bumper,right bumper, X, X Note If you don't see a system maintenance prompt on the screen, try pressing the button sequence again.

Try playing discs without the hard drive in:
1. Turn off your console.
2. Locate the hard drive on your console.
Press the release button on the hard drive and lift the hard drive from the console.
Turn on your console.
3. Try to play a game disc.

If this resolves the problem, you will need to replace the hard drive.If not, do the same thing for your memory units. If it works without them, the they may be bad.

My xbox 360 says play dvd every time I put a game in. Am I doing something wrong? I'm new at this


How old is your Xbox? Have you tried to change your disc drive recently? If not it's most likely your lens is going bad or needs cleaned. Open the tray and use a q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean it.

Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

Xbox 360 doesnt acknowledge games in tray


Well call xbox tech support. Walk through it with them. they will be able to tell you whats wrong. If they have warranty it send it in. Do not try opening it on your own if it has warranty.

Once you find out from them what is wrong can search google for a solution

Xbox 360 error


You need to buy a disc to bly xbox games not xbox 360.
Thats quite funny. You should take back the game to the shop and get a new copy!!
