Take a can of air and blow it into the drive just to make sure there is no debris or dirt on the laser.

If you do that and the system still won't play games, then at that point you know that either the laser is bad or the drive is bad, usually replacing the drive is the easier thing to do.

Our game appears to have a scratch on it and won'at work


Hi there,

I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.

Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).

Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.

"
  1. Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
  2. Scroll down to My Xbox
  3. Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
  4. This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
  5. On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance."

My daughters xbox 360 sometimes plays for awhile, and other times says cant read disk when her game will play it either freezes up or just quits then it says cant read disk


hi, how well does your daughter look after her games? if her disk's have scratches on them the xbox will have trouble reading it and will often do this. another cause is that the xbox is old the laser will be worn out and will take ages to load a game.

the 2 solutions are:
1. check the disk, if it is highly scratched go get it cleaned, most gaming stores will do it for a small fee
2. take apart the xbox (only if out of warranty and step-by-step instructions can be found on youtube) and clean it gently with a duster

My games are only loading about 3/4 then everything stops, the spinning curser and the loading bar. Iv tried even brand new games and the same happens.


This has happened to my game console as well. There is nothing you could about this apart from giving it to Sony or any other people that repairs game consoles to repair your game console.

My xbox is having troubles reading discs. It will sometime read a game as a dvd or even a cd, but wont go farther than a set screen. I have no red rings and have cleared my cache in memory settings. Dont...


You have a dirty laser or bad laser easy way to tell is to take your 360 apart and take the disc drive apart with the disc drive apart hook it back up to the 360 make sure to put the bottom shell back on the disc drive so you dont ground it out on the console. Look at your laser while it tries to read games. IF it produces a red beam try wiping it off with a qtip and rubbing alchol if that doesnt work you need a new laser which cost less then $10 on ebay. Hope this helps.

New game does not play-Msg says to clean disc but it is clean.


If the warranty is still good abandon trying to deal with bad repairs and demand a exchange, have them replace it.
