    It happens about 2/5 times for me. The disk are nice and clean but it still has problems. It comes up saying, "To play this disc, put it in an Xbox 360 console" then there is a bunch of Japanese writing and stuff. It is getting annoying to have to keep cleaning my discs.

    yeah i have the same problem, it could take me up to 20 switching it on and off to get a game working and it plays dvds just fine. i have no idea what it could be becuase if it was the laser it wouldnt play dvds either.. any suggestions?

The xbox 360 is a poorly designed pos
the too small cooling system (see red ring of death) draws all cooling air through the dvd drive. set the xbox on the floor and all the dust and lint is drawn though the underside entry vents into the drive where it falls into upward facing laser lens.
With monotonous regularity -drive failure.
Most of the time the drive can be cleaned with directed compressed air, through the partially open drive bay onto the lens.
Compressed air is available in a can with a tiny directing tube at any pc store.
or any vaccuum cleaner with a blow function and a piece of fish tank air tube to direct the air.
Dont open the case to clean the drive, the seals need to remain intact for the 'red ring of death' failure, or M$ will not honor the warranty and replace the faulty gpu
to reduce future occurence, it will happen again, do not use the console or store it, on the floor

When i load a game in my x box 360 it says reading then open tray close tray


the firmware in your xbox 360 is corrupt ,... you need to reflash your dvd rom drive in the 360 with new firmware,... id recommend using a new iXtreme firmware (ix1.6) so that you can play backups of your games too..

When i put in a brand new game disk,it starts to read,but it but it doesn't read the new disk.it just says"open tray"


put in a game and as soon as it starts to say "reading" give the old box a few taps on top where the dvd drive is at. Keep tapping until it reads your game. May not work the first time so keep trying. This usually happens due to poor or loose laser mounts. If this doesnt work your gonna need to open it up. You can look at You Tube for that. Good Luck.

Xbox 360


Hi,
Get A New DVD drive.
I,d suggest That Your Laser is,nt kicking up the required Voltage To read The dual-Layers ?
X-Box games Are single Layer DVD. 360s Are Dual Layer ( DL )
Also try An Original Or Over 5 gig DVD ( Thats most likely to Be Dual Layer )
