Try a music cd, movie dvd, game disc.

which ones do not work?

if it will not play just one type or only 1 game i woudl check the game itself. if it will not play say games or dvds but will play cds then your laser needs calibreation.

here is a link to explain this.

doign this on the xbox will void warranty if there is any but also requires special tools for proper disassembly soyou don't damage the case.

    the only way to self repair it is to look for a youtube video to show you how to take it apart then read the link i sent you about calibrating the laser.



    if the laser is not fried calibrating it will fix it but as i said opening a warrantied xbox will void it

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Let the Xbox update itself, when the update is done, you will be sent to the Dashboard. :)
But, try to update it via Internet (Xbox Live)

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

It could be because your CD/DVD drive is dying, the best fix is to replace it. I can replace your Drive cheap and fast if you feel it has come to that point.

Hi,
xboxes are my speciality, spent about 2-3 years repairing them.
you,ll have a dirty or worn laser unit.
thats why it won,t read disks.
As for your other fault, regarding unloading.
this is the hard-drive, being 6 years old, it,s worn out.
Constantly read/writing Data. and the possibility of being full of dust. it,s had a great life.
i,m in birmingham ( UK )
If you need a service-repair-replacement.
Please contact me for further details.
