Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Posted by Anonymous on
Try running a CD\DVD-ROM cleaning disc in your 360. It could just be that the lense is dirty. If that doesn't work, then find your receipt to see if it is still under warranty. If it is, then send it in to Microsoft now. If it is not under warrany, then you have a couple of options. You can send it in to Microsoft and they will fix it for about $80 - $100 (you should expect to wait for it for 4-6 weeks). You could go out and buy an Arcade XBOX 360 console for $150 -$199 brand new and then put your XBOX hard drive into that one. You could find someone that knows how to put a new DVD-ROM into a 360, or you could try to do it yourself. Please be aware that there is more to it than just replacing it with another XBOX 360 hard drive. You will have to open your 360, hook it up to your computer, and "flash" it with a program that you download from the internet. It is a technical process, so if you're not up to it then don't try it; unless you just want to experiment with it and you don't really care if you turn it into a completely useless machine. Also, be leery of the average joe who tells you that they can do it just because they know how to change DVD-ROMs in computers. Like I said already, this is a pretty technical process and there is the chance that the "flash" won't go right and then your 360 will be only good for a paper-weight or door stop.
