I kinda had the same problem what it is doing, is that the drive is not able to read those types of things anymore if you air dusted it out and everything and it still does not work, then you need a new drive.

Xbox 360 will not read games but plays DVD and CD


It would be best to take it to someone who mods them as they will know if it is the correct drive and if it is running modded firmware(as they are the guys who do this regularly) and if the drive has been set up correctly. They also may be able to extract the drive key and reflash the original(or modded if you preferred) firmware for the drive.

Xbox open tray problem can read cd`s but not games


The DVD reader portion of your CD drive has broken. This is a common problem, but an expensive fix. You can send it in to microsoft for a repair, or buy your own XBOX CD drive and replace it yourself. Alternatively, you can buy the HD DVD reader from Microsoft and play games that way.

I put the disc in and it keeps saying open tray


Hi,

The Console is not able To read The Disk.
First Try A DVD Movie ?
Then A Music/Audio CD ?
If it reads either Or Both Of These, the Dual-Layer Laser Has Failed, Which powers up with increase To read Dual-Layer ( X-Box 360 Games ) A New Or Replacement DVD Drive, Will Be Required.

My game wont read on my xbox 360


I believe you can use a DVD cleaner without voiding your warrenty. If you have a warrenty then call Xbox tech support to get it fixed. And if you don't buy an extended warrenty for $50 and then call them and tell them you need your Xbox fixed

steps to be followed.

  1. step 1 Purchase a DVD lens cleaning disc.
  2. Step 2 Turn on your television and Xbox just like you normally would to play a video game.
  3. Step 3 Open your Xbox's disc drive, placing the lens cleaning disc in the drive face-up. A lens cleaning disc works by sweeping small brushes over the laser lens surface. These brushes are located on the bottom of the disc; be careful not to touch the brushes---the microfiber brushes are delicate and can become damaged easily.
  4. Step 4 Close the Xbox and let the machine power up; make sure your television's volume is turned on. Your Xbox should automatically take you to the system's standard CD player menu. If this does not happen, select the menu manually using your Xbox controller.
  5. Step 5 Begin playing the first track of the cleaning disc. Listen carefully, because audio directions will play indicating the steps necessary for properly using your cleaning disc. Each brand of lens cleaning disc will have different steps, but they are typically very simple, involving tasks like skipping ahead to different tracks or briefly putting the CD in fast forward mode. If you cannot hear the audio directions, consult the written instructions packaged with the disc.
  6. Step 6 Remove the cleaning CD after you've followed the audio directions---a typical cleaning cycle only takes a few minutes, and the audio directions will tell you when cleaning is complete.
  7. Step 7 Carefully place the lens cleaning disc back in its case, avoiding damaging the brushes on the bottom. Lens cleaners can be used multiple times, so plan on using the cleaning disc regularly to help avoid future problems with your Xbox console.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
