Heat has nothing to do with the 360 DVD drive...

He said he "replaced" the drive and now it will only play DVD movies...

This is because the old DVD drive key needed to be flashed to the new DVD drive.

There is also the possibility that the replacement drive was not the right drive in the first place as well...

This is a problem occurring in all the xbox 360 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur xbox 360 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

Bought new dvd drive benq 6038


LOL well 9 months later, I'll answer your question. EVERY Xbox360 dvd drive is "married"to it's motherboard. The communication between the drive and motherboard is encrypted with a key (aka- DVD-key) IF you don't flash the dvd-key from the original drive to the replacement then there is no way the Xbox will ever be able to play anythngg other than music and dvds. You NEED the correct key to encrypt/decrypt the 360 games so the motherboard can understand it.

Registers games as dvds


Your DVD drive is Failing, Time for a replacement
You should call Microsoft to see if your xbox360 is under warranty.

1 year warranty comes with xbox360.

if not then a fee will be applied to the cost, anywhere form 75 and up.

Good Luck

if it will not play any games but will play movies ect then the laser is out of allignment and needs to be serviced.

if you can only play origional xbox games then the same applies above.

if you can not play dvd movies, xbox games then you have to check to see if the disk drive is spining if so then it the lazer assembly that needs to be replaced

If no spining then the motor hub assembly needs to be replaced.

if you are getting any error codes red lights on the system please post them for further help.
