This is known problem, the xbox itself on some occasions can scratch the disk and cause a scratch ring around the outer area of the disk. To repair the disk, you can purchase some vehicle rubbing compound and buff it off with a terri cotton cloth, or a smooth white t-shirt. You can put up with this intermittent problem, or you can send it in to xbox if you are within your warranty rights.

I have a xbox 360 slim and i want to play a game without the disk i have an external hard drive and a usb is there a way to do this and if so can i play online?


yes there is a way to do this but no you cannot play online. Xbox live has a verification system and can detect modified xbox systems. Once a Xbox is detected as modified, it is banned from xbox live and would require a clean code to get back on after the system is no longer modified.

if you are in the united states, the practice to modchipping is illegal and the purchase of such items are a felony.

My black ops is odd. I bought it new and it was great. My xbox live account is fine. I've cleaned the system cache and like it will let me play campaign and xbox live for like 1 round or mission then...


Check the inside ring of the disc, is there any cracking? If so the only real solution is to buy another disk but to be sure it's not the system try another black ops disc in your system.

Bought used xbox 360. It came with a lego star wars game. That game plays correctly every time. Bought a used Halo 3 game. When you put it in, the system thinks it is a DVD. Took the game back and got...

There could be one of 2 things going on here. Ether you are having a software or hardware problem. To address the software problem you will need to connect the XBOX 360 to XBOX Live and download the latest updates to the system. Most likely this is your issue as the XBOX 360 came out before Halo 3 and you do not have an OS updates on the system to load it properly.

If you do not have an LIVE account. You might trying to check with a friend to see if he will log into your system to run the updates. Another option is that they sell just One Month LIVE card access cards for around 8 Dollars. These cards will let you get on line and get the updates with out having to get a one year subcription. Note alot of your newer games give you a One Month card with the game when you by it new to be able to get any updates you might need.

Now if the updates do not fix the problem then you have some kind of hardware problem and you may need to check with your local repair shop to see if they can fix tthe problem.

Hope this helps

My xbox 360 wont play discs - keeps repeating open tray, I can play demos and xbox live but not discs or movies, any tips?? Thanks!


I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!

Game wont play even after cleaned


Hi, This has happened to my before.  I believe you are talking about when you move the XBOX while the disk is spinning and a spiral ring is scratched into the disc.  The only thing you can do to fix this is to buy another copy of the disc, or if you have the latest updates on the console (which is only possible if you use XBOX LIVE), you can rent a copy of the game and install it on the Hard Drive.  If you do install the game, don't throw away your old game, because you will still need to put it in the disc drive.  Hope this helps! :)

Xbox360 putting ring around disc


This happens when the disc touches the laser lens when the console is moved while the game is in it playing. You can fix this by either buying a monster clean screen cleaner or just go to your local Gamestop or Gamecrazy and have them buff your disk. It happened to me a few times, i got it buffed and everything is brand new.

Xbox 360 wont play games after a couple of times being played


STOP

the drive has been dropped or kicked while in the horizontal position and the laser head is bent out of place and is touching the disk.
this will cause all disks played in the unit to be damaged and may render them unusable in any system.
