    What exactly is going on? Do you click on the game and it doesn't load, or is it not recognizing the game disk?

Hello,

If once you put a game in the disc tray but it is does not load, you still have the dashborad on the screen or its just says "Reading" then "Open tray". You'll need to check first that you didn't set your Xbox 360 to boot to the dashboard.
To check this turn on the Xbox 360 with no discs in the disc tray. Go to the System section then Console Settings then Start up make sure it's set to Disc not Dashborad.
If you select disc the Xbox 360 will play the disc when you turn it on. But if you select dashboard the Xbox 360 will stay on the dashboard when you turn it on.

If you did so and still not loading, try another thing. Make sure this issue isn't with this disc only. Try some other discs and DVDs if you have to make sure is it an issue with this disc specifically and by then you'll need to get another disc or it's the console itself.
You'll need also to make sure that your Xbox 360 is not overheating and it's in a well ventilated place.
Check that the date and time are set correctly. To check this go on the System section then Console Settings then Clock then Date and Time. If it's not set to the correct date and time, set them correctly.
The last step to try is to unplug the Hard Drive and try some discs without the Hard Drive attached just to test is it the Hard Drive or the Xbox 360 itself faulty. If you did so and it worked without the Hard Drive, it would be obvious that it is the Hard Drive's issue.

Take care.

How do i get my xbox 360 to load faster?


Hello there,
The Xbox is not much like a computer where you can upgrade all the components. You cannot make the load times faster on the Xbox. You can; however, try to replace the IDE cable of both the Hard Drive an the Optical drive with ATA 133 IDE cables. This will void your warranty and might not speed up your system.
Also, make sure that the system is clean of dust and debris.
I hope this has helped. Thumbs up are much appreciated.

That's weird, if the Xbox needs a driver it should be installed or come on a Cd.

So the games don't play ?

Call support and threaten that you'll bring it back, it'll get them to help better.
