My Xbox 360 won't play a game.

Hey my Xbox will not play a certain game,I have cleaned the game but it still won't work.There are a few tiny scratches but nothing that seems like it would hinder it from playing.Also the problem just started one day when I was playing the game and thought I should put the Xbox into another position to help it cool down when this happened the Xbox said cannot read disk and ever since then the game will not work.Please help me this is one of the few games I enjoy playing.

The same thing happened to my old gamecube games after i let someone borrow them you should probably clean them with hydrogen peroxide and/or dish soap though if you use the soap make sure you don't leave streaks. if this don't work bring it somewhere where you can have it buffered smoothing the scratches out. if you have heard of game crazy I'm almost certain they usually will buffer it

XBOX 360; Certain disks aren't reading in my 360 it just says open tray, any advice

Check the ones you can't play for scratches on the disc surface - they may be bad and the drive can't read them. You can try to clean them.

My XBOX 360 is consistently freezing up and won't play

One thing to certainly check, is that the Xbox is broken, not just the game. Try playing all of your games, and keep in mind which ones weren’t working properly. Then, take those over to a friend’s house, and try playing them on his/her console. If they seem to work on one, but not the other, there may well be something faulty about your Xbox.
It is entirely possible that a scratched or dirty disc could be causing all these problems. So what to do about it? Well, the simple thing would be just clean off the disc. Wipe it down with a soft cloth, and give it another try. Another idea would be to rip the game to your Xbox 360’s hard drive. There is more than plenty space on it, and it should play more smoothly from there.

Xbox 360 thinks it`s an Xbox and won`t register a 360 game


Strange Issue, but I think its a possible solution to it. I would say the drive and/or laser needs to be changed.

My xbox won't launch certain games

You could try deleting more memory so it can run your games faster and play certain games that need a certain amount of memory to play

Games want play

its highly possible that the disc is scratched (a scratch in a certain spot can cause a game to mess up at that precise spot in game play, i.e. when u try to start a match or start up the game) if u get it buffered (at a gamestop or the like) it might work again.
