360 wont read games

360 wont read my games. I tried all of my games on a different one and they worked. Do I need to change the lens or the whole dvd drive?

    I Purchased the new GTA 4 when i put it in my xbox 360 it didnt load up. instead this white screen appeared and it had different types of language. THE English language said please put a xbox 360 game into the console. this is a 360 game. However after putting the disk into the xbox over again the console started an upgrade. i was than able to play. After i turned the xbox off for 10 minutes and turned it back on the game wouldnt load up again. i dont understand if the system upgraded then why want the game start when i want to play it again.

XBOX 360 Elite won't play disc; says "reading" then "open tray".


If the console has never been opened to change the dvd drive then eather your laser lens or one of the 2 motors in the drive needs to be changed. 90% of the time its the laser lens. You cant just use any laser for the xbox 360. There are 3 different drives. Toshiba, BenQ, Samsung, so you have to see what drive model you have before you try to order one yourself. I repair these often with 99% success.

Open up the DVD drive, clean the laser lens with a Qtip and alcohol, push the laser lens cradle next to the center (spinner) and lastly dust off the insides of the console. This works all the time. I've done this more than 10 times on different consoles.

Lens cleaners can actually do more harm than good, if under warranty, send it back, try all different formats of disc, if none work you may need to disassemble unit and clean laser with a cotton tip, alternatively you may need to replace the laser. Good Luck.

Your issue is likely a dirty lens. First step, try a DVD lens cleaner, if not, you may have to take the drive apart to manually swab the lens with some rubbing alcohol.

Pick up in the DVD is bad or weak and will need replacing.
Or replace the whole DVD unit.

Make sure the disks are clean and not too scratched up

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.
