UNABLE TO PLAY GAMES

ALL OF A SUDDEN I HAVE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS PLAYING MOST OF MY GAMES ON XBOX 360. WHEN I INSERT A GAME, IT WILL MAKE A LOUD "SCRATCHING" NOISE AND THEN IT WILL SAY "PLEASE INSERT A DISC INTO THE XBOX 360 CONSOLE". WHEN I THEN STOP IT TO TAKE THE DISC OUT,THE DISC DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ROTATING LIKE IT SHOULD. THE ONLY GAME IS ROCKBAND-WEIRD THAT IT WON'T PLAY ANY OTHERS. PLEASE HELP!

    My xbox has been acting wierd since a month ago. First time I noticed was when it made this wierd scraching noise and then my halo disk no longer worked. I thought it was just a little problem but then just a week ago it happened to my call of duty disk and instead it had scraches all over it after the sound happened. Finaly yesterday the same thing happened to my guitar hero game. Now I have THREE of my best games I cant even play.

The first dude, if it only happens to a specific game disc, try playing it without the hard drive, if it plays without the hardrive, you need to perform system maintainance, go to system settings, memory, select the harddrive, press y for device options, now if you see the rename or format option then you are in the right page, press this in sequence, x, x, left bumper, right bumper, x, x, select yes..

It could be that it is a pre-owned game, I have had problems with pre-owned games, and have bought a new game that has not been used. Also I have just recently bought that game and had to do and update to the xbox 360 when trying to play that game, you should have got a message to update the system when trying to start the game.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd


Hi

By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

Xbox 360 will not play Star Wars Force Unleashed


I'm having the same problem, I think it has problems because the cutscenes are rendered in real time (though I can't confirm this).

You should try copying the game to your hard drive, then running off the hard drive, and see how you go. I'm about to go and do that myself.

Good luck :)
