yeah my xbox 360 does the same thing theres a software that fixes that you have to go with someone that burns games for xbox just asked for the software that converts the xbox so it can read games use that if you buy the software. the way it works you have to put the cd in the xbox before you put the game that you bought but every time you want to play the game you have to put the software disc then you put your game than it will work

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .

It will read some disks but not all disks and the ones it readds i try to play latter and it dont read


i had this problem with my xbox and its due to either the laser or the magnet within the disc drive that holds the disc in place. the magnet may have come loose which mean u can either open the drive up to try and reposition it, or replace the drive all together. my suggestion would be to send the xbox to microsoft if under warranty or send it to a third party company to see if they can fix it. buying a new drive for your xbox involves some very complex firmware flashing which is not advised

Though i fixed the Disc Read Error myself within an hour but please test the below method at your OWN Risk. Please also note that microsoft is no longer providing Extended warranty for E74Error.

Check out this DIY Video Guide,that explains step by step instructions to fix Disc Read Error yourself within an hour. It also provides the money back guarantee in case you are not satisfied. As i fixed my Xbox myself so i thought to share it with you guys.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


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.
