I am almost 100% certain that the warranties of xbox 360 consoles have been extended 3 years.

I also had this problem some months ago, and Im sorry to say that I was told the problem is in the hardware. I had to send my xbox in, and they sent me a brand new one, fully covered under warranty.

Give xbox a call... 1-800-4MY-XBOX, ask about the warranty of your system, and also let them know your problem.
The only way I ever got any games to work with this problem, was to open and close the tray over and over until it finally worked, so I finally just sent it in. Good luck.

I reflowed my xbox 360 all ok all ok no rrod but i have the same problem mine plays dvd no game discs. tryed putting the drive in another xbox but i think you have to have a dvd key. help


There is no Key for the Disc Drive. There is a website www.videogamall.com . they sell replacement Drives Verify that when you buy a replacement drive you order one that is the same type as the one you currently have and this should correct the issue.

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.
