My x-box 360 doesnt play games but plays cd,dvd

DOes it read to play this game put in a xbox 360 console? If so someone replaced the original dvd drive and didnt flash the firmware or did it wrong. If it doesnt say that then its more then likely a dirty or broken laser. Very cheap part to replace they are on ebay just need to make sure which laser you have before buying one.

My xbox 360 will not read a disk it anly makes a clicking sound and hums

The laser could be dirty, or wearing out. Try to us a disc drive cleaner CD and see if that helps. If not, something in the drive (ie the laser) is going bad and will need a replacement.

What does it mean when a xbox360 doesnt read games

it means that the disc reading laser is not reading the data encrypted into the discs therefore making it unreadable. if that happens to all games i would replace the laser

My 360 is not reading any discs

If your Xbox 360 is not reading discs this is because the sensors on the back of the drive have overheated, to fix it you need to send it in to Microsoft or you can fix it yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

My xbox 360 keeps saying reading reading reading then says open tray what do i do

okay that sounds like the magnet in the cd case is your xbox360 and access your cd on the internet if u cant.when you do,on the drive there is a circle pry it off with a flathead screwdriver and you should see a circle looking thing that moves around freely when you move it.okay cut out a circular piece of index card or thick paper that could fit on the circle and place the big metal circle you pryed off back on the drive.reassemble the should read now.if that doesnt work then it could be the placement of the laser.dissassemble your xbox again or do this also before you reassembled your cd drive by removing the 4 screws holding it together.{if its a hitachi lite(H-L} drive it will be 6} and remove the top cover there should be a lense thing that moves back and forth when it reads the games move it as close as you can to the {spinner} make sure there is no dust or hair on the rails and reassemle your xbox360.there ya go.oh if you here a buzz when u play the game dont worry about it its not gonna blow up lol.

My XBox 360 won't read my games

ok the problem is your cd drive. you need to clean the eye of your cd drive because that could b the problem. if that doesnt work, you will probably have 2 replace ur cd drive.

The PS2 console is giving message that disc cannot be read or sometimes no disc.

Try a dvd lens cleaner because it sounds like the lens may be dirty. Make sure to use a DVD lens cleaner not a CD lens cleaner. If that doesnt work you will probably have to get the lens replaced which since its sony and they've been around for years it should be rather cheap. Hope that helps you out!

Sounds like you have a faulty DVD drive. If you are still in warranty Microsoft should either repair/replace the console, call them and explain the situation. Otherwise, if your warranty is out, you could replace the DVD yourself, there are many places to pick up the drives, ebay is a good place to start also would be able to help.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
