This message comes up when the console identifies a game DVD as a movie DVD. You will see the same message if you put your game DVD into a standard DVD player.

Most people have been having their consoles replaced for this issue, hopefully yours is under warranty, you should get in contact with Microsoft.

You might want to try using a lens cleaner first before you decide to get the lens replace. If the lens cleaner does not work it will be time to replace the laser lens, it might not be a DIY.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi,

"insert DVD in a 360" problem - the laser is shot and so the drive needs replacing. I strongly sugggest you to get it repaired or just replace it if it is still under warranty.

Goodluck,

Our game appears to have a scratch on it and won'at work


Hi there,

I had the exact same problem with my copy of Call of Duty : black ops, it however it wouldn't load certain maps. There are two basic solutions to this problem.

Many Tech / Game stores now offer a service referred to as resurfacing disks, basically as the name suggests it makes the surface of your game disk just like new again and is relatively cheaper than buying a new copy of the game (less than ten dollars).

Option two, which can be free (yay!) providing that you have a friend who has the same game, borrow the game off him and copy it to your hard drive, so that when you go to play the game ( you still need to insert the disk ) but your xbox reads all the game data from the hard drive on the xbox and not from your damaged disk.

"
  1. Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
  2. Scroll down to My Xbox
  3. Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
  4. This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
  5. On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance."

I put a game in the xbox 360 to let it load up at the main xbox 360 screen where you can mess with your profile and the game loaded up and when I clicked the game to load up so i could play it it said I...


Make sure the disk is clean.
Reinsert and try again.
If it does not try to update again and it tries play the game but does not work and it is not because it cannot read the disk then go to the settings, hard drive and go to "System Cache" and delete.
This will delete all temporary files. Which means all small updates for games will be deleted. I reccomend doing this as it may be an error due to the update being stopped halfway through therefore being unfinished. So the xbox may recognise that the update has been installed but because it is unfinished then it may not be able to start the game.

If this still does not work try disconnecting from the internet as it will not ask for an update and you will be able to play the game without it. If this does not work and the game does not play it may be a problem with the disk.
First I would suggest playing the disk in a friend's xbox. If it still doesn't work, take the disk back to the shop and get it replaced.

My force feedback is really weak on Forza 3(new batteries and plugged in). I bought it in 07 and it came with the game PGR3, it says the drivers are on the game disc so i loaded PGR3 again like i did in 07...


Try plugging it in without the batteries. Also I a part that Microsoft uses is plastic so it wears out after awhile. The force feedback on my xbox wheel is not as strong as it was when new.

How do i clean xbox 360 len?, xbox keeps saying my disk needs cleaning, the disk is spot-less, after 3/4 of an hour (appox), it loads the game. Thanks.


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

My xbox 360 only pays old games(like pgr3) and not new games(like need for speed shift)


The laser in your XBox 360 is probably going out. When lasers start to fail, the first discs that stop reading are newer, dual layer, discs. Single layer discs will still read. As the laser wears out, single layer DVDs will stop reading but CDs will continue to read. Eventually, everything will stop reading and the laser will die.

You can find lasers for the XBox 360 all over the internet. Installing them isn't easy though.

I cant play games


This message sometimes comes up if you have copied the game to the 360`s hard drive , the game will only be playable if it is in the DVD drive as the 360 needs to know if you still own that game . It will spin the drive to see if you still own it and then load it off the hard Drive .

Error disk reading Xbox 360


You can try a 3rd game and see if it loads and if so then there is a problem with PGR3 and not with game. Also clean with alcohol and try again
