If your Xbox 360 is doing this it is because of the heat betting to the chips on the motherboard all you need to do is use a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

I'm guessing your talking about DVDs and game disks, If your PS3 isn't reading PS3 games anymore but is reading DVDs then your laser could be dieing and you may need a replacement.

My xbox 360 reads dvds but not games


If oyu have had it for a long time or its old the laser on the DVD drives eventually burn out from too much use. The games require a more precise laser to read it while DVDs are easier to read.

If you have a original xbox game try that. If it works it must be the laser.

It will not read games just dvds


Hello,


This is caused by your drive and laser.

1 question... Have you recently tried to Mod this system?


moving on....

DVDs take less spin power to read, games take more. So, in result your system reads only DVDs because your Drive isn't spinning fast enough.

It would need to be repaired. HOWEVER,

If this system has been modded, it has potentially damaged your drive and system.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games but reads dvds


Your laser is bad in the drive. When it comes to reading games, DVd's, music cds, it requires a different strength from the laser in your dvd rom in order to read them. If it can't read all types then the laser is definitely bad and you can either replace just the laser or the whole drive.
