Does it give you any error message at all when you try an xbox game? Does it do it with all games? Have you modded your xbox at all. Are you using a genuine xbox game and not a bootleg. If you have not modded your xbox and are playing a genuine xbox game and it will not play the error is probably with the laser or the game emulator. My guess would be a bad laser unit. Good news is it is not an expensive fix to replace the laser unit, they only run about 15 dollars. The semi-bad news it is requires cracking your case to replace. It you are not comfortable with it I would take it to a game store (GameStop for example) and they can replace it for around 20.00 (I would not pay more than 30.00 because it is about a 15 minute job). If you are comfortable cracking the case do a little googling and you can find numerous website that can give you step by step directions on changing the laser.

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

Put in a game and it says reading dvd and will not play but it will play a dvd if you put one in


Has this happened to all of your dvd games? Make sure your dvd game is genuine and not pirated copy as the Xbox is sensitive to those kind of cds.

I put a new drive in my xbox 360 and it wont play games


every DVD drive is "married" to the motherboard. They both have a special key that keeps them together. Without that key the motherboard will not accept the DVD drive and it won't be able to play games ever again. You can extract the key from you old DVD drive and "spoof" it to the new one. That's the only way it'll work.

My xbox 360 drive wont read games it will only dvds and cds


Your laser either needs to be cleaned or is going bad. I have seen this many times before. Try taking the drive apart and cleaning the laser aperture with 91% alcohol and a cotton swab (carefully). If that doesn't work then you need to replace the laser (or get a new drive).

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.
