    Can you play music CD's or DVD videos? If no disc's will read you Drive is bad, If your somewhat handy you can replace your self, there are videos on youtube to instruct and a NE drive can be bought on e-bay for about $40 You can replace just the laser but in my experiences its worth wile to replace the entire drive. The ribbon cables going to the laser often wear out.

This is caused by a weak/dead laser 90% of the time .
New lasers are 10.00- 20.00 and are not hard to install .
Find out what laser you have with a tutorial on youtube
just type " laser replacement for xbox 360" I buy my
lasers from richspsx online or ebay. .

Option two is to buy your make and model drive
average cost on ebay is 25.00 35.00 with shipping
Then remove the P.C. board from your old and install
it in the new one . This will eliminate the possibility
of something other then the laser failing.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

My xbox360 reads dvds but not games. when i put a game in, it goes to a white screen with the xbox logo


This error is caused by not having the original DVD drive in your 360. Only a professional can change your DVD drive successfully. You will need the original DVD drive to fix this problem. Without the original drive your Xbox won't be playing disc based games again. A skilled professional with the original DVD drive should be able to fix your problem.

Same problem


If you have a flashed Xbox 360 it could be that the new game has a protection called Wave3.

That protection makes the games to run as a DVD if the speed of the dvd is not 12X.

Because when you got a flashed DVD, your dvd doesn´t play games and dvds at 12X speed.

That makes that wave3 is feeling a higher or lower speed than it should be and blocking it and says Play DVD. Exactly the problem you got.

Startup screen goes black.


I would try having the firmware reloaded or updated. Sounds like a problem there. Try going to xbox.com and downloading the update for playing older xbox games. This also updates the firmware.

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.
