Well you probably know what the problem is.
Your drive either has a weak laser , which is easy to
install yourself and cost around 20.00-30.00.

Or the spindle motor or worm gear motor is failing .
This will require you to buy a new drive and swap
the P.C. board for your old drive to the new one
The cost of a new/used drive is around 40.00 on
ebay . this is a sure fire way to fix your drive problem.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Tried to play new game, says not enough memory space. I deleted everything and still wont play, help!


You may have an old series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has either 256MB or 512MB of internal memory. You may also have a new series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has 4GB or data storage. For multi-disk games that install one or more disks, you need, at minimum, a 20GB hard drive installed in your console. You will need to invest in a hard drive for your Xbox 360.

The game starts but it cuts off and say wipe the disc and start the console over..The game disc is brand new but it wont start the game


Well it's a defiantly a hardware failure
90% of the time installing a new laser
will fix it . New laser are cheap 20.00
10% the one of the two motor will fail
so you'll have to buy a new drive and
swap the P.C. board form to old drive
to the new , both are relatively easy
procedures. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON REPAIR
GUIDES . all of the info you need is free on line.

Wont play on my xbox 360 new hour of victory game says wrong region wont play


This sadly means the game and Xbox 360 console aren't the same region. (Rather the game is region locked, meaning unless you have a Xbox 360 that plays those regions, the game is non-playable because the console can't read the disc.) There really isn't any solutions for this, other than take the game back to the store and ask for your money back because the region of the game doesn't play on your Xbox 360. Always make sure when buying Xbox 360 games that it's the right region code. (Or that it's a region free coded game) There are a few games like that out, one being Borderlands for example.

If it says PAL on the cover of the game for example, the game covers most of Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Western Europe. (List of common PAL regions can be found here.)
There are a few other region codes for games, so you better make sure you are buying the ones for your region.
Hope this was of some help.

New drive, still says "put in 360 console"


As much as I hate to say this, I think you broke something in your 360. The only solution I can think of is take it to Microsoft or buy a whole new 360.
