I bought a used xbox and a brand new COD4, but when I tried to play it the console didn't recognize it as a video game. When it finally did it would start loading for about three seconds and then the screen would get all distorted and that was the end of that. I was very frustrated but then a friend gave me his used Halo 3 game, and it worked fine. I was convinced that Best Buy had sold me a faulty COD4 so i excahnged it for a new one. That one also did not work. Angry and confused I then exchanged the recently exchanged COD4 for NCAA2008. This also did not work. I called the xbox support center and had a 30 minute conversationg, but the guy didn't have a solution. Now my brother came home from collge and has the new GTA game and that also doesn't work. So it appears that only Halo 3 works and that has some occassional minor glitches. How do I fix this? Where can I send it in to get it fixed?

Re: Xbox not playing games
I would have sent it to microsoft for repair. (Usually when they dont know a simple solution, as with your situation, They will send you a new console.) It will be worth the 120 bucks. and you will get a 1 year warranty.

You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game
no if every other game works fine then it may be the game software your trying to setup take it back to where you bought and trade it for a new one if that doesnt fix it then thats a new for me i have never heard of cod4 or cod 5 what is that let me know i can buy it maybe see if i could do it and then could tell you more easier what to do send me a message at my email account instaed of hear at firstname.lastname@example.org
Right, lay your Xbox360 down dont keep it upright, try installing COD4 to your hard drive then once installed go into you game library and click on cod4 and click play from hard drive ( and if you dont know how to install games to the hard drive make sure your xbox isnt on automatic start when a disc is inserted and put the disc in and when it says play cod4 press Y and then click install to hard drive) hope this helped....
how many times have you tried to play the disc? the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.
if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.
