Ok, first make sure not to put any more disks into the console because it is ruining the disks. Call 1800-4MY-XBOX, and you will need them to repair your console.

Game wont read says put disc in xbox 360 but i am using xbox 360 also it says its a dvd not game just wont let me play no more

If you have recently tried to mod your Xbox 360 then you did not get the drive key installed correctly. Otherwise the laser lens is either dirty/ starting to weaken. You can either replace the laser lens in the disc drive, try to clean it, try the POT tweak or replace the whole disc drive. Keep in mind if you replace the disc drive you will need to swap the PCBs or the drive keys. Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 tray messed up

You need to either open the console or use a air duster. Make sure you do not ever use a dvd lens cleaner disc. They are too hard on the laser and can wind up scratching the laser lens. You can find a brand new laser on ebay for about $10 shipped. If you do not know how to do this you can always take the laser and console into a tv repair shop and they should install it for you for under $65. If you want detailed instructions on how to replace the laser or clean it, follow this link:

It sounds like your laser lens is REALLY dirty. Use a laser lens cleaner, which can be found at any store (CVS, Walgreens, etc). They don't cost very much either!

Good luck and take care,
