Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK DRIVE READ ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Assassin's Creed 2 won't load on Xbox 360


Sounds like your cd drive is not reading the discs properly. If that's not the problem, then you have a scratched disc on your hands.

Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your scratched/non-working game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

Resident Evil 5 for XBox 360 NOT WORKING!!!


Good afternoon!

With most mass production games, there is always a chance you will have a defective game. I would take it back to the store, explain the problem, and exchange it for a new one.

BTW: Game is pretty good.

Hope this helps!

All dvd drives in an xbox360 are married to the motherboard. The new dvd drive needs to be flashed with the bin from the old drive in order for it to play games. We can do this for you if your interested email us xbox360fixer@verizon.net

Xbox 360 thinks game is dvd


your laser is going out or something, or its dirty. mine was doing this to me. eventually it would not see the disc at all and kept saying open tray. i bought a philips laser lens cleaner for around 8 bucks and its helped me out so far. from what i've read though, this is only a temporary solution and will require service eventually.

XBOX 360 ASSESINS CREED UNREADABLE DISK


I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
