My xbox did same, Try cleaning the disk first, I know this is obvious but eliminate this then clean the laser , you can buy cleaner discs cheaply. if still faulty then i would change the disk drive. ( get one on ebay) . But the disk drive is keyed to the motherboard so you will need to swap the circuitboard over from your dvd player to the new one. I did this with mine with great results. You can get info on ebay how to get into your xbox .

Hi there my xbox 360 will play dvds/cds but will not play games it just says play dvd when a game disc is inserted in the console can you please help me thanks mr shane arnell


Sounds like the Xbox 360's disk drive is starting to fail. Knocking on the top of the Xbox (when its on its side) while loading a game can sometimes get it to work, but its better to have your Xbox repaired or replace.

This is a problem occurring in all the xbox 360 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc,.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur xbox lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

My xbox will play cds and dvds but wount load games only just started doin it was playin it then all a suddurn it came up with a white screen sayin insert disc into an xbox 360 console


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

CHECK THE READ SIDE OF THE DISC FOR WAVY RAINBOWS. IF YOU HAVE NO DIFFACULTIES ON ANY OTHER GAME THAN ITS NOT THE CONSOLE, BUT THIS IS A SIMPTUME OF THE CONSOLE BREAKING DOWN. IT WILL TAKE WEEKS TO KNOW IF IT IS THE CONSOLE. IT WILL FINALLY FAIL TO READ ANYTHING. SEE WHAT XBOX.COM/SUPPORT SAYS.

Ok I had the same problem try this if this doesn't solve your problem call Microsoft.

First, Unplug everything including harddrive.

Next, Wait thirty seconds.

Then, Plug everything even harddrive.

Finally, Try it out see if it works. If it doesn't call Microsoft.
