I would assume this is what you're talking about. It's easier to buy a new laser off ebay though.

I cannot play most of the games due to region code....I have an Xbox 360 pal as well as Xbox 360 ntsc console....the latter has burnt up but its DVD ROM is alright....if i change the DVD ROM of pal to ntsc...


Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

My 360 is not reading the disk what can i do?


Hi there,

There are a couple of steps you can take when your 360 isn't reading your DVD-Rom.
First off, try another game, if it reads it then your 360 is working properly. Your game on the other hand may have scratched which need to be cleaned. If it's cracked, there's nothing you can do.

If it's not reading any other game disk, then you should try airing out the dust in your 360. If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the lends. Here's some information from eHow in regards to cleaning the lens. I like recommending eHow because it provides simple, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for situations which may seem difficult:

My xbox 360 says play dvd but i put in halo 3 which is a video game


Is your DVD-ROM the original one that was in it when it was purchased? If not, then there's your problem. If you replace it with another ROM from a different 360, or with an after-market 360 ROM, then it will only play movies and not the games. It requires you to hack your 360 to get the new ROM to work properly, and that's alot of stuff to do. I think that according to the rules of this website I'm not allowed to post info about how to hack & crack things. If your DVD-ROM is the original one, then maybe your need to update your firmware and even run a cleaning disc in your 360 to get it to work right. If that doesn't work, then you have the option of replacing your ROM yourself and finding the hacks to make it work right, or you can pay Microsoft about $100 to fix it for you.

Open tray error and thensome.


Unreadable disc errors or open tray errors are commonly fixed by pot calibration or laser assembly replacement. Pot calibration is the cheaper of the two, and if it fails and burns out the laser, well, replacing the laser would be the next step anyway.

You shouldn't calibrate the pot without an ohms reader simply because you can burn out the laser, but you CAN wing it. I'd advise doing some searching on DVD Drive pot calibration for the Xbox 360, simply because I don't know which drive you have so I can't help identify anything for you.

I will say you have to disassemble it down until you see the motherboard, take out the DVD drive, open it up, and then calibrate the pot with a very small screwdriver. The location of the pot depends on your drive. If this fails, then buy a new laser assembly and replace it in the drive.

p.s. pot calibration is fancy terminology. There are basically 2 "screws" inside the drive, 1 pot is the DVD/games, and the other is CD. You'll want to very slightly tweak the DVD/games pot until it works, testing with each tweak. You barely need to adjust this "screw" for a significant change to happen. Also, always test with a DVD and then a game. It will read a DVD before a game.

My xbox 360 wont play my games


if it tells you the disc is unreadable then the laser maybe bad or dirty.
try a cd lens cleaner and see if it solves the problem. if it doesn't then your dvd rom will need to be replaced

Xbox 360


hello

First point is you need to extract the firmware from the old original (very important) drive which involves opening up the xbox 360. there are many guides online which show how to do this. Try www.360mods.com and select tutorials where there are nice video tutorials which you can pause and do at your own pace on almost anything xbox 360 related. To explain this in full detail here would take an eternity and i find that video tutorials work best. I know that I'm sending you to another site but trust me that site is a goldmine of information and well put together too.

Should mention that within thisa firmware lies the dvd key if you follow the video tutorials and successfully extract the dvd key then i suggest you make many copies of this key called (orig.bin) if you lose it then your xbox 360 £200 odd pound machine becomes a very expensive dvd player.
