Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
HI, this is a very very common problem with all xbox 360's the problem you are having is as you all ready worked out not the games, the problem is with the laser it has started to stop reading the games due to it loosing its power, now if your xbox is less than 3 years old then you need to contact microsoft and they will then send you a refurbished working xbox 360, if how ever its over 3 years old then the only option you have is to get it repaired, now the problem with this is its not just a case of buying a new dvd drive and taking the old one out and putting the new in, the problem you have is that their are 3 different types of dvd drive you might have in your xbox but even when you find out which drive you have got then you also need to have special software to take the data off your old dvd drive and then put this data onto the new dvd drive, without doing this it wont recognise the new drive.
its not an easy job to do and if you have not done it before then its not something you should try doing, now some of the dvd drives can have the power to the laser adjusted but to do this you need to know what dvd drive you have got and you will also need special tools such as multi meter to read the readings for the laser as you adjust it, you need to look around for an xbox repair service near to you, i do alot of these but im in UK so probably no help to you in the respect,
some independent phone shops offer xbox repair service so have a look around and see what price you can get, the best option would be to have the dvd drive replaced as adjusting the laser may only work for a few days before it burns it out.
let me know if you need further assistance ok or if you have any questions
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Your laser is weak or one of the two
motor is weak. 80% of the time a new
20.00 laser installed will resolve the problem . Some times the best method
is to find out make and model drive you
have then buy one form ebay for 30.00-40.00 and remove the old Drives P.C. board and put it in the new drive . This
If you have any questions feel free to ask

Check to see if there are any scratches on the disc. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. With some scratched discs, the data cannot be read and the game console may not even recognize the discs at all, giving you error messages etc. Best remedy for starters, is to try clean the discs and make sure there are no smudges or dirt marks left on the play-side of the discs. If there are any scratches on the discs, they will need repairing.
Most Game Discs, DVD's and CD's can be fixed quite easily back to "As Good As New Condition". Some home remedies or cheap repair kits may help with some light marks or very light scratches on some discs, but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any discs with anything more than very light scratches.

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.
If you tried some home remedies and they have not worked, try sending the disc off for repair. Contact the site above for advice on repair and shipping.
Hope this Helps!!!
