Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
You,ll need to replace The DVD Rom Drive.
The Standard/Original Xbox. only has a single laser unit. which doubles up as a cd/dvd reader. if it,s not reading xbox games, but playing cds. the laser isn,t powering up enough to read the dvd format/games.
Eject the DVD Tray. If it,s perfectly arched shape in the centre. then it,s a thomson drive. if the arch is slightly rounder it,s philips dvd drive. if it has 2 holes left/right in the drive drawer, it,s a samsung. You should have a straight swap over with the drive, it,s only the hard-drive that is eeprom locked to the motherboard.
unlike the 360 which is eeprom locked to the dvd.
try a disk head cleaner first of all.
