You need to dismount the Xbox DVD playerto clean it's laser

If it's still doesn't work you will need to ajuste the laser pot.

My original xbox console can't recognize games, but my songs still can read..

Dirty disc, other region disc, not original game (copy) or just a bad dvd drive. The Thompson dvd drive on many of the original xboxes went bad pretty quickly. You can order a replacement dvd drive on ebay. The samsung replacement dvd drives are the best in my opinion.

Whenever I play a game on my xbox, when it starts it doesn't recognize (the xbox 360) that it is a game, instead it reads that its a DVD, a movie, but its not its a video game, so please help me...

This is similar to a problem I have, the best thing to do is to keep openening and closing the disc tray untilll it reads. Otherwise, clean the disc

Wht does it mean when you put a xbox 360 gme in the console and it says play dvd and sometimesa wont read the game discs

When it says play dvd, it just randomly doesn't recognize that it's a game. Press A and you'll enter the game.
When it doesn't recognize the disc all together, I'd suggest cleaning the disc with an anti-static cloth then putting the disc back in.

Xbox 360 recognizes games as dvds

The Thing the spins your discs is likely pretty much out of lubricant blame that on microsoft... it causes the disc not to spin correctly and it doesnt get the disc spinning fast enough. Only way to fix it is taking it apart and lubricating it you will have to search the internet for the tools and instructions on how to take it apart
