If it does this to all of your games your xbox is Defected and you will have to take it back or fix it. If it is only one disc then take that disc back and they should switch it.

SOURCE: the xbox leeps saying play dvd when i put a game

this could mean your laser is on its way out, but it could also mean it
needs cleaning. the best way to clean is to strip the machine down. strip
the dvd drive down and get a cotton earbud.
spit on the earbud and very gently wipe the laser eye clockwise but dont
press on too hard, very gently.

also get a clean paintbrush and give the drive casings a good clean.

this might help. there is also something else you can try and thats
something called asjusting the 'pots', this is a bit complicated for
anyone not used to the process but i do have a guide if you want to have
a go yourself. what this does is adjust the laser power so its a full
again just like it was when you first bought it. (thats the easy
explanation).

regards

SOURCE: my xbox 360 keep sayin play dvd

the x clamp fix is for heat issues...this is a dvd drive issue...you may need to replace your dvd drive...but you cant just swap them out...you have to transfer your original PCB board from your broken drive to the new drive or it WILL NOT WORK....the dvd drive and motherboard are paired by a key...the keys for both have to be the same...you need to find out which drive you have...the BenQ is a pain unless you know how to flash the drive to get the key and transfer it to the new one...otherwise it means a soldering iron and some tiny little wires and some patience...there are tutorials and changing dvd drives...just google it

When we put in a game for our 360 system it says it's playing a dvd we can't get the game to work. how do i fix it so it says play game amd not play dvd? (it only does this with 1 game. the rest work fine


Ok if your for certain thats the original dvd drive and the other games work then its too many scratches on the disc or your laser lens needs wiped off with qtip and rubbing alcohol.


If you get an xbox thats say play dvd all the time on every game and it says to play this disc stick in a xbox 360 console then its the wrong dvd drive for that motherboard and you wont get the key (on a chip in the motherboard on the cd drive) unless you have the original dvd drive taken out of your xbox. Then you can just switch that little motherboard on the bottom of the dvd drives and it will read games. This is for those who will look at this with a xbox off ebay that they cant figure out how to fix. Its just an expensive dvd player.

Disk unreadable for Madden 10 everything i go online to play in the middle of the game it will come up and the game is brand new no scratches


if the xbox can read other games perfectly fine i would say that it might be a defect with you copy of the game. if other games have the same problem it means that the lens on your xbox is dirty or scratched. if dirty you could use a lens cleaner, but if its scratched you would need a new DVD drive put into the xbox which would have to be done through microsoft
