There are two things that could cause this problem if none of the games work, either the laser has died or the laser lense is dirty. First thing I would try is cleaning the lense. You can try the easy route first by using a can of air, ejecting the tray and blowing the air into the drive. The pressure is strong so you want to hold it at least 3 to 4" away from the opening.
If that doesn't work or only works temporarily you can take the system apart, take the disc drive out and open it. Then clean the laser with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Don't press hard on the lense though you may scratch it. The lense should be crystal clear when clean.
Last option is taking the laser out completely and replacing it. Costs around $10 for pretty much all of the different lasers they used in the systems.
For taking the system apart you can either watch a youtube video on it or I can walk you through it. You will need a 1.4mm flathead, T-8, and a T-10 torx bit.
Best of luck!

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Just changed the disc drive on my xbox 360 now it wont play games only dvd can anyone help thanks


the disc drive on the xbox 360 has a key that matches it to the motherboard. If the key isn't there, or is incorrect, the xbox won't read games. If you (hopefully) still have the original drive, you might be able to get someone to help you with jungleflasher to copy the key over. Good luck!

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

My disc reader won`t work


1. Make sure the disc is clean beforeinserting it into the drive. If possible, test on another Xbox 360 to ensurethat the problem is with the Xbox and not the game itself. If the problemappears to be with the game itself, you can install a working game onto yourHDD by borrowing it from a friend or renting it. With the game installed, Allthe Xbox will need to do is read the game, then play it from the HDD.

2. If the problem appears to be with the Xbox, and you have experience withelectronics repair, visit the link below for a tutorial on a method ofadjusting the laser. This often helps many people with the problem. * Thismethod will void your warranty *

3. If you're not willing to open the unit, contact Xbox Support at the linkbelow.
