Try and open the dvd drive and clean the laser and the cd spinning motor with qtips and rubbing alcohol and see if that works. that is the most probable cause.

How to play xbox games with my xbox36


Only certain original xbox games are backwards compatible on the Xbox360. To see a list of which games those are you can go to www.xbox.com and search for games that are backward compatible for the 360. You may have to download something onto your xbox360 to play the old games.

My xbox 360 won't let me play xbox games on it


Not all original Xbox Games can be played in the Xbox 360 console, click here for the list of compatible Xbox games. If your game is on the list, here is how to do it:

- pop the game disc in the tray
- join Xbox Live and start the game
- the system will automatically install the backwards compatibility feature to your Xbox 360

I these steps won't work then your game is not supported by the backwards compatibility feature. Hope this helps.

Plays dvd's but not games


Hi,
Dependant on the age of the xbox.
Heres a couple of things to try.
1:) try a music CD.
2:) Try a laser head cleaner. ( usually the CD type ) some cleaner disks have a few small brushes on that wipe over the laser head. ** there are several causes for the 360 not reading Game-Disks**
3:) if you have the backwards compatable xex file from microsofts web-site. ( enabling you to play an official XBOX1 Or original xbox game. Try 1 of these, if the standard xbox game works, then the problem may be with the laser unit itself.
i.e standard xbox games are single layer, 360 games are dual layer. when reading a dual-layer disk the laser power output is increased, by the reader.

If you need any more help, regarding this.

feel free to mail me.

Mike @ compurepair.

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
