    one thing it could be is that it isnt reading the disc correctly

    This error is actually caused by the sensors on the back of the drive overheating, so the good news in all of this is that your drive will not be faulty.

    However there are only a few ways that you can fix it, firstly you can send it in and they will fix it for you, although this will take about 4 weeks and for this error you will need to pay out $140 in a repair bill which can be off putting.

    The other way that you can fix it is by using a good Xbox 360 Repair guide that will show you how to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips and the back of the drive.

    I hope this helps you and if so please leave me a comment and rate so this can help others

My xbox 360 wont work because i had it 3 years now, i put a game in doesn't work... i need help people...?

If it no longer works because you had it for 3 years, then you know the solution: Never keep an Xbox for longer than 2.9999 years.
If there's a hard drive inside, this could be seized due to lack of use. Grab the Xbox on opposite corners, and as violently as you can, rotate the case back and forth in the plane that the hard drive is mounted in. This action may loosen the drive's platters. I'm just guessing. Do lights come on when plugged in or does it look dead?

Wont play xbox game disc

Make sure the disc is clean, if its clean, and works in another 360. Disassemble the 360, open the dvd drive up, shoot some canned air in there but NOT on the laser, clean the laser with some rubbing alchol of at least 91% and a q-tip then put it back together if this doesn't work you will need to buy a replacement laser off of ebay. And here is a link on how to disassemble the 360: Just make sure to stop when you've gotten to the part about the DVD drive, then disconnect the DVD drive, and take it apart. Best of luck.

My xbox 360 keeps freezing when i put in Mercenaries 2 at the start menu whenever im connected to xbox live

If its just this game that is doing it, then the disc may be dirty or scratched. Try cleaning it with a dry duster (wiping the disc from centre to edge). It that doesn't work, then have a good look at the disc for any scratches. If you do find any, then the disc is probably broken.

Why won't the xbox read any disk after installing the xbox live

This is a common problem with old xbox 360 consoles.If your console is still under warranty, try getting a replacement by visiting the support website at

If you are no longer covered by insurance you can do an old trick I used to do with my old xbox 360.
Open the disc tray and insert the disc, as soon as you insert the disc in the console, hit your xbox on the top surface a few times, around 3, by this I mean slap it. it might take a few tries but it worked me.

However, if you are having problems with a specific disc, you should try cleaning the disc with a clean cloth. If that doesn't work, you can borrow the same game from a friend or try to obtain a temporary copy. Download the game to your hard drive and insert the original game, it should work flawlessly.

Same problem

If you have a flashed Xbox 360 it could be that the new game has a protection called Wave3.

That protection makes the games to run as a DVD if the speed of the dvd is not 12X.

Because when you got a flashed DVD, your dvd doesn´t play games and dvds at 12X speed.

That makes that wave3 is feeling a higher or lower speed than it should be and blocking it and says Play DVD. Exactly the problem you got.
