Hi there,

There are a couple of steps you can take when your 360 isn't reading your DVD-Rom.
First off, try another game, if it reads it then your 360 is working properly. Your game on the other hand may have scratched which need to be cleaned. If it's cracked, there's nothing you can do.

If it's not reading any other game disk, then you should try airing out the dust in your 360. If that doesn't work you can try cleaning the lends. Here's some information from eHow in regards to cleaning the lens. I like recommending eHow because it provides simple, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for situations which may seem difficult:

It's a loose cable. Strip down your xbox 360 until you can see your DVD drive. Then replug all cables. It should work again. Otherwise it may be the lens.

My Xbox 360 is not reading disks


If your Xbox 360 is not reading discs this is because the receptors on the back of the drive have overheated, you need to stop this.

You can do it yourself or send it in

Can not read anything in disk drive


Usually after having an Xbox 360 for a while, the "eye," or device that reads disks may ware down and break, or may just be dirty. This is the most common reason for the console to be unable to read any disks. I would contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX for support involving repairing the console, or another retailer to find a CD that could possible clean the eye.

Hi, I'm still unable to update the xbox 360


Hi,
your probably not doing anything Wrong.
did you boot the console then eject the draw, and put the update disk In ?
it should read the disk, then tell you it,s an update, and ask you if you want to update the console.
Make sure your hard-drives connected.
The only other thing i can suggest, is to make sure your 360 reads the disks or media your using.
if you try burning a music cd, and see if the 360 recognises it, you,ll know the media or Blank CD/DVD is good for the 360 to read. another method is to add a dummy file of about 80-100mb.
this ensures the 360 sees the disk.
try different media/disks and different methods.
if it still does,nt work for you. mail me your e-mail address and i,ll forward you 1 already made.

regards Mike @ compurepair.
