It's Not The dvd drive key otherwise you'd get the three red light lights. It's most probably a bad firmware flash try and reflash it to the original firmware with the same dvd drive key and see if that works.

My xbox is having troubles reading discs. It will sometime read a game as a dvd or even a cd, but wont go farther than a set screen. I have no red rings and have cleared my cache in memory settings. Dont...


You have a dirty laser or bad laser easy way to tell is to take your 360 apart and take the disc drive apart with the disc drive apart hook it back up to the 360 make sure to put the bottom shell back on the disc drive so you dont ground it out on the console. Look at your laser while it tries to read games. IF it produces a red beam try wiping it off with a qtip and rubbing alchol if that doesnt work you need a new laser which cost less then $10 on ebay. Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 keeps saying open tray instead of playing my disk


This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be careful when
buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage your machine or
at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

its very possible it could also be your logic board which is a controller that controlls your dvd drive and laser etc. if this is faulty (and im betting its a samsung) then you might have to replace. you can pick these up for swap with the one on your drive for around £10 and can be effective but i would also checj the drive belt and make sure that is tight and working ok and tha laser too.

if your 360 reads dvd's but not games it may be repairable but if it wont read anything then your better off replacing the laser. strip down the console and strip the dvd drive, take out the laser and look underneath it, it will have a code such as HD57 or something else, note that down. Visit ebay and search for the laser with the same code, buy it, fit it in and make sure you de-solder the static blob of solder before using it (search the net about this or ask the seller) and then try your machine again :)

Xbox 360 arcade pal game read error


You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

prolly the laser you can buy one on ebay for 15-20$ or buy a new dvd drive for 50$ if you replace the laser you will need to solder for the dvd drive all you will have to do is open the case and pull out the broken one and put in the new one

CHANGING DISC READER XBOX 360


You need one of the original xbox DVD drives. Any will work, but they need to be flashed with a key specific to your console. Just swapping it out will not fix the problem.

Xbox360 that doesn't know it is one


I had the same problem,If it is under warranty send it in ,,, if not then you are going to open it up,, plenty of instruction on how to do this online (google it). see what type of dvd drive you have and then go on ebay and purchase an identical replacment drive. once you recieve it open up YOUR ORIGINAL DVD DRIVE and unplug the green motherboard looking thing on top(Big ONE) there should be four little tabs on this. put it to the side . now open up the new dvd drive and repeat but make sure you dont get these cards switched up.put the old key in the new dvd drive , plug in all 4 tabs,bottom one first. put back together and install back into xbox360. put xbox 360 back together put in disk and enjoy
