Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

SOURCE: i have a xbox 360 witha benq drive it won't read the games

This is a pretty common problem in the 360 and sometimes it will act a little crazy with errors like "please put into a 360 console", or it thinks games are dvds and just says "play dvd" after putting a game in. This is usually caused from the laser which is either dying out not getting enough power. You can either fix it yourself which will void the warranty, or send it in to get fixed which will cost around $100 for a new drive.

first open up the dvd drive and clean it good, including the laser. Then try the dvd drive POT Tweak
if you decide to get a new laser, then click here for instructions on how to install it properlly.

If you don't want to get a new laser or do the pot tweak, you can get a replacement drive on ebay or somewhere. It must match the key stored on the motherboard, so you would need to taked the pcb board out of the old drive and put it into the new one for the keys to match.

It only plays Normal Xbox games


The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC


Most of the time when your Xbox 360 says "Unplayable Disc" it's because the disc is unknown or it can read the label of the disc(the ring in the middle on the silver side). I cant provide anymore imformation due to your post. Be more specific.

"Unplayable Disc"


First of all clean the disc, use warm water and a soft rag. after cleaning the disk, very carefully take apart your XBOX and use the rag to wipe off the eye touch nothing else. Place the XBOX together the same way that you took it apart. Hope this helps!
