Well if your on live try formating the hard drive and clearing the cache
heres how
Clear hard drive cache
Turn on the Xbox 360 while holding A to remove old cache files from the hard drive. Note: Your saved games and media will stay intact, however downloaded game updates will be deleted. They can be restored by playing the game again while Xbox Live enabled.
Enter the "System" menu and select the "Memory" option. Highlight the hard drive, then press Y. The Device Options screen for the hard drive will appear, with "Rename" and "Format" options. Press X(2), LB(2), X(2) to clear the cache. Alternately, enter the "System" menu and select the "Memory" option. Press Y for device options, then press either LB, RB, X(2), LB(2), X(2) or X(2), LB, RB, X(2), LB, RB. You will get a message stating that the system is performing maintenance.

My xbox360 won't read disc's it just says open tray

I learned this from a Youtube video and this did the trick for me. Hopefully, it will solve it for your X-Box 360 too! 1. Put disc into X-Box 360. 2. Turn X-Box 360 off. 3. Open tray. 4. Take disc out. 5. Slam Tray 6. Turn off X-Box 360 (Immediately after slamming the tray shut) 7. Turn on X-Box 360 _______________________________________________________ Your dvd drive probably has a bad motor. There are three motors inthere. One moves the tray. One moves the laser and another spins theDVD. If the tray ejects than that motor is fine. If you hear the discspinning then that motor is fine. Take the top off the dvd drive andsee it the laser moves when you close the tray it should move slightlythe laser should bob up and down and light up if none of that happensyou have a bad laser drive motor or bad laser. The solution is to buy agood DVD drive the same as your make and change the pcb boards (thecircuit board in the DVD drive) make sure yor pcb stays with yourconsole as the motherboard and pcb are keyed together.

How do i fix my xbox 360 when it does not read games?

Hi Seth,

There could be a couple of causes, and there could be a couple of solutions. The solutions may not be too fun though.

First possible problem:

1. Your discs could be scratched. If that's the case, clean them off as best you can with a soft cloth and all that. If that's not the case......

2. It could be that your disc drive is messed up.

If 1. didn't solve your problem, than here are some possible solutions.

1. Your lens could be dirty, in which case you can try a lens cleaner (probably not the problem)

2. For many with this problem, formatting their hard drive (yes their hard drive, not disc tray) solves the problem. Unfortunately that's a major bummer because you'll lose everything on the drive.

3. If you're brave enough to go through the second one and it still doesn't solve it, you're going to have to send it in for repairs cause it looks like the disc tray is going kaput.

Best of luck man :)

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray

The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.

Hard drive won't read downloads

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, your whole problem is the fact you cant get it connected to the internet, ou have to be able to connect so the 360 can update the patches for the games because when microsoft repairs the xbox they erase all the updates you had. I hope this helps but it sounds to me like you need to plug the ethernet cable in and try to recover your gammer tag and account. Please let me know if you need anything further.

If you have a router, try to wire the connection, its faster than wireless in the first place and also errorless.
