    I have the exact same problem. If I hit the eject button several times it will eventually load the game. Anyone know why it is doing this?

My xbox 360 1st generation wont play games made sometime in the spring of last year to present . all they do is freeze up ,lose sound and get disk read errors. games have been returned many times thinking...


Buying a new console may never be a good solution. Sending it into Microsoft for repair is the smartest choice, unless you have the skills to open your Xbox 360 console, and repair the reader by yourself. Yes, your game reader sounds like the problem. You may look up videos on youtube on how to disassemble your Xbox 360 console. Don't get mad if you mess up on your first try, it takes some work.

Please contact me if you have any further questions, or problems.

My 360 will only read a disc once every 200 or so times. It's the same for games and DVD's. Is thios a failing motor and time for a warranty repair or does anyone know a quick fix


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Then you should have no problems/

360 cannot read Resident Evil 5 games...two different ones!


It's more than likely the DVD drive. Try a different game or 2 to be certain. If you are still getting that issue try running a CD based cleaner a few times. If that doesn't solve your issues contact Microsoft as a recently purchased console should be fully under warranty.

Player faild to load content


Hello,

Its possible that your Xbox360 is having a hard time reading your game disc. Try to clean your Xbox360's lens by using a CD lens cleaner. If you are still having problems after doing that, its possible that your game disc is already bad.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

X Box 360


This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!

Unplayable disc


Your system is fine, the disk is a different story. By moving your Xbox 360 the drive does some funky things. The disk probably has some deep grooves around the egde. In future, dont move the 360 or backup your xbox 360 games with http://www.everything4360.com Support Rich

Xbox 360 having problems reading game disks


Hi there. Well, you got it narrowed down pretty well. The DVD drive is probably failing, either the lens itself, or the sliding posts on it need some greasing (you don't wanna crack it open to grease it yourself if you don't wanna void warranty, tho), or the lens might be just dirty. Hard to tell without actually opening it up and doing a few tests tho. The only thing i could think you could try to clean the lens without opening the console, is to unplug the power cord when the tray is open, and to blow compressed air (canned, or compressor source) into the drive, trying to clean the lens. If it doesn't work, best bet is probably sending to MS still. I don't think you'll end up getting a worst condition console, from the few times i've had refurbs from them the 360's are still fine to this day. Now, on a side note, just remember to avoid overheating, never block the console's air flow (intake and exhaust), that's the 360 #1 killer still. Hope that helps, cheebster.
