Wont play xbox game disc

Make sure the disc is clean, if its clean, and works in another 360. Disassemble the 360, open the dvd drive up, shoot some canned air in there but NOT on the laser, clean the laser with some rubbing alchol of at least 91% and a q-tip then put it back together if this doesn't work you will need to buy a replacement laser off of ebay. And here is a link on how to disassemble the 360: Just make sure to stop when you've gotten to the part about the DVD drive, then disconnect the DVD drive, and take it apart. Best of luck.

My xbox 360 is reading all of my games as dvds, why?

It IS reading all your Games / DVDs? Well that's what it's supposed to to do. However, if it isn't reading any of them, then the laser that reads your discs inside of the 360 is either malfunctioning, or it needs to be cleaned. If it's malfunctioning, only Microsoft will be able to replace it. You can reach them here:
What you need to clean your laser lens is a Lens Cleaner for a CD Player. Make sure it's not the type for a DVD Player. The best place to find something like this is Wal-mart. It's basically a disc with brushes underneath it that you pop into your 360 and it cleans the Lens.

There are means of cleaning it without even having to leave the house, but it involves taking apart your entire 360 and most of the components inside of it. Grueling work and it voids the warranty of your 360.

If this solution doesn't resolve your problem, please post a response on this page and I will be happy to assist you further.

How can you clean the perfect circle scratch on an xbox 360 game????

There isn't really a way to clean it, but you could try either the toothpaste or brasso trick(google it). your best bet would be to buy a disk doctor or take it to gamestop and ask them to resurface it.

Disc Reader not reading disc

You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!

My xbox 360 won't read any disks at all, not games, not movies, not CD's; it just says reading then open tray

Best bet would be to clean the disc reader by either using a Ku-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol or by using a actual cleaning disk for a computer
