Needs a cleaning, or laser, or spindle adjustment. call your local independent game store to see if they can fix it. or call 1-800-4MY-XBOX they charge about 100 bucks to fix. Or I can fix it for 60. good luck

Alright all u have 2 do is take the game out of the console and use a disc cleaner or you can use alchoal then get a cutip and dip in the alchoal then gently clean the disc on both sides then gently dry with a soft cloth (not-useing paper towls) then put the game in the console and turn off and back on then it should work (note that you may have to use this pattern more than once for it to work)

My xbox work read copy games or originals


Did you try to flash the X-BOX drive with the j-tag exploit, if yes then it must have not run successfully , if you have not dont do it as it will just ruin your console if you donot know what you are doing. Try using a Cd-Lens cleaner as your DVD-Lens might be dirty and could be a cause. Does the disk spin when it is inserted into the drive ?

Clear your system cacheIf your Xbox 360 console can't play multiple game discs, try clearing your system cache. Here's how:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Memory.
  3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
  4. Select Clear System Cache.

    Collapse this imageExpand this imagesyssettings_deviceopt_clearsyscache.jpg

    Note If Clear System Cache is not available, follow the steps in Clearing the System Cache (http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/hardware/clear-system-cache.aspx) .
  5. Try to play a game disc.

Disconnect memory units or USB flash drives
  1. Turn off your console.
  2. Unplug any memory units or USB flash drives attached to your console.
  3. Turn on your console.
  4. Try playing a game.
If all these fail try this

Tip

When you try to play a DVD game on Xbox 360 it tries to play as a movie?


c on your Xbox 360 console, you may receive an error message. This article presents step-by-step guidance to help you determine whether your disc is playable.
SYMPTOMS When you try to play a disc, you may receive the following error message: Can’t read this DVD.
CAUSE The DVD or game disc may be dirty or damaged. Because the console cannot read the disc well, it may even mistake a game disc for a DVD and report this error. If this problem occurs with multiple discs, even clean and undamaged discs, there may be a problem with your Xbox 360 console.
Note If you receive a different error message, such as one of the following messages, the problem is a different problem:
Error message 1 Can't play DVD. Wrong region code. Error message 2 Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD. If you receive one of these error messages, see the corresponding Knowledge Base article: 907620 While attempting to play a standard DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can't play DVD. Wrong region code" 908645 While attempting to play a DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD"
THINGS TO TRY Here are some things that you can do to try to fix the problem or to determine what caused it.
Determine whether the disc is dirty or damaged Discs that are smudged, scratched, or otherwise damaged cannot be read by the Xbox 360 console. You will want to examine the disc to see whether it has smudges, scratches, or other damage. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Examine the disc for dirt or damage: a. Pick up the disc by its edges. Do not touch the top or bottom surface. b. Examine the shiny side of the disc to make sure that the disc is clean and has no damage.
NoteScratches that follow the curve of the disc are very damaging and prevent a disc from being read. If your disc has even one of these kinds of scratches, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 2. If the disc is dirty, clean the disc by hand: • Use a soft, clean, dry, chemical-free cloth to clean the disc. • Lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 3. After you clean the disc, try to load it in the Xbox 360 console. If the disc still will not load or you receive the same error message, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 4. If the disc is damaged, do one of the following: • Because DVD discs are not game discs and the disc was damaged because of misuse of some type, such as not storing the disc in its case, the only thing that you can do is buy a new one. • If you feel that the disc was damaged by the Xbox 360 console in some way, please contact Xbox Customer Support. To do this, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support/contact

Xbox 360 live; trying to play Mercenaries 2 - won't connect to EA


Problem seems to be the XBOX Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Run the game and play it once for about 30 mintues, then try again with the HDD inserted. It should now work.

The problem seems to be a conflict with the HDD or with the EA servers, as the XBOX Live account will try to connect to the now dead EA servers for this 2008 title.

If all else fails, you will need a portable memory card, not the HDD to play this game. It's okay if this is the case. Create an offline profile. The game no longer connects to the EA servers anyhow.

Wont play on my xbox 360 new hour of victory game says wrong region wont play


This sadly means the game and Xbox 360 console aren't the same region. (Rather the game is region locked, meaning unless you have a Xbox 360 that plays those regions, the game is non-playable because the console can't read the disc.) There really isn't any solutions for this, other than take the game back to the store and ask for your money back because the region of the game doesn't play on your Xbox 360. Always make sure when buying Xbox 360 games that it's the right region code. (Or that it's a region free coded game) There are a few games like that out, one being Borderlands for example.

If it says PAL on the cover of the game for example, the game covers most of Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Western Europe. (List of common PAL regions can be found here.)
There are a few other region codes for games, so you better make sure you are buying the ones for your region.
Hope this was of some help.

Resident Evil 5 for XBox 360 NOT WORKING!!!


Good afternoon!

With most mass production games, there is always a chance you will have a defective game. I would take it back to the store, explain the problem, and exchange it for a new one.

BTW: Game is pretty good.

Hope this helps!

Console sticking when loading


Hello.

The reason for this issue might be that there are some corrupt files on the harddisk/memory unit that the game has stored on them, try to load the game without having the harddrive/ memory unit attached.
If this works you will have to perform maintenance on the harddrive/memory unit, you can do that in the system tab on the Dashboard.

Another reason might be that your consoles DVD-drive laser is getting weak/ was defective from the beginning since the console is quite new, this is a well-known problem.

If it is really only this single game that the console doesnt read you can rule that out but if your DVD-Drive should be defective it will have to be repaired.
Just call Xbox support they will replace the DVD-Drive with a new one as it is still covered by the warranty.

Kind Regards,
