I hope you mean you fitted a new DVD drive into your console. All games are in DVD format and if the replacement drive can not read and detect dual layer DVD's then they will not be able to see any of the games you put in.

Your Xbox 360 lens are most likely dirty. And your 360 probably has something like dust stopping it from scanning your games. I suggest blowing into your DVD drive carefully and gently. If it still doesn't work I recommend sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for a new one if your under warranty. If you don't have a warranty you could clean you lens by your self. But opening your 360 to clean the lens could make it worse so do it at your own risk.

Error msg: to play this disc put in xbox 360


Hi,

the Laser In The DVD Drives Failed.
Try a CD/DVD to see if it will read A single Layer DVD, Rather than the 360 Dual-Layer Disk.

You might try a laser head cleaning CD Disk.

Or requires drive replaced et,c. ** This is not swappable And should Be caried out by """ An Xbox 360 Drive Replacement Specialist, As the dvd drives logic board is paired to the Motherboard, And therefore have to be re-matched.

Play's cd and dvd but no games


It sounds like you replaced the DVD Drive... Xbox 360 DVD drives are "married" to the original xbox they were in with a specific key that needs to be extracted and reinjected into the target drive. This needs to be done by someone qualified to do so.

My xbox 360 says put game in xbox 360


your dvd drive is faulty this is either the laser or the complete drive you will have to open your 360 to find the make and model of your dvd and either replace the laser (available from ebay) or the whole dvd drive but the curcuit board on the dvd drive is coded to the xbox it is fitted to you will have to obtain a dvd drive the same make and model as the faulty one and swap circuit boards for it to work.

Xbox360 that doesn't know it is one


I had the same problem,If it is under warranty send it in ,,, if not then you are going to open it up,, plenty of instruction on how to do this online (google it). see what type of dvd drive you have and then go on ebay and purchase an identical replacment drive. once you recieve it open up YOUR ORIGINAL DVD DRIVE and unplug the green motherboard looking thing on top(Big ONE) there should be four little tabs on this. put it to the side . now open up the new dvd drive and repeat but make sure you dont get these cards switched up.put the old key in the new dvd drive , plug in all 4 tabs,bottom one first. put back together and install back into xbox360. put xbox 360 back together put in disk and enjoy

you flushed it wrong, they told that if you replace your dvd drive without or wrong flush the system, the system will no longer accept that dvd drive. Unfortunately I dont know how to flush the xbox. You need to look for website that teach or know how to flush the xbox before you connect your new dvd drive.
