@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

Disk Drive Problems


Your old xbox is not up to date, so it is reading it wrong. Just because the older they are if not updated on live it will read games and DVDs wrong.

Tthe problem is with the dvd drive in your 360. If your console is still under warranty, Microsoft will repair it for free.

If you console is not under warranty, you can login on www.xbox.com using the email account associated with your gamertag and open a support case to have your console fixed. Using this method, the repair cost will be $99.00

Or, you can call 1 800 4my xbox and speak with a customer support tech and have them open the support case for you. Using this method, the repair cost will $120.00
