Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

I get the same error

I get the same crappy "please insert disc into a xbox 360 console" and i have seen the play dvd on the dashboard when i insert a game.... your answer was "The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?" is there any way to fix this or is there any way to get it to recognize the decoder software?????
