Wont read certain disks

I can play many of my games, but when I load Halo 3 or Call of duty, it says "reading" then says "open tray" I tried other Halo 3 games and it does the same thing. Can this be fixed by me, and why is it doing it to soem games and not all games?

My xbox 360 isnt reading my halo reach game


Does it show the disk when you load it. Like is it just saying tray open. What model 360 do you have. I know if you have the ones without a hard drive you cant play certain parts of the game. Like multiplayer. I think even the campaign, but I could be wrong. If your xbox is saying tray open when you load the game. Your probably getting hardware error. Happened to my old one. If you have other games try and load them. See if this is only happening with Halo Reach.

My xbox 360 wont read halo 3 but reads my other games?


Your disk may be damaged. If it has scratches on it that can cause major problems. But the worst problems are caused by fingerprints. Fingerprints prevent the laser from reading the data on the disk. If your disk has fingerprints, run it under the water faucett and, using a soft cloth (the kind you would clean eyeglasses with), wipe from the center to the outside of the disk, not in a circle. If the problem persists, the Halo 3 data on your hard drive may be corrupted. Delete the data and try starting the game then.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray


Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .
