Xbox360:play dvd or open tray instead of playing the game


This sounds like your lenses is getting dusty. Try buying a lenses cleaning disk and see if that helps. They are usually at local stores for only $10-$15. Here's a few examples.

If it stops working all together, and the lenses cleaning disk doesn't help, then you either have to send it to Microsoft to get it repaired, or get the lenses itself replaced by doing it yourself or a third part company.
Hope this helps!

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything


The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

360 concel will turn on , but it will not run, NO lights on Rol


It could be that the drive chip that controls the dvd drive lost its programing and need to be reflashed. I dont know how to do that but maybe google will help with that.

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

X box games not playing in the first try


Hit it!? What? Well I'm not surprised it's not working, hitting it is probably the single worst thing you can do to the console

Will noy read games


I have had a similar problem. I insert a game and it sais to insert it into a xbox 360 console.

This usually happens after I have been playing a dvd in the console.

Restarting console with game in it has been fixing issue.
