Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
OK when i insert any of my 360 games, it reads and comes up with a message that reads "please insert disc into a xbox 360" so i try to cut it of and it goes off but it continues to hum loudly like it is still running...
Your laser/drive have gone bad. I would suggest contacting your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. If not then you would have to buy the drive/laser and install yourself, that or send it in to the dreaded Microsoft.

I have the same problem with the xbox 360 telling me to insert the game in the console. It scratched two brand new games. They are scratched so badly, I don't think they are repairable. Does any one have any suggestions besides sending it in for repairs. It has less then two hours of play on it.

I have the same issue with my 360,won't read 360 games but reads everything else. I already sent it in for this problem before and it was fine for awhile, but it's doing same thing again. only solution is to send it back for repair or have hard drive replaced (which will void warranty)

I am on the phone with support as i type this. I had the same problem where it would play the games if i worked at it. but it got worse and now nothing works on it. It is an issue that needs to be sent in when it gets to the point that mine is at. You might be ok messing with it in frustration. i would check to see if it is under warrenty. 360 support number: 800-469-9269

Do you have one of those play and charge cords plugged into one of your controllers while you are playing for an extended period of time? I ran into the same problem with my 360 continuing to run after I turned it off. If you unplug that cord from your controller the 360 will power down. It works for me. I do not however know the answer to the unreadable disc problem. My 360 just developed the same issue...Mine will read dvds and it even played my orginal xbox version of Halo, but doesn't read any of my 360 games including my brand new games that worked just prior to this problem arising. I have been looking around in message boards for a solution so I don't have to send my xbox 360 in for repairs. So far, nothing.
