Question about The Video Game Consoles & Games
Posted on Mar 26, 2020
SOURCE: Xbox 360 Disk Failure
dependant on how old the console is, the amount of hours played, and wether it,s in a dusty or smokey enviroment, can all be known factors of laser wear or dirty laser head.
if you eject the dvd drawer, and blow into the top of the cd/dvd draw you may move or dislodge any dust. secondly i,d try a laser head cleaning disk. these are the options without actually dismantling the console ( which will void any warranty ) failing this you could remove the dvd drive, and clean the laser head with a cotton bud/Swab moistened not soaked with lighter fluid or isopropyl alcohol.
if none of this works out, you can assume the dvds laser or drive mechanism is faulty or worn..
hope this helps you to get up and running again.

If you have the original X box CD's it will work fine expect when you have issues with region code.PAL NTSC are the two format a game can work with.so if you have NTSC formated game TRY a PAL version.it may work.
else clean your lens and try inserting a new CD of that GAME.

i dont know if you have a memory pack or if your just using the internal memory of the 360. but if you dont have a memory pack attached to the side then alot of times the original xbox games wont work. If you have any errors codes that could be helpful as well.
