The laser is to weak to read at a high rate ,required
by game data . The remedy is to either to replace
the laser yourself (Not that hard to do) for about
20.00-30.00 .Or have a shop swap it out for 80.00
or so.

That will fix the problem.

My xbox 360 reads my xbox games as dvds. i can play dvds in it, but every time i put in a game the dvd play options pop up instead of game settings. I was wondering if there was a simple setting solution...


This is an uncommon problem with Xbox 360's, but I have heard of it before. I know of a few possible fixes:
  1. Eject the game you're trying to play so your drive is empty.
  2. Turn on your console.
  3. Insert the disc and see what happens.
Xbox 360's do not have the greatest DVD drives on the planet, no doubt. Another thing you could do is to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet and be sure you have the latest firmware update. This might remedy the problem. As soon as your 360 is connected, it will automatically detect if an update is needed and it will tell you it wants to download it without you having to do anything.
If neither of these work, chances are you'll need to contact Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX for technical support. If you're lucky, you're still under warranty.

DVD


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

The DVD issue normally happens as you will find that it can still read DVD's!

You will need to stop the heat to read games.
