Needs a cleaning, or laser, or spindle adjustment. call your local independent game store to see if they can fix it. or call 1-800-4MY-XBOX they charge about 100 bucks to fix. Or I can fix it for 60. good luck

Alright all u have 2 do is take the game out of the console and use a disc cleaner or you can use alchoal then get a cutip and dip in the alchoal then gently clean the disc on both sides then gently dry with a soft cloth (not-useing paper towls) then put the game in the console and turn off and back on then it should work (note that you may have to use this pattern more than once for it to work)

I can no longer play dvd movies or play dvd games on my xbox. but it will play music cd,s.

This is probably due to the DVD laser diode being faulty. The CD laser diode is a separate diode (within the same unit). If this is the case then you need a replacement laser unit.

The xbox 360 will not play a what can you do about it.

if the system turns on but will not read a game try a dvd movie or music cd. If dvd movies dont' play and the music cd does then your laser is out of calibration. The process to calibrate it is difficult and requires more technical knowledge. It is best to take it to a service center or have someone replace the DVDROM which coudl be cheaper than paying to clean and calibrate the laser.

Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?

This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games

The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games
