My xbox 360 keeps saying "please insert an xbox 360 game" how do I sort it out?

My xbox 360 has started getting worse and worse with this issue, as I used to think the discs were damaged, but I fail to see any scratches etc and it now seems it's starting to say it more and more with brand new games too?

The warranty has run out but I was thinking of calling MS and stating it's the 3 red lights issue (which it had as a one off ages ago) but I know they're slow with the replacement and don't know if they'd check it out.

Is there anything I can do to resolve the issue asap?

Sounds like the laser has gone, not too expensive to fix, a mate was gonna charge my cousin £10 to buy an fix a new 1.

Last time i tried playing 360 games in my PS3 it didn't work so i think that option may be a waste of time. :-D

Works when you update your firmware to 2.50 :w00t:

Hmm, I don't know.........it'll most likely get knocked over like that.

It's weird though cos I'll tried to play Pes 2009 (360 version before anyone says anything :p) with my friend and it takes several attempts to work.......why does it do this?

as said above, it seems the laser has gone, im sure some kind folk who know what they doing will put another in for you or search the deals, dealextreme were doing a replacement drive for £25 but its a pain to swap drives, again some kind soul may do it for ya

Same happened to my last one dont just leave it because it will get worse and worse until it wont play any games at all.Definately the laser though!

this happened to my console which i'd had for 2 years, Microsoft fixed it for free, give them a call for a quote before you do anything that may void any warranty you have left.
