Hi,

I have a 360 that reads game discs as DVDs, then when they load it says to play the disc in a 360. It will ocassionally load the game.

Anyone else got/had this problem? Would replacing the laser/drive fix this problem?

Cheers

Not yet... I've read you've got to be careful with laser cleaner and the 360 drive?

When ours starts playing up that's all I use... It's basically a cd/dvd with a little brush on to clean the lens. :)

It still needs to read the disc to play off the HDD.

MS want nearly £70 to fix the 360!

Might be for sale if I can't fix it.

How easy is it to RROD it? I guess I could wrap a towel round it and let it melt away??? haha

but copying disc is different it will copy it raw to hdd then it will only read the disc id to confirm it's original .. dont knock it untill youve tried it ..know a few ppl that have done that ..until they can afford repair
