    Xbox 360 disc read problem

    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

    Have you tried a laser cleaner?

    it only happens to me when playing fifa 09 but i think its because the disc is scratched!!!!

    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!

    I'll buy it off ya

    A tip is to say it has 3rrod and its fixed for free

    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

    is your drive a hitachi?

    Sheesh just realised when the OP was started
