Found 5th Aug 2008
For about 3 months now, Ive had to restart my Xbox numerous amount of times because the ROM Drive would only play DVD's... So whenever I put in a game disc, It comes up with a white screen with "Please Instert this game into an Xbox 360 Console" in about 10 languages...

To get the Xbox to start, I have to either pull the lower out of the console and wait a few minutes or take the disc out and give the Xbox a good old whack...

Any help would be appreciated...

Apparently, Microsoft will only fix it if its a RROD problem, which at the moment, it isn't...

I'm trying to avoid it because it works, it just takes my fist to make it work, but if it RROD's, i wont be too bothered... apart from it will take about a month for them to fix it and send it back... WHAT WILL I DO FOR A MONTH BEFORE I START WORK?!?!:?

Mine had a problem where the DVD drive was broken, and wouldnt read disks properly. Irang the woman and cus it was out of warranty she said she couldnt take it back.

I waited a week, rang again and said it developed the RROD (Which it hadnt) and they sent me the details to get it repaired. Got it back 2 weeks later, with a letter to say the motherboard and DVD drive has been replaced. Great success!

Long story short. Lie. Tell them its a RROD and when they do the diagnostic they'll have to replace the drive as well if its actually broke :thumbsup:
