Back in December, my motor died on my 360, and I had it replaced. But now, my xbox is being very picky on the discs it reads. It seems to not want to read anything newer than Halo Wars (That's the most recent game I have that still works). I dunno if it's a coincidence or what, but it's kind of irritating when there about to be all of these awesome games coming out, and my disc drive is being queer.

I'm searching for some way to fix it without having to have it repaired, as I'm lacking funds to do so at the moment.

So, pit, can you help me fix my xbox 360?

send it back for repair.

It's covered for three years after you repair it once. happened to me and they fixed it for free.

It's not worth taking one apart. As soon as you do that Microsoft won't touch it, and chances are you won't be able to fix it either.

Put up with it or pay the money. Anything else will just cause you grief

I'm not under warranty anymore, and I wasn't then, either. I had it fixed at a store called GamerDoc.

No you're not. Only the red rings is covered for three years not any other problems according to official policies but you could probably get them to fix it with a little lie

Yeah we're in the same boat man. For a few months now I've just been installing games on my hard drive because of that problem. Guess I'll be buying the Modern Warfare 2 bundle with a 250 gig hard drive in November to replace it!

There is your problem.

I hope they bring out a new Xbox soon. One that actually works when they launch it.
Sure it has a crap ton of pretty damn good games, but you would think Microsoft would have tested their product properly before launch?

Try buying a laser lens cleaning CD, use it, and then see if it works.
If not. Getting Microsoft to look at it would be the only option that I can see.

I think i might have a similar problem. is it telling you there's no disc even when you've just put it in?

And I dont do it nicely either. I boiled a slug in highly saturated salt water and put a wasp in a microwave. I hate wasps so much.

Yep. But it's only for newer games and movies. It's a real pain in the ass.

well im pretty sure i scratched my laser by moving the xbox whilst it was running, thus causing the disc to brush against the laser. maybe you've done the same thing?
