Thread: Faulty Xbox360 DVD drive

    Default Faulty Xbox360 DVD drive

    I'm having a problem with one of my 360's. The DVD drive refuses to work. When ever I insert a disc (Game, Movie, Audio CD, etc.), it will say "Reading Disc...", make some buzzing noises for a minute, then say "Open Tray" again. Can this problem be fixed? This sucks. Thanks.

    No, don't do this, you can break your drive, forever. Next time, read the manual

    Mac's are very different to an Xbox 360.

    Ta for the correction. I just though that a DVD drive was a DVD drive, regardless of what machine it was in.

    As for reading the manual, pah! What do you take me for?

    I had it on it's side. Does this make a difference? If so then Microsoft needs to make better stuff.

    best not open it, because if you do you void the warranty. I would guess the best thing is to get a new xbox of MS

    I haven't opened this 360 before and it is unmodded. I have no idea what type of drive it is. Is there a specific way to tell?
