For what you pay for an Xbox, there’s a lot that seems to go catastrophically wrong.
Red ring of death, DVD drive failures, and excessive overheating come to mind.
Today’s frustration focuses on a more in-depth problem: why won’t my Xbox 360 read game discs?
: If you are experiencing problems after updated to Xbox 360 dashboard version 2.0.15574, please use the Customizer software to update your Turbo Fire 2 controller.
The latest firmware version should resolve this issue.
When the security settings are set high, running some programs on Windows 7 may cause communication problems between the software, the controller, and our servers.
I’m sure you’re gentle with all of your toys, especially the Xbox. Hey, it’s a lot better than buying an all-new system.
Better yet, Clean Dr works fast, even if your very dirty lens requires a few rounds of cleaning.
After a few minutes, you will be back trying to beat The Four Kings in Dark Souls 2. All jokes aside, we’re experiencing another truly amazing time in gaming.
Don’t let little hardware hiccups derail what matters most – the magic of the game.
If you’re like me, you’ve taken your Xbox apart, wrapped towels around it, and sacrificed a baby lamb to the You Tube gods in hopes a twelve year old’s how-to video will end your misery.
All in a last-ditch effort to just play Call of Duty 47. There’s no easy way to get inside and scrub that sucker with Windex and a paper towel, but you’re the determined type who doesn’t want to risk not being able to play GTAV every hour of every day. The major contributing factor to a disc read error is a dirty optical lens (the one that your Xbox 360 laser passes through to read the disc itself).
You could send it in to Microsoft, but then that usually requires 2-4 weeks of no Xbox. If there is dirt or dust on the laser lens, your system will eventually fail to read the game disc.
Lots of brushes and DVD-style discs have been on the market for years that claim to clean the lens effectively. Sure, cleaning a game system isn’t a dangerous task (unless you’ve got your Xbox opened up and are removing hardware with pliers outdoors during a thunderstorm). The laser lens can get knocked out of alignment easily with the wrong approach. Feel free to do your research (this guy really seems to like it, and swears like a sailor) and carefully follow these instructions once you buy it.
