    My Xbox won't read any games but will read CD's. I haven't done any modification on it. I read a discussion about it and hoping I'll get some answers on what to do

    Warrantee? What warrantee?
    M$ will charge you more to fix it than buying a new one.

    It sounds as if your DVD drive is bad. If you want to learn how to replace your DVD drive, do a web search. It is as easy as replacing a PC drive, but you'll need a couple of Torx screwdriver bits T10 and T20 (available at your nearest hardware store).

    Check out:

    You can check around the site to see how to attempt to repair your DVD drive and either buy a replacement from him or shop around the net for your best deal. You might as well try to fix it because if you do, you'll have saved yourself some money and if you don't, you need a new DVD drive anyway.
