Xbox 360 optical drive only reads DVD's and will not play games.
Posted on 2010-11-24
We purchased our Xbox360 in 2006 and it's no longer under warranty.
The original optical drive failed so we purchased the Toshiba/Samsung TS-H943 Microsoft Xbox 360 Internal DVD-ROM Drive as a replacement.
The drive is advertised as a replacement drive for the all xbox360 consoles, however, when we place an XBox 360 game into the new drive, our only option is to play DVD.
How do we get the new drive to read game disks?
Here' are the spec's of the new drive:
Replacement DVD drive for your Xbox 360 game system
16x maximum read speed (DVD)
48x maximum read speed (CD)
512 KB buffer
