    Drive not reading discs

    My 2nd hand XBox will not read any original game discs or DVDs. It was retailed in December '01, and does have save game data on the hard drive. When I insert a disc, it says that it is not DVD, Game data, or Audio disc, and says 'Remove disc to continue.' Is there a way to fix this without paying MonopolySoft $99 to fix/replace my system?

    Make sure you have your date and time set correctly - this might sound obvious but if it isn't set to the current date or time then discs off any kind will not run.

    I found this out recently, I set the date and time and hey presto - all my games worked again.

    Make sure the discs are clean before you play them.

    Dust and fingerprints can really mess up your drive !!
