Unable To Read Any Originals Games/audio Cds/dvds.
Posted 16 July 2003 - 04:13 AM
I am unable to read any Games or Audios cds or DVds ... I always obtain the msg of "wrong disc inserted, verify if it is a xbox games, bla bla bla, press eject" I tried to clean the lense with a special CD but of course... the DVD-rom was unable to read heh... . So I decided to open the box and clean the lense manually ... with a Q-tip and a very little quantity of rubbing alcool, i clean the lense and the little mirror a the back of the drive... But no result ... The drive spins and... i got the msg...
Anyone can help ? or maybe i can buy another dvd-rom ?
Thx for your reply guys

Btw, my symptoms are original retail discs almost never read. Every once in a while they do read properly though. All of my various dvdr backups work perfectly. It's only retail discs that cause problems.
Thanks in advance...

I had a friend bring his xbox over and we swapped DVD drives. Same problems exhibited with my drive in his system. His drive worked perfectly in mine.
This leads me to an uncomfortable conclusion. My (Thompson) drive is screwed. Does anyone know where I can buy replacement IEEE cables for the inside of this drive. Or anywhere that I can get an entire replacement drive (other than ebay).
I suppose I could attempt to adjust the POT, but frankly that scares the hell out of me.
Any help appreciated...
