Xbox 360 – PS3 – Wii

To play this disc put it in an Xbox 360 console – fix

When you try to use a  disc in your Xbox 360 console, you receive the following error message: To play this disc please put it in an Xbox 360 console.

This problem occurs because the console cannot read the disc correctly. This problem may occur for any of the following reasons:

  • The disc is dirty or damaged.
  • There are non-disc issues.

Method 1: Determine whether the disc is causing the problem

Try to use several similar Xbox 360-compatible discs in the console to determine whether the disc that you are using is causing the problem. To test whether the problem is caused by a specific disc, use a disc of the same type, such as a game disc, DVD movie, or music CD. If the problem does not occur when you use other discs, that specific disc might be the cause of the problem.
For disc-specific issues, check the disc for any visible signs of damage or dirt. Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces with your fingers. Clean the disc by using a soft cloth. Lightly wipe from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.

Method 2: Determine whether the console is causing the problem

The problem might not involve the disc. Instead, the problem might be caused by your Xbox 360 console. To check this, follow these steps:

  1. If you have access to another Xbox 360 console, try to play the disc on the other console. Or, if the disc is a CD or a DVD, try to play the disc on another device, such as a CD player, a DVD player, or a computer that is equipped to play CDs or DVDs.
  2. If you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive (HDD) or Memory Unit (MU) attached to the console, turn off the console, and remove the HDD and any attached MU. Then, turn on your console, and try the disc again. If this seems to resolve the problem, turn off your console, reattach the HDD and MU, and then delete any saved games for the game that is causing problems.
