What to Do When an Xbox 360 Stops Reading Game Discs

The Xbox 360 has a history of technical issues, not the least of which are the problems with its disc drive. Recently, my own beleaguered Xbox began to read game discs poorly, sometimes giving an open tray error or simply calling the disc bad, while it read music CDs completely fine.
If your Xbox 360 won’t read game discs, but seems to read other types of discs, here’s what you’ll need to do to get it working again.

1. First, clean the disc drive. Often, an Xbox 360 will read other types of discs because, well, they’re easier to read than the game discs. A bit of dirt on the lens can certainly disrupt the console’s ability to play games, so you’ll want to clean the lens. It would void your warranty to open up the Xbox 360 and clean the lens manually with a bit of isopropyl alcohol (though you’re welcome to do so if you’re a fairly technical person and your warranty’s already void, just be very careful), but you can often clean the lens the lazy way by opening the disc drive and spraying compressed air towards the general area of the lens. Use short, controlled bursts, and be sure to hold the can of compressed air properly–there’s instructions on the side of the can. Don’t spray too much. After a minute or so, try the drive and see if it works. Note that you’ll have to restart the system to see if it’s working.

2. Clean the vents. If the Xbox 360 is overheating, it may need to have better ventilation–overheating causes a lot of disc errors, though it’s less of a common cause than a dirty lens when other types of discs are reading. Still, worth a shot. Clean the back vents with compressed air and be sure to place the Xbox 360 somewhere where it’s less likely to overheat–keep it away from walls and out of cabinets that can cause the problem.

3. Use a disc cleaner. You can also use commercial disc cleaners, which are discs with brushes that you touch with isopropyl alcohol, then play like a CD. This is good if there’s a bit of grime you can’t get, though usually they don’t do any more than the compressed air will do, and they certainly cost a bit more. If you’ve got one laying around though, it’s worth a shot.

Do you have any other tips for fixing an Xbox 360 that won’t read game discs? Post in our comments section below.t

Game Review – the Adventures of Dr. Franken (SNES)

The Adventures of Dr. Franken is a game initially released for the Game Boy by Elite Systems and published by Kemco. It was later ported over to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993 after having experienced great success on the Game Boy platform.
In The Adventures of Dr. Franken, the plot isn’t really presented to you. Like many other games of this type, the goal here is to go around and defeat or avoid enemies while surving the individual levels. While this lacks depth in terms of actual storyline viability, it doesn’t detract from the amount of fun you can have from the game. Since The Adventures of Dr. Franken is a standardized platformer, it retains its edge despite having no plot (which isn’t really necessary; after all, some of the Mario games don’t have much of a plot).

The graphics in The Adventures of Dr. Franken are decent; I’d say they’re average. The developers certainly could’ve invested a lot more time into the sprites and environment backgrounds, but given the budget and timeframe they were working with I would say they did a pretty fair job. The character sprite himself is rather pixelated and looks completely silly, but it’s quite an upgrade from the GB version. Environments are also pixelated and pay no attention to details.

The audio in The Adventures of Dr. Franken is pretty average, too; the developers didn’t attempt to make this anything noteworthy. Since this game is a sort-of generic platformer, there’s simply nothing to speak of in terms of advantage in making a good sound track for it. That said, the music doesn’t even take advantage of the stereo sound capabilities of the SNES! The main theme here is Moonlight Sonata, which isn’t really ever altered significantly.

The Adventures of Dr. Franken is a rather easy game, with the control scheme being that of a standard platformer. While it’s not overly simplistic by any means, there’s no added depth or complexity of gameplay. Despite this, I rather enjoy Mario-style platformers, so I didn’t dislike it.

In closing, I’d give The Adventures of Dr. Franken a reasonable 2.5 out of 5. While it’s lackluster in terms of audio and graphics, it has decent game play and is reminiscent of many popular games like Mario. Seemingly, The Adventures of Dr. Franken is a stylized version of a classic game we’ve all played for years.

Review: Monster Hunter Freedom 2 for PSP

Monster Hunter Freedom 2: For the PSP – Big Review! – Most of us PSP users should know about the awesome game that is Monster Hunter Freedom by Capcom. Well today, the Sequel has just released, action packed, and funner than ever. Even if you aren’t into RPGs or action games, if you own a PSP, definitely give this game a chance.
The Setting is in the Pokke Village, a snowy mountainous area of monstrous creatures and fantasy. You, play as a Monster Hunter that is in charge of keeping your Village safe from all creatures that give a threat to the people. In this game, expect many, many dinosaur and reptile related monsters. This is basically a hack-and-slash game, but has much detail and declines mindless button-mashing most of the game play. During the game you will have many quests that you must accomplish in order to help out your village. Most Villagers will ask for your help, to either defend them against a certain creature, whish is usually a big boss for you, or fight against a group of monsters attacking the village.

Other villagers will ask your assistance in finding herbs and ingredients for them. If villagers seem pretty fine on their own and have no needs of your work, you can always go to the Gathering Hall where quests are posted there. Customization is very complex and simple, allowing you to choose your basic looks (hair, face, etc.) and even your voice sound. You also have your own home where cooking cats create food for you on the spot. There are over 700 weapons in the game in which you can slay your targeted enemies, 250 quests, and 1,400 armor pieces! With all this, Monster Hunter Freedom 2 should keep you occupied just arranging what to bring to battle. This game uses real life physics, and realistic life rules such as, energy and damage.

If you go into a cold area with light clothing, you will experience cold bite, or freezing setbacks lowering your energy to attack and run as fast. Same rules apply with hot temperature, wearing too much clothing to a boiling area will be too hot and heavy to attack with your best of your abilities. If this does happen, there are always items to help you out, such as warm food, and cool drinks to gain energy and power back. Another helpful item is the paintball, which you splatter on your enemy when it is low on health, just in case it runs away you can always track it down. After a monster dies, you can gather other items from its corpse such as bones to create weapons with, or use the meat for food or armor.

The camera in the game is kind of funky, frequently not giving you a focused camera to move around, focusing on other monster besides the main target, and no lock-on, which can add difficulty when attacking a certain monster in a crowd. It isn’t a huge problem though, as the game play is smooth and usually not a big thing to worry about, only a minor downside in the game. Along with one downside, another one is that monsters are much bigger and smarter now. They seem to have their own mind, not just following AI. You might think, what is so bad about that? Well sometimes they are too difficult, too big, and much more clever than you are. If you slash a dinosaur over and over again it will change tactics and quickly out wit you.

It is especially harder when tracking down a specific flying monster, once low on health, it can either fly away, or find reinforcements turning your hills into mountains, and although this is a good challenge, the game has many good hard levels, and bad hard levels. You will usually end up dying, reloading and starting your search again, hopefully more prepared than previously. Now if you feel that the game is way too hard, you can always find some backup of your own. Using the Ad-Hoc feature on your PSP you can play together with your friends and team up creating more of ease the next time. As we always hear, two monster hunters are better than one. Finding your monster hunter is very simple. Go into the Gathering Hall, and wait till one of you accepts the request, and then presto! While in the Hall together, you can sit, chat, drink, and exchange your stats. Overall, this game is very deep and action packed. Every PSP user should give this game a try, because it is just simple fun. Not complicated, just a fun run fight hack-and-slash adventure game that many people can enjoy.

Cheating your way to the top – Madden NFL Mobile 17

This time around I would like to discuss which is better to use, cheats or Madden NFL hacks in order to get ahead of your fellow players?  Let’s see what makes these different and what’s the pros and cons of each approach.

Pros and cons of hacks:


  • They are great if you need a quick fix, especially in terms of cash and coins.
  • If you need to stagnate because of a bad financial situation or decision
  • They are very easy to access for the mobile app and you don’t even need to download them or use any difficult cracks in order to use them.


  • They can make you rely on them.
  • Getting a hack is easy but they won’t make you a better manager or more responsible player
  • If you use them frequently, it may harm your whole game. After all it’s all about gaming and playing and planning. When some get their hands on unlimited hack resources, it will make them go out of line pretty easily.
  • Hacks are often considered illegal. If one doesn’t deal with them responsibly they may jeopardize the whole game.


Pros and cons of cheats:


  • While cheats will show you lots of tricks within the game, you won’t have to cheat per se. You will only get smarter and will get to know tons of information more.
  • There is literally tons of them. Those fans who have been playing for years are collecting these to publish them for others from time to time. You can soon become an expert if you start going through all these cheat sheets.
  • Once you start to get into the game, you can start preparing and sharing your own cheat sheets on gaming forums. Not only will you become popular, this is also a great gaming community building method.


  • It is slow when you need quick help or when you need to earn lots of coins.
  • It takes plenty of time to learn and for you to be ready to use them properly.

As I have seen a very interesting phenomenon online as in people confusing cheats with hacks and vice versa, I felt that I needed to clarify the main differences between the two.

As you can see the two are ultimately very different because hacks basically break-in and exploit a backdoor within the game and they will give you effortless and totally unmerited benefits cheats are the tricks that tell you how you can outsmart the system by doing or repeating specific steps in a specific stage. Cheats will ultimately make you become cleverer while playing.

While there are literally dozens of pages offering Madden NFL mobile hack this or that way, these are not static websites, they change from time to time because hacks are ultimately not legal when it comes to gaming. Overall after you find a good site, I suggest you to use hacks once or twice but never rely on them all too much to avoid losing your love for the game aspect of it.

Is there an Easy Way to Get Cheats for Dragon City Game?

If you are just short of a few gems, gold and food while playing Dragon City then do not worry. Are you just short of becoming a Dragon Master, but for the dwindling supply of resources?  You have the right to get as much of these resources to keep up with your winning streak. But how are you going to do this? You have the single well proven way to do it like the rest of your kin in this thrilling game. This is by browsing online for the several websites that literally throw these gems, gold and food for anyone who asks for it. The Dragon City Hack was born out of this very demand for resources among players. It would do you a lot good than without for sure.

Gaming with more confidence

A lot of people would feel peeved if they lose out of resources when actually they were a just a few moments away from winning. Hence, a continuous supply of such cheats would give you enough momentum while playing and also boost your confidence. It would be wiser not to quit from your game when your conscience says that you are about to beat down your opponents.

Again, for new comers this is surely a big relief as they are quite new to the game and quite naturally may lose their resources pretty fast. Further, there is no need for you to pay anything as there are good sites that sell these resources free of cost. All you need to do is to give is a couple of detail. This is the operating system of your device and the number of resources that you may need.

There is no downloading of powerful software and the Dragon City Hack are the only thing that you will need. Most companies offer the same with some slight variations in their offers.  You may after having uploaded the tools generate any number of resources and then restart the game.

The Dragon City is, as you may be aware already, full of activities and you may not even have an idea about how fast you are spending your resources. Naturally, you may even need it for providing food for the dragons, hatching of eggs and raising your own dragons. For all these you need your resource generating tools.


Powerful online generator

Your resource generator is quite powerful and has enough ability to keep a few steps before the gaming site. This ensures you with relative stability of getting resources without any hindrance and without much of risks. This is due to the software that these Dragon City Hack websites use. The software is constantly monitored, kept updated and is always free from malware.

You may now without the least fear concentrate on your game and try to become a Dragon Master. This of course to a great deal depend upon the way you use your free resources as the opponents too would have dived at the opportunity. In the end your resources and your commitment counts.
