    Whenever i put in a newer game, it gives me the "Xbox don't recoginize this Cd or DvD or it could be dirty or damaged, and im wondering where i could find one of them on the internet, im to lazy to look it up... Or would it just be smarter to buy a new x-box?

    as others have said, try a CD cleaner if that doesnt work order a dew drive, if I remember correctly there are about three different drives with the thompson being the best as they read CDR's.

    By poking around inside your xbox you will void the warranty, but swapping out the cd drive is very easy.

    yeah i know that thompson is bad but he doesnt plan on doing any mods. He just does lan parties and stuff like that.
