This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a Q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft to see if the unit is still under warranty if the cleaning does not help.

The most common reason for the Console saying reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!

i myself have the same problem and currently working on it. go to youtube and type in "how to fix a broken xbox360 dvd disk drive" this guy is amazing and helped me out with the red rings of death. all u have to do is buy a new disk drive for about $50 and take some parts apart.
All dvd drives in an xbox360 are married to the motherboard. The new dvd drive needs to be flashed with the bin from the old drive in order for it to play games. We can do this for you if your interested email us email@example.com
You can't just replace the drive with a working drive on the xbox 360. the drive is married to the mainboard with a special key. If you replacing the drive with a drive that's the same brand/model them you can take the logic board from the old drive and put it in the replacement drive. otherwise you will have to extract the key from your old drive and patch in the new drive. not an easy task.
