You can try a new laser but usually if the laser is bad it will not spin the disk. It sounds to me that the DVD mech board is bad and since it is married to the motherboard you can't buy a new one without out getting the pair together.

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Xbox 360 will not read any disc


it may just be a dirty laser lens eye that needs to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. If cleaning doesn't work, then there could be something wrong the the lens laser circuit unit or motor. You may be able to find replacement on ebay or equivelant.
