When I eject some games without turning of the xbox 360, the tray ejects but the disk will keep spinning in the tray for a couple of seconds. Only some games do this, while others stop completely and then eject. Any help on how to fix would be appreciated. Also, someone told me that at the dashboard, with a disk in it should not be spinning. Is this true? The game spins but slower than when the game runs.
I had this same problem, so i figured, "what the hell?" i might as well open the dvd drive up and clean it out. so i looked for how to video for taking apart my 360 and opening the dvd drive on you tube( this voids your warantee of course) and i cleaned all the dust out with compressed air and swabs dipped in alchohol. this worked for me so i hope it works for you.

This is likely the same issue occurring when the disk tray will not open either. Suspect your drive belt is worn and requires servicing. This is best done by an xbox servicing agent. Not too expensive. I have been suffering with a tray that will not open for over 2 years now, however, I am able to fix it simply by ensuring a disk is always left in the tray. It only fails to open if there is no disk in the tray. Even then, I can open it by lifting slightly with a paperclip.
turn on your 360 and open the game drive. hold it open and turn of the 360. wait for it to power down completly. then turn the consel back on and it should close on its own now and stay closed as it should
Well this is common. Your xbox 360 dvd drive has a magnet either on the motor assembly or cover assembly used to keep the disk from moving or slipping after the disk is installed and spinning up.
Although a great idea it lacks long term longevity for the drive. As the magnet never weakens the internals of the drive do.The motor assembly that is responsible for moving the tray in and out and also releasing the hold on the disk through an actuation system attached to the drive unit simply weakens.
Over time the motor loses its torque that is nesessary to power through the magnet.Often requires a tap on the xbox to pop it loose while ejecting. Replacement of that motor or the drive are possibly fixes.
Other possibilities are;
Dirty drive.Dirt,hair jamming the actuation of the eject process.
Broken drive belt( I have seen brand new systems throw belts)
Remove the Faceplate by prying your fingernails into the bottom of your faceplate and pulling up. After removing the faceplate try ejecting the disk again. If it still does not eject. Straighten a paperclip and use the manual eject hole under the disk tray. Do not force anything. just push in the clip and pull the disk tray gently. Good luck. Make sure to remove your disk before sending it in for repairs because they will not send any disks back with the console.
