My Xbox is very tempermental. Sometimes it will reboot in the middle of the game, which is frustrating, but the real problem is afterwards it won't recognise there is a game in the drive, and worse the drive will not respond to when i tell it to open (on the dashboard through the controller, or through the button on the console). it says "opening" and "closing" when i press the button, but the machine will make no attempt to open the drive. i manually opened it, and it still did nothing. the xbox is no longer under warranty. any help would greatly be appreciated.
oh, it has done this in the past, and i will just give up for the day, and turn it on like the next day and it WILL open. so strange.

Re: Xbox 360 Drive not opening
I would suggest calling microsoft 1800-4my-xbox, letting them know the problem and seeing what they have to say. There is probably some faulty hardware somewhere and it would be best to have them look at it.
Hope it works out

probably bad drive. since you opened, you cannot have fixed unless you pay up. my advice, go online and search for the EXACT same dvd drive and order it. then search a video on youtube on how to replace it. replacement drive should run you about 30-40 bucks depending on brand and where you get it.
This sounds like a damaged or broken laser. This should be fixable by replacing the DVD drive, but this process WILL void your warrant (unless it has already been voided. If it has already been voided then full steam ahead with drive replacement.)
If you still have your warranty, then the best solution is to send it out to Microsoft for repair.
If your warranty is void, then replacing the drive will probably do the trick. It must be an xbox DVD drive. That is the only one that will work. They're on eBay for about $30, provided you can open an xbox and switch out the drives. If that doesn't work, then I'm stumped.
