It only plays Normal Xbox games


The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

Unplayable disc


There is a good chance you DVD drive might have either a faulty motor or laser. In this case if you have any type of warranty you should use it but if you don't you'll have to purchase either a new XBox 360 or a new DVD drive.

The new DVD drive will not be able play games if you simply swap the drives. In order to have it play games you'll have to flash the old Key from the broken drive onto the replacement drive.

Either that or if your system is still under the 3 year warranty from RROD by Microsoft you can try to induce RROD on your XBox 360 and take up a claim with them. Most of the time they send u a refurbrished XBox 360 or a new one.

My X box wont play anything..... it says ''unplayable disc''


The DVD rom is probably on its last legs.  Call support and see what they can do for you.  I don't think this is covered under the extended warranties, and it will probably cost you money to fix if its is out of warranty.
Mine did this to me and I am in the middle of trying to repair it myself.  
My suggestion is put it in a enclosed cabinet so that it overheats and redrings so you can send it back.

Unplayable disc


I've had similar problems and I got myself a CD lens cleaner.

Its a cd/dvd sized disc that has a few small bristle on it so when u put it into your drive, it spins and cleans the lens.

They are pretty cheap and you can get them in any electrical store and I've seen them in a few supermarkets.

Also check that your disc's are clean too.

360 won't read update disc


Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
