    Instead of pressing the drive's eject button, have you tried using Open and Close disc tray from the Dashboard?

Try this, while the tray is closing press the eject button again. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the drive. buy the same model and move your logic board over to the replacement drive. It's paired with the xbox 360.

The disk drawer wont stay shut


Hello friend,
Your disk drawer must have some how come off track, and if it wont stay shut your next option will be to have it opened up and slide the drawer back on the rail.

Disk Drive Problems


Your old xbox is not up to date, so it is reading it wrong. Just because the older they are if not updated on live it will read games and DVDs wrong.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

Disc Tray wont stay shut


A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut


either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.

Tray wont stay shut


Listen to it when you put a disk in, does it sound like it is still trying to load?

More than likely it is not loading completely. The loading mechanism is out of time. Jumped a tooth on the loading gear.

Need to be re timed.

Xbox 360 disk drive does not close


Hi there. There is a solution out there, called the 'rubberband mod'. By tieing a rubberband to the rail on which the laser slides, you restrict the movement of the laser, and force it to stay within a readable range. It is essentially a bumper. Here's a link with a video that gives all the info on it; http://www.360mods.net/News/article/sid=71.html Hope that helps ! cheebster.
