Re: Xbox 360 draw fault
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
