Best thing to do is send it back in to microsoft, if you open the xbox 360 case you will void the warranty, and they wont bother helping you. If you have already voided the warranty, you can find xbox 360 dvd drives on ebay or craigslist for around 30$ USD. Only the drive alone, not a whole xbox

My xbox 360 plays games as dvds!?


I doubt you put all your games :). your XBOX 360 is probably hacked to play homebrew games. that happens when usually a new protection is enabled on newer games, every several months new protection is issued to restrict piracy. the only thing is to get it hacked with a newer DVD-ROM security override.
