Works fine but doesn't read games and DVDs and makes ejecting sound

If it will not read anything then something is wrong with your disk drive, you can pay to have this repaired or do it yourself, disk drive replacements can be easily found on eBay for not very much, however i would recommend cleaning the disks you are trying to play in case the problem is a simple case of a bad disc. Hope this helped. 1_11_2014_4_51_07_pm.png

My xbox 360 doesn't read anything games,dvds nothing and my xbox is updated how can i fix it

First attempt removing the hard drive, this might make it possible to read the disc. Otherwise it might be a problem with the reader within the Xbox, if you still have a warranty, send it in to Microsoft.

DVD drive has stopped reading discs, it attempts to read the disc and then goes to open tray??

This is a very common problem for the Xbox 360. Fortunately it usually isn't a serious problem. The first thing I would do is clean it. If you have a bottle of air duster, that would work well. Here's a link to a product you might want to try. You can also go to any major store to find it like Walmart, Staples, Office Max etc.

If that doesn't work, I would recommend a disc drive replacement. The lasers in the disc drive tend to go bad and don't read the disc normally. These are only around $30, so it is better than buying a new Xbox. If you feel confident, you can do it yourself or send it in to someone and they can do it. Good luck!

No discs can be read by the console. It keeps saying open the tray after it tries to read the disc.

Yes, this is not normally the drive that is faulty.

It is the heat being taken at the back of the drive on the sensors and if you stop the heat you will be back up and running, to do this send it back in to Microsoft or repair it yourself using a good guide.

Xbox will not read any 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.
