Re: xbox360 game issue
The dvd drive prolly needs to be replaced. ive had this issue plenty of time before and it sometimes turned out to be the cd its self. the console might not be able to read the cd becuase of some kind of damage, try a dif 360 game.
if that dont work open up the cd and look on the dvd drive there will me a model number of a dvd drive. go to ebay.com or google.com and find a place that sells brand new or used but working dvd drive and purchase it and add it to the console. this will fix the issue of any reading cd problems.
make sure you purchase the correct dvd drive model

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video
game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in
the drive) will eventually burn out.
The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start
freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether
and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the
tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in
You can find more information about this issue, find parts to repair it, or send your system to repair all at the following website:
The most common reason for the Console saying reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!
Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.
you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray and it should load. This worked for me 2 times.
This actually concerns the entire loading dock assembly and optical lens. this is an all in one piece. you can separately, replace the optical lens but, if the tray is not operating smoothly,i recommend replacing the entire DVD drive.
You can order a new DVD drive at this link below.
Well I just recently purchased an XBOX 360 about a month ago form
gamestation(used). It was giving me disc read errors every time iplayed
it, but i opened it up and cleaned my TOSHIBA drive and wiped
everything down with a cotton bud, and then lubed up all of the parts which
needed to be.
