Does not recognize anything in DVD drive. Game or CD, nothing. No error messages. Fan is not running.
Xbox 360 born date 9/07. Arcade edition but added 20gig harddrive. Unit was working perfectly, turned it off for the night. Next morning put a movie in to watch and I could hear the DVD drive spin but did not load movie. Put a game in and it did not play or recognize the disc. No error messages or anything. Just acts like you don't have anything in the drive. Also noticed that I don't hear the loud fan running which is normally running. Any ideas? Thanks.

try cleaning the laser with a cleaning disk if still no joy its a new laser by the sound of it might be cheaper to find a repair shop local than sending it to ms
You will not have any problems using the Hard drive on your new console. The only catch is any Live Arcade downloads will not work offline until you do the DRM transfer. Even though you are using the same Hard Drive the DRM is married to the original console. They have made it easy to transfer now. All you need is to be logged into XBOX Live and a computer that is on the internet. Just turn on your console, log it into XBOX Live, and use the computer to go to www.xbox.com/drm That will solve all of your problems.
The Arcade model comes with no harddrive, no hdmi (for digital connection to an HDTV), and I beleive the controller is wired instead of wireless. If you are planning on just playing games then the arcade may be a good choice for you as it's cheaper but you may find yourself wanting a hard drive sooner than later. Without a hard drive you will not be able to purchase or rent movies and you will not be able to download game demos and Xbox Live Arcade games. To compensate Microsoft includes a disc with some of the greatest hits of XBox Live Arcade with the Arcade version. The Pro comes with a 20GB hard drive but still no HDMI. The Elite version has a 120GB hard drive and HDMI. For most people the Pro is the one to get. If you were to get the Arcade then purchase a hard drive later you will pay more than the price of the pro.
