Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I have the same problem.play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.
When this happens, it either symbolizes that somehow, your tsop32 chip has corrupted in your dvd drive and has lost the dvd key, or you (someone) has attempted to flash the firmware on the dvd drive and it has ended in a failure and destroyed the initial firmware. basicly, if you have your dvd key, you can try to reflash the drive with working firmware (tutorials can be found everywhere) or, if you have warrenty left, send it in. if all else fails, find a person who knows how to disassemble an xbox 360 + dvd drive, desolder the tsop32 chip, and rip the firmware. this can be costly though, and you'll need a new dvd drive afterwords if your old one gets broken in the process. and if you can't get the dvd key, well, your 360 is now an expensive dvd player.
best of luck

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

This problem is caused by your disc drive.... A new disc drive bought off of ebay, generally costs about 50 bucks, including the shipping and handling..... You will need to open your xbox to get the model number... yes, it does matter... Once you get the new disc drive... you need to open up the old disc drive... and you will see a memory chip inside and you will need to be VERY careful not to rip any of the parts it is connected to... once you have the chip out... you will need to take the chip out of the new disc drive, and replace it with the chip from your old disc drive... (each xbox 360 has its own unique memory, which can only otherwise be installed by flashing it through a sata computer which much more complicated than it really should be).... once you put the old chip into the new disc drive... put everything back together... for a tutorial on opening an xbox 360 and also fixing disc drive in your 360... i recommend youtube,,, and the person's name i recommend is "fixyourownxbox" These videos are definitely helpful, and saved me mucho dinero $ :D.... Good luck... if you have anymore questions, dont be afraid to ask... i would be more than happy to answer them

this happens when the laser is dirty, not getting enough power, or simply dying.
First open it up and blow out any dust and clean off the laser with q-tip and alcohol.
Then try to dvd laser POT tweak which adjust the power going to the laser.
If that doens't fix it, then you need install a new laser or get a replacement drive.
