This is a common problem and thankfully it has not red ringed you yet. If you search around there are alot of so called tips and tricks to fix this, such as the rubber band trick, cleaning different areas of the drive. To avoid getting a red ring you should replace the optical drive yourself. You can check this link for some of those solutions http://www.fixya.com/support/t467081-xbox_360_open_tray_error, but the easiest and best way to make sure this gets fixed is to replace the optical drive. This is a link to an optical drive you can purhcase http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=4070361.

    Microsoft is a pain to get it replaced if your not getting a red ring. They will try to charge you even if youre under warranty. In order to keep your warranty if you change it yourself head over to youtube and do a search for removing the labels, its fairly easy.

Your DVD drive lens may have a problem reading data from the Disc.
The first simplest solution is to find a way to clean the drive lens
(may involve opening the unit). While you're at it, vacuum all the dust
inside the player. I use a Q-Tip with a DVD cleaning solution to clean
the lens. In the worse case, it's time for a new Player.
