Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating. They did not extend the warranty to any other issues. DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.
You can try a factory reset of the console...
Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.
Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.
Press the following key combination
Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X
This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.
If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty. If not they will repair it for usually 99.00

This is a common problem for this model. It has a memory IC that must be replaced. This is a surface mounted IC that requires exceptional soldering skills to replace. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have repaired a good number of these for this exact problem. Unless you have great soldering skills it is not something that should be attempted to do yourself, it can cause permanent damage to the board if not done perfectly.
If you have the proper skills and soldering equipment I will be happy to give you the Pioneer part number so you can replace it yourself. If not, then you really should just take it to a service center and have a professional do this.
Let me know if you would like that part number.
