It sounds like a DVD drive error. When the center light inside the "ring of light" blinks rapidly it thinks the DVD drive is either open or not connected. You can buy a new DVD drive off Ebay for a decent price or take it to a professional shop. When changing the DVD drive you have to also put the original PCB from the old drive onto the new one or it will not play games. It will play DVD's all day but no games. There is a bit of soldering involved. If your not confident you can make the repair check out this site for help. www.jbgaming.com they do good work and are very reasonable.
Disconnect all cables from the Xbox 360 and remove the
faceplate from the front of the console. Lift the plastic tabs on the
outer shell and remove the plastic casing from the machine. Unscrew the

and SATA cables from the rear of the DVD drive and lift it out of the

Buy a new laser specifically for the brand of dvd drive, like phillips, hitachi, ect... only, the laser, if you purchase the whole dvd drive, then you have to flash it and all...too complicated. just the laser assembly and reinstall and enjoy.
the x clamp fix is for heat issues...this is a dvd drive issue...you may need to replace your dvd drive...but you cant just swap them out...you have to transfer your original PCB board from your broken drive to the new drive or it WILL NOT WORK....the dvd drive and motherboard are paired by a key...the keys for both have to be the same...you need to find out which drive you have...the BenQ is a pain unless you know how to flash the drive to get the key and transfer it to the new one...otherwise it means a soldering iron and some tiny little wires and some patience...there are tutorials and changing dvd drives...just google it

to play copied dvd's ( i think thats what you typed ), you will need to do a few things, including taking your xbox apart, and connecting it to your computer. You will also need to flash your dvd drive.
Quick NEED list:
1. SATA Cable 2. SATA Card 3. torx screw driver 4. torx 8 and 10 bits 5. Flash / Pen drive (USB)
To do this, your computer has to have some kind of SATA port. You can buy a SATA card for $25.00 at your local computer hardware store. Also make sure you pick up at least an 18 inch SATA cable. Now once you have both of these, then you will have to take your x-box apart.

you flushed it wrong, they told that if you replace your dvd drive without or wrong flush the system, the system will no longer accept that dvd drive. Unfortunately I dont know how to flush the xbox. You need to look for website that teach or know how to flush the xbox before you connect your new dvd drive.
