Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?

This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Played too many dvds on the xbox, now it says play dvd notplaygam

best thing to do is send it back in to microsoft, if you open the xbox 360 case you will void the warranty, and they wont bother helping you. If you have already voided the warranty, you can find xbox 360 dvd drives on ebay or craigslist for around 30$ USD. Only the drive alone, not a whole xbox

Open tray arrrghhh!!!

You may need to open the DVD rom drive after you have opened the 360 case. (check for guide on how to do) and remove the tray and you will see a white sliding bar. This serves to 'latch' the drive in so that the laser can enagage. If it doesnt latch properly then it will eject.

I adjusted this part to the main black cog before sliding back in.

It did the trick for careful though opening both the 360 and the drive as it's tricky. Do your research....
