Disc keeps ejecting

Sounds like your disc drive is malfunctioning. Honestly the only thing i could possibly think of is that the button for the disc drive could've gotten stuck and opens the 360 by any sudden movements.

Doesnt read my discs

This happens to me sometimes as well, but usually it's very infrequent, and happens mostly with old original xbox games.

Basically, the xbox is just temporarily confused. Just eject and reinsert the disc and try again. Usually, the second try always worked for me. If that won't work, simply reboot the xbox with the disc in the drive. Now try to run the game.

Let us know if this works.

Clicking noise

The only way to fix it is to open up the disc drive and reset the the mechanism that sets the disc with the laser. As the system draws the disc in, it also raises the laser unit that is hooked to a gear driven mechinism. Sometimes when dropped, kicked, smacked...etc, the gears can come off of alignment. It's a pain to repair but really not that hard. You really need some patience and a to be carefull not to damage anything. Hope this helps.
