Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
This is normally because of the receptors on the back of the DVD drive overheating, you have no idea how many people I see everyday with this error and it is not a faulty DVD drive.
It shuts itself down however, to prevent the heat build up on the chips.
All you need to do is stop the heat build up and you will be able to play your games again

This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be careful when
buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage your machine or
at the very least will be inferior and not last long.
if your 360 reads dvd's but not games it may be repairable but if it wont read anything then your better off replacing the laser. strip down the console and strip the dvd drive, take out the laser and look underneath it, it will have a code such as HD57 or something else, note that down. Visit ebay and search for the laser with the same code, buy it, fit it in and make sure you de-solder the static blob of solder before using it (search the net about this or ask the seller) and then try your machine again :)

SOURCE: xbox 360 doesn't read any discs
Forget everything you have read.
There are 3 reasons why your drive has failed.
1 Most common is a weak or dead laser . Their cheap and not
hard to install yourself . I have never seen a dirty laser , this
is due to the high RPM of the drive 99% of the dust is swept
2 The spindle motor has seized up or to stiff to spin up.
You can easily determine this by turning it by hand or
listening for it to spin up when you place a disk in the
3 The worm gear motor pin bearing is worn . This will
normalize make a whining sound when it trys to seek
game data from the disk
Remedy for problem # 1 is to replace the laser.
Remedy for problem # 2 is to replace the drive and put
the old drives P.C. board in the new drive.
and the same for problem # 3
