Re: unplayable disc

Open up the console and open up the CD Drive. Clean the lens of the CD Drive with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then put the console back together.

It only plays Normal Xbox games

The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

Crack open the DVD case and see whats going on and try fixing it yourself. OR Buy a new drive off of eBay and transfer the firmware key over from the old drive too the new one.
