The laser is suspect , but if you can get it to read
than I believe you may have worn bushings in
the spindle motor .
If you open your unit up ,then remove and open the CD rom
drive up , the spindle hub should turn with very little resistance
if it stiff then turn it upside down and take a Q-tip with a soaking of
wd40 and poke it around the underside of the hub and
some times you can free them up enough to get a little more
mileage. Make sure to dab off all of the excess WD-40.
Just some tip/trick

You cant replace the drive they are locked to the motherboard!( wont work on other motherboards) Well you could spoof it to think that the new drive is the original. This is not easy stuff to do 1 mess up and you have yourself a 400.00 paper weight or a bricked drive.
You could open it up and try the rubber band trick, that's for modded boxes that are having trouble reading certain media types"discs".
Remember if you open your 360 you void the warranty.
