I think there must be a problem with the processor, i have known people in similar cases. If you got the warranty from where you got it, (ex. Circuit City, Best Buy) then go take it back and they will 90% of the time give you a new one. If you dont its okay because Xbox 360 has a three year warranty given to every owner free. Call Microsoft/ Xbox customer service and they will send you a empty box in about 3-5 days. It will take them about a week or two to fix but it will work perfectly as did mine.

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games

The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

Faulty usb port?

From your description it does sound like your Xbox 360 USB port is shot or you have just racked up the hours on three different guitar hero guitars. Not to doubt your skills or the dedication any of us have to the game I am just leaning towards it being the USB port. Here is the link to the Microsoft run down of how to eliminate the possible problems.

If you were still under warranty this would be the check list they would have you go through prior to taking the console back. I am assuming that since you have gone through three different guitars you were switching out the USB connector to see if you had a faulty connection on the cord connecting your guitar to your actual box. If you haven't checked this you could potentially solve the problem with $5 and a trip to best buy.

If you have already checked this I would check out this site that offers the manual on how to repair your Xbox. They have step by steps on how to solve just about any Xbox 360 and Playstation problems. Here is the link to the overall tutorial:">
In particular here is a link of fitting a standard USB port into your machine in case you feel like Frankensteining it:">

Opening/closing game, not very fun.

looks like your switch is jamed or fried, or you installed a modchip incorrectly. If you still are in the return/exchange period, exchange it
