My dvd drive wont respond at all. I try oping it and it doesn't open. I try to close it wont work. I manually open drive and pop a game in and doesn't even read the disc. Its like the power to the drive was cut. I might of had three red lights or hardware failure lights before the drive didn't respond.

It says my DVD is working properly but I cannot open the drive....I manually opened the drive and I can't close it without doing manually also. the light comes on but it is not responding.

check the dvd drive and see if there is any damaged on its plastics that may cause the issue. make sure the drive tray is not being stuck and nothing is preventing it from opening or closing. next, try to remove and reconnect its power and data cables. Using different cables if available may also help. if using the eject button works, but not through the OS, a possible reinstall of the driver, the firmware and even of the OS may be necessary. if all else fails, there is a chance that you may need to get a drive replacement.

You'll have to likely replace the entire DVD-ROM, which is a ***** to have to do. You'll need a 360 one-snap tool (which you can get from eBay, as well as certain other websites) to pop the case open. There's usually 4 screws that mount any DVD or CD ROM into a case.
If it's still under warranty, you can send it to Micosoft and have them charge you an ***-load to do either the exact same thing, or even worse, just replace it and not tell you.

CD tray not opeing

Perhaps it didn't fully latch so the CD drive doesn't think it's closed? Try opening and closing the door manually by straightening out a paperclip, then inserting it into the little hole in the front of the CD door. That should open it. Once open, close it and see if it will now open when you press the Open/Close button.

My Tray Door popped open after two red lights shut down console and won't close!

Here is a great page that has a step by step process for opening your unit. (they also sell parts and mod equipment)

You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
