Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The green center light flashes when the drive is inaccessible for reading.
You open or close the tray
The drive is disconnected
The drive is totally burnt out
The most likely cause of this problem is that the cable somehow came loose that connects the DVD drive to the motherboard. Carefully take apart the box, and reseat the cable. If the cable was NOT loose, you may need a new drive.

This could be the drive belt slipping, there are guides on youtube on how to change/clean this without voiding your warranty,
or it is a worn motor issue, when the motor becomes worn it cannot disengage the magnet, a way to check if this is the problem is to lay your console flat, turn it on, when it says open tray give it a firm rap with your knuckles a few times about where the center of the disk will be, if the draw opens its a motor fault, if you want to play the game and the game won't load, give it a rap in the same place until it does.
If this is the problem your console will need opening and the motor/drive will need replacing.
If this works, don't forget to thumbs up, to help others.
