SOURCE: Xbox 360 disc drive
if it isnt the magnet issue (hitachi drive only) then the solution is the drive isnt spinning the disc, in which case open the console, open the drive top, and hand spin your disc on the spindle for about a minute or so, make sure you push the laser block to the back of the drive, and when you power it up it should spin.

hey, open up your xbox if it isnt under warrenty, if you cnopen the dvd drive, look to see on the underside, of the top metal case, if there is a little round magnet stuck there, if so you need to superglue that to the center of your dvd drive moter, smooth side up. it should fit very nicely. slap it back together and whalla

SOURCE: Open tray error on xbox 360
Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps
