Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Your laser may be dirty or the laser may be bad. If you hear the disc spin up and you can also hear the laser moving, then it is definitely the laser. If cleaning the laser fails, then you can either replace the laser or the drive. I prefer to change the entire drive. You can find one on EBAY for around $20. You have to get the exact same disc drive that you have in the console originally.The most important thing is the drive key that is located in the original drive. What this key does is store information and firmware. This key replaces the one in the new drive. If it isn't replaced, then your drive will not work.(and be banned) The key installed in the new drive makes the console recognize the new drive as the original. Do this while not connected to LIVE to ensure you have the key installed correctly and your drive is reading properly before you go on LIVE. Once reading discs, and everything checks out OK you can then go on LIVE.(with no worry on getting banned) There are a few tutorials on youtube for this fix. Keep in mind if you have a BENQ drive, replacing the key is a little trickier.(which you can also find on youtube for the BENQ drive) If you want to replace the laser get the one for your drive on EBAY and find the tutorial on EBAY. Either way is a fairly inexpensive fix. I hope this helps you.

Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the
bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or
image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your
console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by
the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft,
clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.
· Note Use ONLY water to
clean the disc.
Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your
console and see if the disc plays.
