I have already determined that I need a new Xbox 360 dvd rom drive. The warranty on my 360 is already expired and I already opened the case. can I use any replacement Xbox 360 dvd rom or does it have to...


Yes this sounds like the lens unit has gone. You can replace the lens unit itself but not the whole DVD rom unit. This is because each Xbox console holds a special code that pertains to each DVD rom. So if you replace the whole drive you will find that the codes don't match and the Xbox will not allow you to use the drive.
There is however a little trick that you can use on the DVD drive. You have told me that you have already removed the drive from the Xbox itself so what you need to do is take apart the DVD drive, there should be 4 Philips screws on the underside of the drive. Remove the screws and take the top and bottom off to reveal the insides of the drive.
Look for a small white ribbon cable that leads from the lens unit to the PCB (printed circuit board) and disconnect the ribbon cable from the lens unit end NOT the PCB end and then you can take out just the lens unit.
The DVD drive is now ready for you to put in a new or used Xbox lens unit. Once you have your new lens unit just connect the ribbon cable, screw in the lens unit and put the drive back together. Pay particular attention to the connections to the Xbox motherboard making sure they are well seated when you reseat the drive itself. Before re-assembling the Xbox case and screws you can make sure the lens is reading by connecting all leads and power the console up. Pop a game in the drive and it should now read.

Good luck and please post back if there is anything else.

Xbox 360 will only read halo !!

That is an odd problem. It sounds like you maay need to change the laser or the dvd rom assembly if its reading only one game, yet all the games it wont read are working ok in another console. If i was you id simply replace the DVD rom drive, making sure its the same version as the original from the unit. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Bad Files, make sure you are logined into your account. there is a maintence part, on the xbox360.
with the new menu of xbox360 its hard to find that.

But you should be able to , unless it says online ONLY!
make sure you read the fine print of some games..

Good Luck

Freeze then red ring of death twice

it is definately a possibility that where you keep your Xbox is the problem. ive actually gone through 3 so far (thank god for the xbox return service)  on the latest one i moved it to on top of a speaker away from anything that gives off heat when in use (like your dvd player) and its outlived the other 2. good luck!
