You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!
this is a problem the microsoft has been working on ... remove any disc from the tray> unplug it from all power the plug it back in> open the disc tray .. leave it open for a little while like 10-15 seconds .. then put the game in and it should work .. if it does not however you have one of the defected disc trays and you'll need to get it repaired by microsoft .. i know its not what you want to hear but hey at least they will fix it free of charge =]
Most probably YES. Your xbox doesn't detect the disc because the laser can't read it. Either it is damaged or the disc is dirty or scratched. Try several disks, and if the problem persists then you'll know for sure that it's the laser unit.

Whenever mine wouldn't read disks i'd hit it a few times on the top face (lower left side above dvd drive), then turn it back on to see if it would read it. Sometimes i had to do it 5-10 times... and eventually it worked again for a few months.....
if that doesn't work I'd Call xbox 360 support and see if they will fix it for free (they are fixing the 'flashing red lights" error for free right now... possibly your disc read error). if they refuse to fix it for free and you don't feel like paying...... wrap the damn thing in a towel and power it on (keep it in eyesight as you don't want the towel to catch fire)...do it for like 10min-30min whenever you geta chance.... eventually the processor will over heat (due to lack of airflow and you will have three flashing red lights when you turn it on... and your 360 won't work at all.... (and microsfot WILL FIX THAT PROBLEM FOR FREE... and hopefully fix your drive too ... wink wink)
... of course... .wrapping your 360 in a towel (known as the "towel trick" will harm your xbox more... and i'm not taking responsibility for what happens to you or your xbox) might not be the best idea.... but it may just get you a free repair =)
