I've had similar problems and I got myself a CD lens cleaner.

Its a cd/dvd sized disc that has a few small bristle on it so when u put it into your drive, it spins and cleans the lens.

They are pretty cheap and you can get them in any electrical store and I've seen them in a few supermarkets.

Also check that your disc's are clean too.

It only plays Normal Xbox games


The open tray and unplayable disc is because the lens isn't strong on the drive and needs to have a Pot calibration done to it to make the lens signal stronger. That should fix the open tray/unplayable disc issue. I have done this to quite a few drives and all have been working fine since.

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC My xbox 360 keeps reading unplayable discs but if i sit there long enough and keep turning it on and off, it will work. But after doing it for half an hour it gets really...


Sounds like the laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive if it has to read it a few times before it might see the discs.

The laser is inside of the dvd drive and it looks like this:

Depending on the manufacturer of the drive will depend on the laser you will need to get.

You could also take a can of air in the meantime and blow some into the drive to make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser as this could cause that message as well.

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC


Most of the time when your Xbox 360 says "Unplayable Disc" it's because the disc is unknown or it can read the label of the disc(the ring in the middle on the silver side). I cant provide anymore imformation due to your post. Be more specific.

Wont play Games


It sounds like your drive has died. You will need to purchase a replacement from Microsoft or a licensed dealer. You can't replace with a generic drive as the Xbox uses proprietary firmware on them.
