Here's a link to a site that gives a lot of details about how to repair the DVD drive on your xbox. http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/xbox_dvd_repair.htm Sometimes all it takes is to clean the dust off the lens and mirror. This site offers a tutorial on how to do that. However, before you take your xbox apart and void any warranty I recommend you go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/default.aspx. This is the Microsoft support web site. You can determine if your xbox is still under warranty. If it is I recommend having Microsoft do the repair.

It's doesn't recognize this as a valid 360 game , this is often
one of the symptoms of the laser unable to jump to higher
brightness in order to read duel layer games . This can
be fixed by installing a new laser . The laser cost 20.00-30.00
and their not hard to install if you want to save some money.
Or you can have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00.
if you need more info ,ask.

This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this may happen:
1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.
2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:
3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.
