Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Please be specific as to what happens when you enter a game into the console, make sure the disc is clean.
You can purchase a new DVD drive for this console for around 20-50$ from ebay for example, the drive will need to be spoofed to match the Id of the existing drive so the console thinks the same drive is still in the xbox(they are paired, another drive will not work with another console unless the id matches)
This is a advanced procedure and the drive will need to be removed from the xbox and connected to a computer with a sata chipset made by VIA to perform a firmware update on the drive.
Or you can send this off to Microsoft to another repairer.
but first please be specific as to what happens with the console when the game is inserted, does this happen with all games, how about DVD movies?

This would be consistant with a bad optical drive more often then not that is what is going on, I recommend www.videogamerepair.com for the fix because they just know what there going. The new drive is going to chime in about $120 from your wallet along with any labor that was produced. So you might want to consider the AGE, and the play time it has had before you decide to fork up the dinero.
A new system I am talking a basic is like $199 you can take you hard drive off the old put it on the new and its just as if you had the old system but working and with a warranty. Or you can bust out the bux.
Ether way here repair or replace is on your plate. Please do be considerate and leave postive ratings and feedback you answer WAS FREE!
