I would call 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them the problems youre having with what is a relatively new machine.
Xbox realized that the consoles were peppered with problems like this and extended the warranty from one year to three.

Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating. They did not extend the warranty to any other issues. DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.
You can try a factory reset of the console...
Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.
Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.
Press the following key combination
Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X
This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.
If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty. If not they will repair it for usually 99.00

Your DVD tray may be misaligned. Call 1-800-4my-xbox to see if your box is under warranty. Something else to consider is if you had the game in the console and moved it with the game inserted. This results in a misaligned disc and when it spins up for loading it scratches perfect circles into the disc.

You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.
