This is actually kind of hard to fix.If its under warranty they can fix it. Basically if you cant open and close it a few times and get it to work you have to replace the xbox dvd drive. But first youd have to figure out exactly what drive it has there is 4 types of dvd drive. you would have to replace it with exactly what was in there. Sometimes even if you get the same dvd drive the drive wont have the same firmware. There are things you have to do like flash the dvd drive. But if its done wrong it can result in you being banned from xbox live. As people mod there dvd drives to cheat or use pirated games on xbox live. It can even result in the console being banned and no longer being able to use xbox live. If this isnt a problem you can fix it by following the guide outlined on xbox 360 hq by clicking this link

No red ring but discs not working


Check your discs are clean, if they are buy a laser head cleaner and put that in, if that does not help then it could be a couple of things, one is that the xbox is prone to dropping a magnet out of the DVD drive spindle that caused all sorts of problems, it will eject the disc for you when this happens(Probably) it could be that the Laser has given up, check your warranty and send *** back to Microsoft if you can.

My xbox 360 won't read any games. my games are all new(no damage) and my xbox360(purchased in Feb. '09) has never been damaged. Other than the fact that I can't play anything in the drive tray, the rest of...


Well if you bought it in Feb. of this year I would just send it into M$. If the problem you are having is that it says "Open Tray" after putting a game in, means the calibration on the drive isn't strong enough to read the games and needs tweaked. M$ will fix it for free if the system is still under the 1 year warranty.

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.

HAWX open tray


If it says "reading" you just have to wait. H.A.W.X. is a big game.
If it says "open tray" you have to close the tray :)

Unless, Check the CD for scratches and marks, or else try the CD on another Xbox 360 console.
