Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
This is most likely caused by a faulty dvd drive. I just recently replaced one in one of my 360's. Keep in mind if you open the xbox you will not only void the warrenty but microsoft will never repair it and then your on your own.there are two possible solutions to the problem.
1) open the console and remove the dvd drive and replace it with a new one. If you coose to do this you will have to make sure you get the exact same dvd drive or you will run into problems. I had a samsung ts-h943 and bought a new one for $32 at PC Direct. You can also find these on ebay. There are also philips or benQ drives. Which ever it may be buy the exact same one. You will need to flash the new drive with the key from the old drive. Each drive has a "key'' or serial number that the mother board match up with. If you don't want to or don't know how to retrieve the key and flash the drive you can do what I did and open both the new drive and the old drive and swap out the com board. This looks like a mini mother board and makes the drive and the mother board communiciate to each other and be able to play games. If the drive isn't either flashed or com board swapped out the drive will not play games only dvd's
2) If you want to leave your console closed to avoid the warrenty being voided you can turn it into xbox has a RROD and they will issue you a referbished console.
If you found this helpful and need further instructions on how to swap the drive your self let me know.
