This is a pretty common problem in the 360 and sometimes it will act a little crazy with errors like "please put into a 360 console", or it thinks games are dvds and just says "play dvd" after putting a game in. This is usually caused from the laser which is either dying out not getting enough power. You can either fix it yourself which will void the warranty, or send it in to get fixed which will cost around $100 for a new drive.
first open up the dvd drive and clean it good, including the laser. Then try the dvd drive POT Tweak
if you decide to get a new laser, then click here for instructions on how to install it properlly.
If you don't want to get a new laser or do the pot tweak, you can get a replacement drive on ebay or somewhere. It must match the key stored on the motherboard, so you would need to taked the pcb board out of the old drive and put it into the new one for the keys to match.
