either your dvd tray drive motor is dead or stuck, or the main reason is that the laser may be dirty or dead. cleaning the laser with alcohol or nail polish remover and a cotton swab sometimes fixes the problem. if not then a new dvd drive is needed. it has to be the excact same model. switch out the pcb boards and it should work perfectly. you need to switch out the boards because the dvd drive that is currently in your system is coded specifically to you 360's motherboard, so switching out the dvd drive alone won't fix the problem, now all this assuming your 360 didn't work after cleaning the laser and inspecting the motor for obstructions.

the dvd or game could be stuck. try turning the console upside down and eject the tray. or try tilting it to the sides and eject it. if all else fails then you might want to open it up and manualy eject it because its a pc dvd drive so you can pop the xbox tray guard off and stick a paperclick in the hole and push into the mech to pop the tray out to retreave the dvd

My disc wont spin in my drive

hi i have had and fixed this problem pemenently!!

u need to take apart your xbox and remove the dvd drive:

then you need to crack open the dvd drive

once open if you look at the top part of the drive that would hold your game/disc youl notice that it is infact two pieces that are magnetinc and they will be stuck together

what you need to do is seperate them

then take the smaller piece and locate where it has come from

this is the centre on the dvd drive like on the pc where you would push the game on to

you need to super glue the small piece back into positon

reassemble let dry and it will now be working..

i no its hard to understanmd what ive written hear but this is a really easy fix...

Listen to your dvd drive to see if it spins up or not when you put the disk in. If it does spin normally then you will be need a replacement laser.

If it does not spin correctly. The motor is stuck, sometimes if you open out the tray and stick something into the drive and give it a spin it will free the drive.

Xbox 360 dvd problem

bad dvd drive
try this
I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.

The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
