Status code 30-80-00

Status Code 30-80-00 is usually an issue with your game disc, not your XBox. That is the good news.

Some XBox games are protected regionally. For example, if you buy a game in the United States and try to play it on a system that was purchased in Russia, the game will not work. Sometimes it won't read the disc (like it did for you), other times it will freeze up in-game.

I am not sure what your purchase history is, but if you purchased either the game or system online this is probably the issue.

Another potential issue is the disc just being faulty. It may not be scratched, but it could be defected in some other way.

My advice is to return the game disc, explain the problem, and get a new copy. Most retailers will accommodate you if you are polite. If they will not process the request, raise a fuss and call customer service.

XBOX 360 "Open Tray " message

Your CD/DVD drive has failed mechanically. Usually this is a physical problem where the disc is simply no longer in alignment with the laser. It does not necessarily mean something will make noise, and can be just one small part slightly bent or broken so the disk now moves freely top to bottom.

If you can do a warranty repair, you're set. But if you are no longer under warranty, you only have two options. you can try and replace the drive, which although odd shaped; I think is just a standard IDE drive, or you can shift the XBOX 90 degrees to Re-orient the box. In some cases this may let gravity hold in place what the internal mechanisms no longer are.

Insert game and it just says open tray

either the disc is ultimately scratched or your drive is malfunctioning.
To fix mine i just bang the xbox on the top and turn it off and back on.

My Xbox 360 wont read any games, CD's or DVD's

Its the Disk Drive, its not able to read it because something got in there and scratched the reader, or its just old and broke. but a new disk drive will fix the problem.
