Take the covers off the console and remove the disc by hand. The following site gives some basic instruction on removing the covers:

Basically all you need to do is remove the rubber feet and then remove the screws (you will need torx sizes 20, 15 and 10).

Use a T10 torx driver to remove a small screw from the black divider between the cd and hard drives. Lift the hard drive upwards & out of the unit.

Use T10 torx driver to remove the 2 small screws located next to the cd drive - near the front on either side of the front of the drive

Remove the DVD drive and remove it's metal outer case. Now it depends on which drive is in your machine ( i think there about 6 different ones) as to how it comes apart. They are fairly easy to assess how to get the covers off. Once off you will be able to get at the mechanism to remove the stuck disc.

Disk drive door stuck, won't close.

if your warranty is already voided then you could try openning up your xbox and then openning up your dvd drive and just see what its getting jammed up against

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 Tray Door popped open after two red lights shut down console and won't close!

Here is a great page that has a step by step process for opening your unit. (they also sell parts and mod equipment)

You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Is it making a sound when you press the open button like it is trying to open but won't... if so press the open button and when it tries to open, push in and up slightly and it should pop open. keep inh mind this could be tricky and take quite a few attempts it happens with my Xbox all the time.
Good luck!

Disc tray stuck closed

Is it making the noise like it will open then getting stuck? If so, this can be tricky! It happens with me sometimes. Press the open button and as it goes to try and open push the disc tray in slightly and up and it should pop open, it does with me anyway.

Disc door sticking

send it back. microsoft is giving customers a 3 year extra warranty on the units. unless you did something to it, send it back. if you did something to it, you may need to clean it, oil it and make sure it is not getting stuck. if not, then get it repaired, but I am sure you can solve this without having to buy a new disk drive.
