    Ok I hope this happened to someone before because I'm ready to throw this console away! I have a Xbox 360, (not moded) never opened the inside and recently I have been getting this screen when I go to play a game (Xbox 360 game) and I have to open cd drive and close it a few times before the console accepts and lets me play my game.

    If you know of anything that may help please!

    They break very easy but to the same token can be repaired just as easy.

    the end result is eventually the drive will just comepletely stop working and you will need to get new drive altogether (WHICH WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY) if you still have a warranty you can send it back probably at a cost. Sending it in seems like short term fix, because they break a few months later.

    you can go online and get a new drive for about $20-$30-ish. Make sure you get the same model and the numbers match up.

    if you want to replace your drive hers some videos to show you exactly what to do.

    well even if he does have to fix the 360, he still saves money.

    Are you standing the console vertical or is it on its side horizontal? If its vertical, keep it horizontal as there have been known problems when reading discs this way. Before doing anything drastic, go out and get a can of compressed air and open the drive and blow out some dust. This can do wonders for disc read errors. Also make sure your discs are clean and free of scratches.

    If none of the above works, contact Microsoft and see if you're still under warranty. If not you can send it in for repair or do it yourself. Unless you're comfortable with opening one of these up and replacing a drive, I would send it in.
