    My Xbox 360's dvd drive refuses to read any disc. It spins the disc a couple of times then says the drive is empty.

    How do I figure out what is wrong with it? Is it better to just buy a new one and transfer whatever digital thing I need
    to transfer to the new one for it to work?

    Model Number: DG-16D2S

    What is your brand of media? That can play a role too. If all of your previously working discs don't work then it probably is your drive.

    If retail games aren't working, then yes, you will probably have to replace it. Have you tried cleaning the lens?

    To replace the drive you'll have to spoof your key from the old one onto another.
