    My Xbox 360 kept giving me problems while i was playing some burned games, i.e. it froze up at random points, gave disc unreadable errors, etc. I took the DVD drive apart and cleaned it with rubbing alchohol 60% with a q-tip. Now, it just doesn't read my burned games anymore, i get open tray after it attempts to load the game. However, it reads my real games such as Elder Scrolls IV......just not anymore burned games, even those which never ever gave me problems. So uh....what the hell do I do now?!

    What kind of drive do you have? Try reflashing, or buy a new drive.

    ok, just tried without the cover on, and im concerned. The laser turns on, but uh....when the disc goes in to be read, it looks like the laser is moving up and down while the disc is spinning and looks as if its scratching the disc some, i found some minor scratch marks on the disc when i took it off....uh so wtf?

    Grinding discs with or without the lid on the DVD drive? I know that when you have the lid off, that the disc is quite loose, and usually slips off as the system tries to read the disc, scratching it.

    Hitachi lasers are very picky, i've seen loads over the years that will read originals but won't read backups. Buy a new laser would be my advice.
