XBOX only reads disks when the disk drive is upside down :S

Hi guys... So my xbox is only playing games when i have rotated the DVD drive and even when it plays it gets to a certain point then stops and the xbox does not respond in no way just the frozen game remains on screen dashboard doesn't pop up... When the drive is placed normally it won't read and either says in dashboard open tray or DVD media ???? The games I am running are in decent condition some perfect but all to the same avail any help would be great thanks

Brother...your console is broken.  Time for a $100 repair order.  Do not attempt a self-repair or allow any computer store to work on it.  Call MS and fork out the money.  If you try either of  these methods, you stand a high chance of getting your console banned from Live forever.

It sounds like the dbd drive is dying by the way.

I agree that your console will likely need repair, but be sure to check these steps first.

If that guide doesn't resolve the issue, you'll want to check your warranty status and set up the repair here
