Title:

How do I fix my drop damage disk drive?

Text:

I was carrying my wife's clothes in from the car and inside the box I also had my xbone. The box broke and everything fell to the ground, my Xbox hit the wall. Lucky for me everything still works other than the disk drive. I opened it all up and found that a tiny little white piece in the drive that controls how the laser moves along a ridge had lost its spring, I went ahead and busted open an old laptop ripped out the disk drive, found the spring and replaced it. Now instead of not working at all it gives me an error that all the disks i put in aren't xbox, dvd, or bluray. What could the problem be now?

EDIT 5/26/16:
I'll try checking the laser tonight and get back to you guys. I did plug it back in with it all the way to the middle thinking it would auto align itself back to where it should be, and that was the opposite of where it was when I first opened it. Hopefully it's that easy, because i have a baby and bills to pay for so spending even 50$ on a new DD isn't a priority for me.
