kenny, sounds like a bad laser in your drive. You can try and clean it, either with one of those commercial DVD cleaners that you can purchase at most department stores, or you will have to disassemble it and clean it with isopropyl alcohol. If that does not work, you can either replace the laser, or the drive. Just remember that the drive is mated to the Xbox, so you can not just replace it with a new one, but you will have to get the drivekey etc. Check on here to see which drive you have, and here are some instructions for 2 drives. Finally, on here you can find out how to replace the drive and flash it. Hope this helps, good luck.
