Hey mate, this is a common problem with the original Xbox, due to their old age. Its due to a rubber belt in the disk dive stretching or braking. You can either fix the disk driver, by obtaining a new belt, or replacing the disk drive.

This tear down will show you how to open up your Xbox;

and these links will tell you in detail how to fix the disc driver, if you wish to;

I had this same issue and i fixed it.

But it is a rubber belt that needs to be cleaned.

Use a paperclip to Manually reject. You will see a small pulley and a bigger one in the middle gap of the cd tray.

Use tweeters to take the belt out.

Use a damp paper towel to clean any dust/dirt from the small rubber belt.

Then carefully put the rubber belt back on.

Turn the system on...

This has fixed 2 system for me.
