Time for a new drive. If you check online or the previously pointed out question, it is possible just not as a straight switch. Good Luck.

It seems like you aren't using the original drive. Xbox 360 drives are "Married" to the console that they originaly came with, and replacing the whole drive will leave you unable to play Xbox 360 game disks. In order to fix this, you need to either fix the original drive using parts from a drive of the same model, or "re-marry" the drives, which is much more complicated. Either way, you need the original drive.

The drive laser may be getting weak. Luckily you can disassemble the unit and adjust the strength. You need to be careful, as the tolerable values vary based on what type of drive you have. What XBox 360 do you have and what kind of drive is installed?

I had the same problem, not reading games but reading music and dvds.

I found a good fix here How to reflash? DVD

I swapped my old circuit board and all is working perfectly.
