well you have two options. You can try one of those cd's with little brushes on them or you can follow this guide then remove the four screws holding the drive together and from here you can remove the top case and take a cotton swab with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on the tip and gently wipe the lens off.

Hope this helped,


P.S. The second way will void any warranty you may still have on your xbox.

also if you choose to open your xbox it would be a great time to blow the dust out of your xbox and give the inside a good cleaning.

Most likely your laser will not be dirty, they really don't get much of a chance to get dirty as the drive itself is a pretty contained environment. You will likely need to replace the laser instead.
