    My xbox 360 disc drive symptoms:

    won't read original games anymore
    will read DVD movies
    makes a weird noise like wrr ... wrr ... wrr ... wrr
    if a put a game in the screen will just say "reading" and never stop trying to boot

    here is a link to a short video i made

    I am also considering replacing the drive. can i just buy a toshiba-samsung ts-h943 on ebay, plug it in and play?

    no the dvd roms are not plug n play....there could be a couple things, 1st i would do 2 fixes....do the laser tweak for hitachi drives....and also the laser spacer mod.....

    the mod is here for the spacer http://www.360mods.net/News/article/sid=71.html

    and the laser intensity adjustment here

    the second sound is your disc is hitting the edge of the tray. keep the console lying down.... if it still makes that sound then open the dvd rom up and take a look at where the disc is hitting the outer portion of the tray.

    fix the spinning issue 1st because if the game doesnt spin correctly the laser will not read the game because the game is jittering in the tray.

    then do the rubberband mod, then the laser tweak mod....happy hunting
