    so i have this dvd tray that for some reason wont open and its really starting to make me mad. i dont know why it wont open. i took the shell off of my 360 and the dvd drive. it has the gear in there and it spins fine, but it refuses to open. when i turn on my 360, the green center light flashes the whole time. what should i do to this thing? if the motor is burned out, (which might be the problem, but i dont know where it is on the drive to check) i have a second one in which i could replace it. so what should/can i do to fix it? thanks.

    When you hit the eject button, does it sound as if the drive is trying to eject? Or is there absolutely no response from the drive?

    it doesnt sound like its trying to open it. it just sits there. do you know a tut i could use to fix this? because it sounds to me like the motor is the problem.

    Nice info but one word of advice. Look into a program called ispell because you seriously need it. It gave me a headache trying to read that post.
