    I inherited a 360 that has an "open tray" error. Doesn't matter what game I put in, it'll try to read it for about 3 seconds, and then just says "open tray" as if it doesn't even see the game in there. I had never looked into moding xboxes before, but I was under the impression that I'd need a custom dvd drive in the box itself. I've since learned that I don't, I just need a new dvd burner for my computer. Is there any chance that my broken dvd tray would read burned games any better than stock games, or am I out of luck here?

    This sounds more like a dead laser, check what drive you have and buy one off ebay, they are cheap, and switching them is easy. Also if your drive isn't flashed with a special firmware it won't read burned games at all.
