    well, i will restrain from laughing. You actually followed some guys instructions to stick a butter knife in your Xbox??? And why would you need to stop the disc anyway?

    I am sure prying it open has really messed up your drawer. You may want to look online at some torrent sites for an Xbox repair guide.
    Lots of drawers have pegs and such that lock and unlock the draw (allowing you to open it manually). Not sure if Xbox does or not. But if those are in the wrong position it can cause all sorts or problems. Also they are on a track, if they get off track it causes problems as well.

    In conclusion, it is not a smart idea to stick a butter knife in your DVD drawer. Worst case would be that you would have to replace the drive which is a pretty easy job really.
