    I've ran into that with my daughters 360 and also again just tonight when I was at my nephews playing on their 360. What I've found is that the motor which drives the gears to open and close the tray uses a "rubber band" as a drive belt. That rubber band loosens up just enough to slip.

    If you take open the front panel (just do a search on how to do this... it is not difficult and you can do it with your bare hands), there is an small manual eject button (a small hole that is slightly bigger than the diameter of a paper clip). You will need to put a paper clip in it, push firmly and the DVD drive will unlock just enough for you to manually open the drive.

    Just out of interest, is it just stuck or do you see any lights as well (eg, mine was stuck and I got a green flashing light on the power button).

    Hope you can get your halo out.

    Hey guy's thanks alot for the help. I think it is that rubber band thing becase when i tap the DVD drive it opens and when dont it stays closed.

    I'll try that paper clip thing later tonight when i have time to check it out.

    Again thanks alot guy's, And i do hope that i get HALO 3 out.

    Good looking out, Peace OUT!
