Some of the discs I put into the xbox 360 won't even attempt to read just goes right to "Open Tray" Any suggestions?

I usually just keep restarting my 360 until it works. Sometimes it takes 10-15 restarts. Every once in a while I just have to leave my 360 alone for a few hours and come back to it later.

It's an initial sign of DVD drive failure - or it's just really dirty / dusty inside - as the lense can't detect the presence of a disc

Try a lense-cleaning kit, or send it to MS for repair (mine came back with a new DVD drive)

If it's out of warranty you can try opening it up and cleaning it yourself, or replacing the lense, at your own risk of course...

Oh yeah and I forgot to mention, once you start getting these open tray errors somewhat frequently, immediately install every game you play and don't play any games unless they are installed. I started getting the open tray errors frequently sometime last year and I immediately installed everything I played and from there on out I only play installed games. Since then, I've gotten the open error maybe 2 or 3 times, so very infrequent. It really helps a lot.
