I have x360 with hitachi dvd drive. I played a lot with it, but one day it stopped reading all discs.
When I throw in a game, dvd movie, cd or anything else in my dvd drive it just wont read it (doesn't spin, nothing happens), it doesnt display any error messages. So i connected it to my pc via sata. Everything went fine, drive was detected and I even succesfully dumped firmware.
Maybe a new laser will solve my problem ?

Finally I made it read discs. But half of my games gets "Unreadable disc" error.

Have a read here first, see if the Spindle motor is your problem, page 2 has instructions on how to remove it if ya need.

A POT tweak may also be tried if the Spindle motor is in good shape and spins freely. If the POT tweak does nothing a new laser may be needed.
