If so, then you need to check the remaining space on E: partition. If its less than around 800Mb, then you need to delete some music you have stored on it.
If you don't have a mod, it can still be a problem with insufficient space on E:. Unfortunately without a mod you can't really find out your free space on partition E:.
Do you think you may have copied around 5Gb's worth of music to your X-Box in total??? If you suspect so, then start deleting your music until games start to work.
The X-Box requires a minimum amount of hard drive space on E: partition for disk caching. If it doesn't find enough space, the X-Box will refuse to boot games or movies, but will it still read music CD's, as it doesn't need to cache that.
Regardless if you have a modchip fitted or not, the above applies to both scenarios.
If you've deleted heaps of music and it still refuses to play games, then ahero4heor's suggestion of replacing the ROM drive may be valid.
Please let us know how you get on.

You can see how much free space is on E via the memory card manager. Usually it says 50000+ free blocks (somewhere over 780mb spare space, as each block is 16kb).
The symptoms sound to me like a dying DVD drive. You could try some of the pot adjustment tutorials and see if they help.

Then can you explain to me when I get customers that complain that disks refuse to work due to them stuffing E: partition till thier's either no space or very little space left. And as soon as I free up space on E: partition games and movies start working again???

As for my console, E has ~200mb/15000 blocks free and works fine.
