The first one that won't read discs - that's an easy fix if you know what to do. Replacement of the spindle motor or the laser.
The second one with the chain code error. That one has had a flashed drive. So it has semi illegal firmware added to it. The new games that Microsoft puts out, the updates on them - look for Modded Ware. If it detects them - then it boxes the drive.
Games like MW3 are sending alot of flashed console into errorville. If those people didn't update their firmware.
So you have to find someone who flashes drives. With that one, they have to flash it back to stock and maybe re-flash it once again with a newer version.

So I can simply reflash the dvd drive to factory specs and it will work? I read that swapping in an unmodded dvd drive will allow it to finish the update is there any truth to that?

all he has to do with the error code one is find the specific update it crashed on and run it from usb, try all the update files u can get from teh program updatespy.
The particular error code ending in c000 0001 says to call microsoft on their website.
