I have this issue that the DVD drive unit wont eject after a period of time. I noticed the problem 1st started when I was playing a DVD movie and it was just skips, shutters, and just stop playing the movie altogether. I rebooted the XBox and tried to eject the movie out, the DVD drive didnt eject. Decided to leave it alone for the night and I booted up the XBOX the following day and was able to eject. For a moment I thought it was a fluke. But after trying to watch another movie the same scenario happened. I can reboot the XBox with no issues I just cant get the DVD drive ejected. On the dashboard I noticed that the DVD Drive info reads "OPEN" when I press the eject button it would say "Ejecting" but it wont eject at all.
The only thing I can think of is the temps inside the XBox. The CPU temp goes about 140 and the MB goes about 120. Tried that termal compound mod - http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/thermal-compound.php - and its still get pretty hot in there.
Can it be anything else though? Thanks for any help you can provide.
