    Is there a disk in there jammed? Or maybe the drive is dead or dying. You'll have to open up the system and remove optical drive in order or retrieve a disk and/or open it.

    sounds bad
    call 1-800-4MY-XBOX
    even if you get the disc out yourself, it'll probably have to be repaired

    if its under warranty, your best bet would be to let microsoft take care of it and still maintain your warranty.

    Is it xbox or xbox 360?

    If is xbox 360 the front face wil come off and there will be a tiny hole where the rom unit is and you can use a pin to pop it open like a PC rom unit usually has.

    If is a XBOX first gen .. then you will need to open the unit up to get access to the rom unit.

    Find someone offering to 'mod' it, and they're the same ones that could open it up and maybe repair it. However, you can an Xbox for around $50 nowadays.

    put a post up looking for a drive or get one from ebay or something, i'll put it in for free. if it's already modded just get a pc dvd drive (won't play store bought games that way though, only backups)
