    when i put the game in, it tries to read the game and then says "open tray"

    if i put the game in and tap the top of the xbox a few times, it will kick in and start spinning and reading the disc.

    any suggestions other than telling me to get a new xbox?

    Sorry shiv, since there is no reset on them that I am aware of the only suggestion I have is to call tech support.

    That's bad news, brutha. It's happened to me a few times.

    From my experience, this is the early sign of the "red ring of death."

    Eventually, it will stop playing games all together. You'll have to send it back to Microsoft for repairs. I've sent mine back three times over the years.

    Sorry. :(

    Just wait, unless it is new, the new xBox should be coming out soon.

    I'm on my 4th Xbox and it does sound like early red ring of death....if its just that one game its just scratched...take it to a local cd repair shop....i usually take it to some dude at my local swap meet and he buffers the disc to remove the scratches...hope this helps....
