You probably plugged the DVD drive power cord in backwards. Its a common mistake made by people. Open it up again and unplug it and make sure its in properly.

i just took the DVD drive out as one i ddint open the drive so i ddont think i did. when i put a disc in it spins, reads it for 5 seconds, and says open tray like theres nothin in there.
Well you may have to adjust the pot, but I would suggest something like cleaning the eye with some good ol' Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol, 90% would be the best) and a Q-tip first. As your dvd eye maybe be dirty, nicotine build up, etc.

But heres the a link to the Pot calibration guide just in case.
