    I have a Xbox 360 that I was going to sell. Upon testing it the Samsung drive wont open. It open or trys to open then makes a weird noise and does not open.

    I opened the drive up, and it still wont eject. It barely moves when the eject button is pressed.


    What can be concluded from this? How can I fix it?

    Mine does the same thing, you can try taking out the little black rubber band and cleaning it in warm water. That worked for me for a few days. Now i have to either keep it laid on its side or i have to slap the top of it.

    Probably just because the motor, you can try and change it out

    You can try to do what Xpargas said. Or you can just buy a new belt for it. I forgot where to buy them. But i think i got the site from scar so might want to ask him.

    Would the band from a Samsung MS25 drive work?

    I have a console with a broken tray and its a Samsung MS25 drive.

    I really want it to be a permanent fix because I am selling it this weekend, and I want it to work lol.

    I don't know if this is an official conclusion, but when that happened to me I got RROD within the next week. Like I had the EXACT same problem. A week later, RROD.
