My xbox DVD drive just "clicks" instead of spinning... I am assuming it is shot.  Anyone know if you can just replace the drive, or is it just easier to buy a new one?

I used to do a lot of fixing up of xbox 360s until they became so cheap that people just buy new ones.  The clicking is most likely the metal shim thingy inside the drive that has come unglued.  Here's an entertaining youtube video that may help you if this is your problem and you like to fix things.

Thanks,
 
I took it apart and it was the dvd drive.  The magnetic piece wasn't messed up but the sliding piece was stuck with hair and dust.  It combined with the lubricant and gummed shit up...
