If you have your xbox standing up then you want to lay it down, i had this problem if you move your xbox when there is a disk in it, it will make a sound and scratch the disk. the best thing to do is to lay it down on a surface such as a table not the floor, if it still scratches your disks go into the place you got the game from and say your xbox scratched t and wont work anymore, they should give you a new game. if you tried this and it still does it then the best thing to do is to ring up microsoft for repair.

My cdrom makes noise when i insert dvd


What type of noise does it make? If you hear the tray close and then the disc "spin" for a minute or so, that is normal. If it sounds like something is shaking or rattling or lasts more than 5 minutes, there is probably something wrong.

If it is an extended spin noise, the drive isn't recognizing the disc. Check if there are scratches and try another disc. If you hear a shaking or rattling, do not use the drive. It's probably better to replace the drive (check if it is under warranty - usually 1 year). This drive has an IDE connection. You will need to check your motherboard specifications to identify if you can replace the drive with a SATA optical drive (more common now) or if you need to find an IDE drive. (Note: OEM drives do not ship with the data cables or software discs, this will matter if you get a SATA drive.)

Some optical drives have a problem with the magnet that holds the disc for the laser to hold it. Some people fix this problem with duct tape; at <$20 for a SATA DVD-RW OEM drive, it isn't worth my time to fix.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment describing your sound and the computer you have for additional help.

When 'riding" or when 'pedaling'. The only moving parts are the wheels and the drivetrain. The chain can be rubbing somewhere. Narrow it down for us by observing.

Most bikes aneed a tune-up after the initial break-in to account for shifter and brake cables stretching.

Disc wont play, when starting up player sounds like its running then gives cant read disc error


it could be one of 2 things, either ur laser is on its way out or the motor in the dvd drive has run out of lubricant. the latter is quite obvious as the drive will be noisy when spinning!!!, if ur tech savvy and are capable of doing so, remove the drive from the xbox and open up the drive casing, the motor is situated under where the disc sits on the little black disc. there are 3 screws holding the motor in place, remove them and with gentle pressure pull the black section from the motor, clean thoroughly then place a couple of drops of wd40 or 3 in 1 oil onto the shaft. re-assemble and that should solve the problem..

MY SONS XBOX 360 HAS SCRATCHED HIS NEW GAME BUT NOT THE OTHERS, WHY IS THAT?


Most likely the Xbox was moved while the disc was spinning. The disc drive does not "lock" a disc in place, so any movement will cause the disc to move out of alignment and scratch the disc. Sadly, Microsoft will not fix the faulty drives.

Xbox scratches my disks


The solution is the Optical drive starting to Fail, as this is a defect in the unit, it is only covered under warranty. What is happening is that when you reach certain points in the games the system buffers the data from the disc into the system memory and when it buffers all the information it powers down the Optical drive causing the disc to spin down abruptly without letting the laser seat back into the housing properly. causing the disc ring of death. One of two solutions is to resurface the disc or replace the Optical drive.But By searching the internet you can find an inexpensive replacement.

Loud noises


Depending on the age of the system, replace or ignore.
Its your DVD drive, unfortunatly most drives are noisy -FACT- so sometimes you have to just live with it- check the back ,if manfactured in 2005 ( a lot of bad drives from this year) might be worth ringing microsoft to see if an exchange is possible.-
But if its not showing any loss of play/loading or scratching the discs - or showing error- please place disc in a xbox 360 console...You may just have to put up with it.
