Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It might actually be cheaper to order a new drive on ebay. The Benq has this problem almost always. So the best option is to replace the drive. Less maintenance, and less risk of breaking the drive. Best option without a doubt. Unless you are on a short budget, it's best to just replace it with a new one.

It sounds like a samsung drive, they are more likely to have this sort of error. it could be either the laser that is on the way out or that the little drive belt has streched or weakened. either way its repairable and we can help you do this, if you want to try yourself i can point you in the right direction for some guides. we also do the repair via our website at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
if the drive belt is the problem, you can buy a 19mm drive belt from maplins.com and they are just the right size for the job. simply take the drive apart and make sure the tray is out, the drive belt is underneath near the top and can be removed with a small screwdriver etc.
the laser can be repaired by installing a new one from ebay OR in some cases it can be cured by adjusting the 'pots' i do have a guide for this if needed.
