Grinding noise when playing Premier Manager 2008

I have just purchsed Premier Manager 2008. When playing the game two nights ago my console seemed to be making more noise than usual. Everytime it went to a different section or I saved the game it seemed to be making an awful grinding sound which I had never heard before. Also the game froze twice on me. I tried again last night and even though it did not freeze the grinding continued. I have never heard this noise when playing other games. Is it the console or could it be a duff disc?

Re: Grinding noise when playing Premier Manager 2008

If your not getting the same problem with other games and you have cleaned the laser lens then it's going to be down to a faulty disk. The store you purchased the game from should replace it for you or you can have it replaced by Zoo Digital but this involves sending the disk to them and can be time consuming.

Cutting off 2 mins into the game

That happens to me once in a while too. What you do, try taking the disk drive out and run it under hot water for about 20 seconds. Then, dry it thoroughly. Put it back in and it should work.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.

Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.

Not loading game

the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
