That happens when the case to your DVD (the top portion of your case) becomes warped. Believe it or not your Xbox generates alot of heat; enough to warp metal. Open up you 360 and push down firmly on the center of the drive case this should work. But be careful to much pressure and the case and the drive door will not open.

XBOX 360 Makes Grinding noise..


how old is it? that noise is coming from the cd drive it is probably on its way out or is full of dust and dirt, you can clean it yourself but you probably wont be able to fix as they are extremely difficult to work with and you cant just by a new drive as they have special code that link them to the xbox its in if you remove it and put a new one in you will only be able to play dvd as it will not recognise games because the code wont be there

When I put my game in the xbox 360 it makes a grinding noise and will not load.


This could be a magnet issue, on top of the dvd drive motor there is a magnet that can become detatched, the dvd drive needs to be stripped down and the magnet glued back on, this is usually the case if its a grinding noise.
Hope this helps.

My disc was chomped


Sometimes that just happends when the XBox is moved or touched after you put in the game. You need to have it resurfaced professionally. Most video rental stores can resurface games. I do not suggest a Disc Doctor. They will make the disk worse, not better.

My 360 plays all games except this one


Check if your new cd has an uneven surface , like it's bent . Is the grinding noise occuring for all the other games ?, if yes you should check your Xbox's CD reader head .
