Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Woke up this morning and found our xbox would not play any game i own and is making a grating noise when trying to read it. the xbox 360 is only 4 months old and has been flashed with 1.6 firmware 3 months ago. cananyone tell me what is wrong with it and what i can do.?
A number of possible things could be wrong. The xbox360, if has been laying on its side could of overheated and the electrical components could of melted. This is common and in the manual it is advised you stand it up. Second reason could be the update, try reinstalling the update, this way its back to its default since you installed it.

No why would reinstalling updates fix this problem? It is a physical problem not software. It sounds as though your dvdrom drive itself is going bad. If you still haven't been able to fix it yet. My company fixes those things and more.http://cnktech.net/ give us a call or email us.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like the xbox console needs the laser adjusted or secured as per the other comments. For any discs issues, read on.
Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs.Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is; if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.
For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:
Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.
If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the disc is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.
Hope this Helps!!
