It started last night with a weird buring noise while i was playing halo 3 and then the next morning i went to play but the disc drive kept on opening an closing by itself, it stopped but now all games are unreadable plz help
I had the same problem, was playing assassins creed and was 15 min into the game when i heard the burrrrrr sound like some vibrations, but the game kept playing and i turned it off right away. didnt start up the box until christmas day i got guitar hero, tried to start it up in front of family and got the same results as you did opening and closing and not able to read any disk. found out that warrenty was out got desparate and even thought of a switch a roo with a refundable new one.
anyways found the problem! theres a magnet that sits on the disk spinner that came off and was not able to grasp game right. just found out now and glued it back in place and now waiting for it to dry, yeah i was like hell yeah problem solved. the tricky part is taking it apart, go to ; http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/repairs.htm

Call nintendo, if there is something in the USB port in the back of the system then take it out, it could cause freezing with out disc. If all of your disc are not playing ( Unable to read disc please refer to the wii operation manual ) its a problem with the disc drive in the system, set up a repair.
i have the same problem. try adjusting the pots and clean the lens. i might work. in my case a games start working. but i have ordered a new laser lens online. still havn`t got it. i think that will solve the problem
Similar problem here. Worked fine last night. This morning...every disc put in gets you a "unplayable" response. Does play DVDs though. Weird. Called xbox and they are sending us a box for repair. This is the second time sending it in. We had the ring of death crap before and had to send it in. It was in repair when Halo 3 came out. My son was having fits not being able to play it.
xbox is not on the top of my list as being a good, reliable gaming system.
Not entirely sure but maybe the disk drive bricked, though I wouldn't replace it without looking into it more. But it would make sense consider the noises. Was there anything attached to the disc or was the disc damaged after this incident?
