I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.

My 360 will not play any disks, and makes a grinding sounds when the disk is inside. It's only 8 months old, and everything is stock.


If it makes grinding sounds while a disc is inside it, then it has probably got something to do with the motor spinning the disc. Something is either preventing it from spinning (excess dust can do this) or it's on it way to dying. Best bet is to call Microsoft and ask them for a repair order. With your X-box only being 8 months old, it should still be under warranty and therefor should cost you nothing to fix :)

Will not read games or movies


When the disc is in the 360, can you hear it spinning? If so, then most likely the lens needs to be cleaned. If you can't hear it spinning, then the motor in the disc drive may be bad and need replaced.

Just spins


This sounds like a samsung drive, the laser is probably dead or on its way out or it could also be the small belt that is stretched and to weak to shut the drive properly, either way the machine will need to be stripped down and repaired.

we can get this back to normal for you just email us at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

DVD Drive malfunction


Hi,

i cant see any real serious damage being caused by inserting 2 discs, however we are talking about the xbox 360 here and the disc drives have had many problems amungst all xbox versions.

Regardless of your warrenty the xbox repair center should fix your xbox free of charge for you providing you dont tell them that your son may of caused the problem. because whether he did or not, they will assume he did.

It could just be a coincidence this happened when the 2 discs were inserted or it could of actually caused the problem.

if you really want to try and fix this yourself, check the dvd drive and make sure that the spindles center and the top disc latching part are correctly alligned.

the top part should be loose and will move freely, the main lower spindle near the laser should not spin so freely and if you spin it you shoul dbe able to feel if it is firmly attached to the motor or not.

Hope This Helps

Disk wont spin?


If its still under warranty, and the seal hasn't been cracked, contact Microsoft.

Try what hijackthis1 suggested, if that doesn't fix it, try this.

Since you have the 360 apart, and the top cover off of the dvd drive, here we go...

There's a circular cut-out that's glued to the top cover that you removed from the dvd drive, right below the sticker with all of the drive information. I was able to pop out the cut-out. After that you now have (3) pieces in your hand, the cover, cut-out, and a plastic piece.

Connected the dvd drive back in the 360 with the top cover off.

Put a game or movie in the drive, don't hit the eject botton, just put the disc in the tray.

Now with the disc in the tray, put the plastic piece in the center of the disc. Its magnetic, so it should kind of lock in to place.

Connect the power/av cords in the 360 and turn her on.

You should see the disc try to spin. (It may spin once or a couple times around, but it will stop). When you see the disc start to spin, GENTLE, spin/turn the disc in the direction in wants to go. It should load the game or dvd with no problems.

Reassemble the cover and put back on the dvd drive.

Now use the eject botton, and try games and dvds.

If disc fails to spin, do process over again.

I've done this with one of my 360's with no problems.
The drive I used was an Hitachi 0059DJ.

PS2 Slim Disc not spinning


I had the same problam and i fixed it. Open your disk lid, and at the back on the right there's a small white bit touching the disk. You can push it back and it will spring forward again. Get a tiny bit of tape and stick it back but make sure there is no tape near where the disk will spin. Free and worked for me.
