    the humming saound only means that your cables have a problem somewhere and what you need to do is maually check it. it may be also from your system but to check it, just do a call restart for that.

My xbox 360 makes this really loud buzzing sound or humming sound when I play certain games some games are fine they dont make a loud buzzing sound.

Its probably because you have the game in the wrong way. That happened to mine and i realized it was in backwards. So check that out and reply back. Also don't move your Xbox 360 with a game or DVD in it, it will get the game/ DVD scratched up.

Ilo DVDR05 Vibration and loud humming noise

i experienced that problem cause is the cd itself.there cd's that are too thick so the motor has hard time rotating that makes vibrating sound.the other ,don't put something over your unit.the cover is touching the holder of the cd and makes a sound.just do the necessary things to be done like don't put something on top your unit.if not, then a manual analysis of the tech is the last option.
