Well,

I was inside the 360 as I have a clear case and by accident leaned on the dvd drive (disc in) suddenly it went silent (almost) I though crap.

Well what happened is magnet on dvd drive was pushed down, so I figure hmm seemed to still work.

Well so I tried something got a tiny piece of plastic to push the magnet down slightly more than normal and now the drive is silent and had no game issues.

I have a clear dvd drive mod by way so no housing on top.

All is silent and barely can hear it as i've got the whisper fans too. I hope i'm not screwing with its life or anything. unsure.gif

"Sounds" nice! wink.gif

I just realized the other day that the loudest sound coming from my system is when the DVD Drive runs... I wonder if what you did is the "good way" to solve this! wink.gif

Update us now and then to know if it's still ok!

The problem with posting a pic is the case is so flumsy,

If you look where the dvd drive is I superglued a piece of plastic to the case directly underneath where the magnet is pushed down, just enough to be like pressing your finger to it.
This picture was from when I first put it together but you can get the idea.

Still works perfect and loading/performance still good, not had 1 single disc reading error and played for hrs

Either that or a good way to screw up the laser, it is too early for me to tell yet. But I have not yet heard the disc move, except the obvious when the mechanism is moving the laser up and down but still quiet.
