Hey, I've had an Xecuter 2.6 in my 1.5 box for over a year now...I've gotten my fair share of "disk dirty or damage" errors but usually it works great. Just today I tried booting it, XBox /EvoX logo comes up, and the (DVD drive?) makes this "pinging" noise every ten seconds or so. Pings for about a minute and a half, then frags, and I get that multilingual "your Xbox needs servicing" screen.
Is this a common problem? I was thinking about replacing the DVD drive with a Samsung (it currently has one of the crappier ones, like a Philips or something). Do you think this would fix my problem?
