My samsung drive always seems to make a nasty grinding sound when the disc is spining down.It doesnt really scratch the disc but sometimes it does make marks on the disk.I wonder how i can fix it with some foam pad on the cage or just some simple cleaning.I used to have my 360 standing up but had to put it laying down when the grinding got worst and freezing got more frequent.
All I can tell you is be careful.
My sammy began having the same problem and gradually worsened, and finally crapped out completely.
Suddenly didn't play ANY original/backup/movie. This all happened within a couple of months.
Dumbfoundingly, no one seems to know the answer. Apparently no experienced modder has ever experienced this grinding or even knows what it is.
I've searched the board thoroughly and still haven't seen even one person clearly identify the problem. http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?sea...e=4&order=1
A lot of these grinding-sammy posts don't even have a single reply. Those that do, most aren't informative or helpful. Surprising since it's a huge problem.
