Console making a strange noise. Help would be much appreciated.

My Xbox 360 Elite console has been working fine for years, without a single problem. Then yesterday, I was watching a dvd and once I tried to eject the disk, the console made a very loud, buzzing like sound. Tried a few things to see what triggered the noise, and it seems to be whenever I start up my xbox, and whenever I try to eject a disk. 

I haven't used the console for gaming since in fear that it may damage my disks, or the console even further. Does anybody have any idea what this problem may be, or how I can resolve it?

Also, It makes the noise even when there isn't a disk in the disk drive.

This could be the beginning of the end of the disc drive in the console.

Did it sound like a mechanical grinding noise or electrical buzzing? If it's a grinding noise it's probably something not working right in the disc drive. If it's electrical sounding then it could be just about anything. In either case your only option would be to send it back to microsoft for a repair, as attempting to fix it yourself will void the warrenty.
