Loud XBOX 360 S

I got an xbox 360 S because it advertised its quieter than the  older 360's ( the white ones). I've had it for  5 months ish and its been loud from day 1. The sound is comming from the disc drive jsut as the older ones did. you can hear them winding up and spinning. It doesnt make the noise when playing a game thats been downloaded to the hard drive jsut whie reading the disc. Is this normal for the 360 S's? I cant find any info  anywehre regarding excessive noise.

It's definitely quieter when playing installed games, as the disc in the tray doesn't need to spin the whole time. I would recommend installing all your games to your HDD (all at once, or one-by-one) to help with the noise.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
