xbox is fine (and quiet) otherwise.  Only owned it a couple of days.  I am not sure if I should do anything about it.  What do you guys think?

That's not a healthy noise for a disc drive to be making - as it's new, the best fix is to take it back, explain the problem and request a replacement.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

I have done further testing and this noise has only occurred with some of my games, not all of them...  So far, it happens with Halo wars, Gears of wars 3 Fable 3 and Final Fantasy 13 and only on startup... every other use of the disc drive (installing reading etc, seems fine)... If I recall correctly this happened with my first 360 (20GB pro, 2006 - 2009 (RROD)) as well from 2 months after I bought it until it died... my last white 360 (arcade model with HDMI port), which still works, was perfectly fine.

I would prefer not to return it, but I will if it gets worse (happening on all uses of the drive).
