Alright so I've had my Xbox 360 for the past 7/6 years and it hasn't given me any major problems til date. Right now none of my game discs are being read, and this seems to be happening with every other disc except my REALLY scratched Halo: Reach. It doesn't seem to want to read any of my discs even though most of them dont have a single scratch on them. The tray also seems to get stuck shut, but only when I don't have a disc in.
The thing that concerns me the most is that when I put the discs in to try and load them, my Xbox will make a horrible grinding noise that sounds like its scratching the disc. When I take it out and look at it, it seems fine. Its sound like the motor is having trouble or the laser isn't reading the disc, but I cant be sure. I also read that it might be the magnet isn't catching and isn't holding the disc in properly. Again, not sure. I just want to know if anyone else has, or had, the same problem. I have been told just to get a new Xbox, but I really don't want to give up my Xbox if I can do something to save it. I'm attached to my fossil of an Xbox and would hate to see it stop working yet. I'm going through gaming withdrawl and dying with my Xbox. Help would be very much appreciated. Thanks. <3
