Xbox 360 Disc Drive Making Loud Noise

I got an Xbox 360 two years ago, and it has recently, when I play a game, on startup the disc drive will be VERY loud, then it will quiet down a bit, then it will get VERY loud again. I'm not sure why, but I don't really want to open it up. I don't think it has a warranty left on it either. My console is an Xbox 360 slim.

When you put the disc in, instead of pressing A to play, there's an option to install the disc (I think it's the Y button now but it'll be listed at the bottom of the screen). You'll still hear the disc drive spin up when you first start a game, but that's just to verify that you have the disc in the drive. You shouldn't hear it anymore after that.

It might help if you install your disc-based games to the hard drive. This will prevent the need for the disc drive to spin up and should reduce the noise you hear.
