Xbox 360 (original version) DVD disc reading sound

When I put in a DVD in my Xbox it instantly starts making a noise that sounds like the disc is rubbing against something, but when I play a game there is no sound. So it seems to just be DVDs. Is there anyone who knows what's goin on? Help! It's getting annoying ha

If your discs don't get damaged it may be an issue with your consoles DVD drive motor bearings.  The reason why it doesn't make the same sound when you play games is because game discs read much faster than DVD movie discs, which causes the discs to spin more.

That appalling noise is standard with the XBOX 360 I'm afraid. Rather clunky construction and cheap bearings. I gave up trying to watch TV through my 360 because of the noise.
