Hey all, I just had the wierdest occurence with my X-Box and don't know what to make of it. I was watching Tv with my X-Box running because I was waiting to get online with a friend. The box had been sitting there for 15 minutes idle with no play when it all of the sudden it began making this horrible scratching sound from within it. I ran over to it freaking out thinking "WTF!!" I tried ejecting the disc and it would not eject so I powered off and repowered on and the same noise started and the light around the eject/open tray button went from the green to red and instead of the normal screen you would get I got a message saying "contact X-Box" support. I managed to get my game out, and when the disc came out the tray was vibrating and shaking like a epileptic and I heard that horrible noise going. I immediatly called support and just got off the phone with them, they do not believe it is the X-Box but rather the game (MM3) which I don't believe because I've had the game for a month with repeated playings and no problem. They made me turn the machine over to get my serial # which seemed to help the problem because while on the phone I tested some games with them to see if they work and they all worked with only a slight stall and that noise when trying Midtown. The X-Box tech seems to think it is the game because it had that slight stall and made that noise when testing discs out after the fact, I disagree though because the game has worked fine for a month and it wouldn't cause the disc tray to not eject or shake like an epileptic when it actually comes out. I think my drive is going bad and turning the box over to get the serial # did something to help. Any ideas what is going on here? unfortunately it is out of warranty so repairing it willl cost me $99, hopefully it ain't broke. Any ideas? thanks.
