I have been having problems with my Xbox (Thompson) drive not being able to read discs. This is especially annoying since I just bought Ninja Gaiden and I get an error within minutes of playing... My options are: 1) Send it in to get repaired for $100.00. 2) Tell Microsoft I know it is a defective Thompson drive and see if they will fix it for free (I have read sometimes they do even if warranty is expired which it is). 3) Go to EB, get store credit and buy a new one with the Samsung drive. BTW, I do not want try to buy a drive off ebay... My Question is what is my best option? I think I might try 3. Has anyone tried option 2?
