I guess Get Out is just a... piece in a jigsaw puzzle... a missing piece.


ok, i've got an older unit, bought in early 2006 (read: out of warranty) and the disk drive is starting to crap out on me. it doesn't always eject, and it doesn't always read a disk right away. to play a movie or game, i have to hit eject a bunch of times till it actually ejects the trey, then i load the disk. it will inevitably send the disk right back out 3 or 4 times before it actually reads the thing, and i can play a game.

so, i've been thinking of having it fixed, but now that the "arcade" 360 is so cheap i think i'll just buy another one. i already have the component cables, and hard drive, so buying the 199 version would net me an extra controller, and a memory card (plus the older box could be set up in my bedroom as it still technically works, it's just kind of a pain).

my question is this, if i were to get it fixed, who does the best job, at a reasonable price? am i better off just buying a new box for 199 and letting the old one die a natural death? and please god tell me that the new disk drives read quieter than my old one! this thing sounds like a blackhawk trying to land on an aircraft carrier.

its actually called a "xbox" if you are having sex with the disk drive that is probably the cause of your problem

This was a good thread idea. Sorry, I lied, this was a horrible thread idea

For best results when pressing button, use your finger rather than your dick. It'll come quicker.

Buy a new one. I know not of your location nor of your available resources, but I seriously doubt that anyone will be willing to fix it for a reasonable price. As for the noise of the drive, no, it won't read any quieter. IIRC (someone could probably confirm this) the sound is the rotation of the disk in the drive, not an internal component.

Hm... yeah. I'm just gonna draw a penis.

Do you have it vertical? My disk drive always took multiple tries to eject when it was. Now it's horizontal, it comes out on the first try. No idea why that worked.

I beg to disagree, you'll come quicker with a dick than a finger.

it used to be vertical, and it was worse that way.. after i moved it to horizontal, the disk loads quicker, but i still have to open/eject a few times before it'll read the disk. i guess the damage is done.

as someone else said, fixing it is probably more trouble than it's worth, but i was really hoping the new 360's ran quieter than mine.

If the noise bothers you that much, you can download your games to your hard drive and play them all silent-like. Other than that I can't say anything that hasn't been said about this thread numerous times.

did you mean to make this thread in YCS then ninja edited in a serious question when you realised you hosed up or something

If you're honestly asking this then find out how much MS will charge to repair the drive. If it's like $150 like it was for one friend of mine then just buy a new arcade. Hell probably just do that anyway if you can afford it, you'll get better quality and a HDMI port too.

Dispose of it. The xbox probably resents you for hiding it for so long, it will try to kamikazi and blow up causing horrible injuries to you.
