    :(

    Not the typical RRoD though. A couple weeks ago the DVD drive (LiteOn) would only close half-way every now and then like it was physically stuck. I dunno, I messed with it and it would work again, did this maybe 5 times then the other day I put a disc in there and it spun super crazy fast. I ejected it and the disc was still spinning and almost took off across the room. :rofl:.

    Well it did that one more time randomly then last night I was playing and all the sudden the game froze. I rebooted and now all it does it spin up really fast an then get an open tray message. It will not read anything. Pressed DVD/Burned DVD/CD's/ nothing. It almost seemed like a f/w issue cause whenever I eject the disc it does not stop it first, it just spits it out as it's spinning. I flashed it to 1.51 and a fresh 1.6 and both do the same thing. I opened the drive and the laser moves and lights up an everything. I cleaned the laser too but no go. This thing is only like 4 months old too.

    Anyone have a spare drive to buy? I see them on eBay for ~$20 shipped so I'll pay that to someone here instead if they have one.

    plus I played off the HDD pretty much every game I played so it's not like the drive was worked hard at all. Probably played a few hours total off a disc.

    Hopefully it's jst the DVD Drive and an easy fix. I even tweak the laser pot and it didn't do a damn thing.

    Protip: you only make yourself look stupid when you try to compare 360's hardware favorably or equally to PS3's. Youre even better off just shouting NO GAEMS or something.

    Just sayin

    :ugh:

    Protip: Understand wtf you're talking about.

    .

    I think that is one of the areas where the PS3 fails more than the 360. (not surprising as the 360 uses old tried and tested DVD drives)

    Sent it to Sony.

    There's a pattern though.

    First, YLOD, then Bluray drive dead, then YLOD again, and last console stops working.

    Wtf can you even read? We're talking about a DRIVE failure not a general hardware failure :uh:

    Nobody is disputing the Xbox 360 failure rate moron.

    Leave this shit in the flame/troll/fanboy thread.

    If you aren't posting something relatively constructive then don't post.

    A drive failure or any other failure is part of the issue/post you responded to, moron. You're just cherry picking and generally being an idiot. If you thought his post was irrelevant maybe you shouldn't have responded to it.

    ChuckNades posted that 360s aren't worth buying because their drives fail.
    I posted that PS3 drives fail too, more so than 360. So it's irrelevant.

    Then you jumped in with the usual fanboy 'my console is better than yours' crap.
    And yea, there's a thread for that so out.

    Reading isn't your strong suit is it?
    Says nothing about drives. Your hole is getting deeper by the post. Not posting would help your cause.
