    anybody come across this problem with the 'shitbox' :

    when tray closes or when xbox starts you get 2 loud clicks and then can spend anything up to an hour trying different games, cds or dvds to get it to catch and play.

    Yes, I am that sad and obsessive that I will open and close tray until it works.

    Kip I had that problem on mine. The key is to smack the xbox while it is laying down above the disc tray when it is closing. Not a hard smack but more or a love tap, open palm, that should get the tray closed.

    nahhh sadly i promised ex i wouldn't mod her gifts. we still hang and play em so i'd rather pay for my games and avoid the arguments. i like owning my games anyway, it makes my shelf look nicer.

    You wanna show your Xbox who daddy is without causing too much pain. :p

    But in all seriousness that's what I had to do when it wouldn't close.

    just kidding hammer!

    it does close no problems but I get 2 clicks when it is closed, I assume it is trying to read the disc.

    we then have a situation that I open it and close until:
    a. it reads the disc and away we go
    b. i swap dvds, cds and other games until it starts reading them.

    I wondered if it was the laser cover: maybe some grit on it and this blocks it from reading the disc.

    Am going to check out xbox head cleaners

    My disc drive won't stay shut. It closes and then re-opens. i've discovered that a magnet has come loose and needs to be re-glued. I don't feel like opening the box, so I call to get a free repair.

    My warranty has been expired for five whole days and these motherfuckers are giving me shit about getting a free repair. XBL customer for three years, over 25 games and they're dragging their feet over a hundred bucks. Fuckin' assholes.

    I swear if the PS3 had games I'd get rid of this shitbrick in an instant.
