    Anyone else had this problem? After a while, my 360 will make a kind of grinding noise, you hear the disk sound like it's stopped spinning, and then the game will come up with an error message saying the disk cannot be read.

    I would hazard a guess at a drive fault. Sounds like a phone call to ms?

    Mine does this, I fear its the dvd drive on its way out. I'm not usre if this is covered by the extended warranty that MS issued, as I think this just covers three red lights?
