    When playing this game my disc drive seems to go into orbit (and stays there!). The noise is really quite intrusive. Anyone else got this, or do I have a faulty disc?? Just finished playing Bioshock, and the disc noise was minimal - same with Oblivion - Mass Effect (at least for me) is very noisy....:confused::confused:

    My 360 seems to dislike my Mass Effect disk... 3 times now it's scratched it causing Dirty Disk Errors. I'd blame the drive but it hasn't marked any of my other games.

    I know why they dont (those poor Core owners), but games of this size should really make better use of the hard drive.

    Can't say I really noticed any excessive noise when I played this... But I have my speakers that loud anyways I probally wouldn't have heard if there was :D

    It's fairly noisy yeh, the main problem i have is it takes a good 5 attempts to get the game running as it says the disc is dirty or it's not even a 360 game disc even though it's completely pristine.
