Default HD DVD drive problems...

I'll post here since the Xbox forums don't seem to be much help (my thread has been stuck in mod-approval hell for quite some time), so I'd figure maybe one of you chaps could help.

My 360 HD DVD drive makes a rattling/buzzing noise when in use, but it appears to only do this for certain discs. Pirates 2 gets the noise, but my HD discs and most of my old DVDs do not. I'm wondering if this is perhaps the fault of the drive itself, and I should exchange it, or if something else is going on.

If it helps, the drive was a return, but the Best Buy rep promised me it was fine.

have you checked if Pirates 2 makes noises in another player? Also, is the weight on the disc distributed evenly? (ie. debris on the disc)

Yeah, I tried it on my upscaling Toshiba, no noise. I ended up taking back the player.

yea, it very well could have been the player but more odd that it just did it what the disc. If it had done it with more then one, for sure I would blame the drive.

Regardless though, I would have returned it and gotten a new one
