Have had my box since launch. About 2 months ago I started having random cannot read disk errors. It has gotten so bad lately it wont play any game brand new used rentals whatever it wont play them. I bought one of those cheap lens cleaners with the crappy little brush on the bottom of the cd itself and this didnt do jack. I then decided since my warranty is up to take the sob apart. Did that cleaned the laser with alcohol put it back together and still the same schit. I am passed pizzed off now and was wondering if any of the addicts knows if I can buy a replacement rom and just stick it in there? If this is possible where the hell do I get one? I would just go out and buy another box but I have too much stuff on HD not just game saves but cd's I have borrowed and ripped to the HD . Any suggestions welcomed, XBA rocks.

Im sure you could get it replaced, but by who/where dunno...

Call MS and see what they can do , if anything.

As for saves/cds, with memory card you can at least save your game files, as for the rips...dunno.... borrow em again when you get new box or whatever?

You can call 1-800-4MY-Xbox and they could probably fix it for you, just giving you the number if you needed it. Also I like your sig looks like I'm not the only Sooner fan anymore.

You can get the drive and do it yourself, it's pretty easy.

Go to XBOX Repair (www.xboxrepair.com) :D

yeah, they'll probably fix it for free in less than one week, or atleast that's what they did with me:D
