Miffed My X-box died!!!

AHHHHHH!!! Well its simple really, this would be the 5th Xbox I've had (I've had 2 replaced by the shops and Microsoft have repaired my current one 3 times!) and each time its always been more or less the same problem..... the CD/DVD ROM drive.

To get a game to work, I need to boot up either an audio CD or the DVD lens cleaner for about 5 mins and if I'm lucky it'll work, but now its starting to work less and less.

Microsoft refuse to repair it because its out of warranty, even though its bust due to the poor design and manufacturing of the machine.
I know 3 other people experiencing the same problem with their drives as me.

I was really wondering wether anyone else has had this problem and knows how to remedy it?

Cheers guys!

make that 4 people!

Mine's been acting like this for a while now too. I got my damn X-box off e-bay though. So I don't know what Microsoft will be able to do to help me.

I think replacing the box would be easier and probably just as cheap

Scar - I already own one.

Link- Don't tell microsoft that you got it off e-bay, just ring em up, tell em you've had it 9 months or something, and if it hasn't been registered they should do it for free. (By the way, check the underside of your X-Box, it tells you the year it was made on the bottom, if it says 2002 or 2003 you SHOULD be okay)

mine was from the 1st shipment of x-boxes to come out in the US. I doubt the warranty would cover it still...

No offence....but are you keeping your X-box in a proper and adequate place? I have my X-box for more than two years and never had problems. Maybe a few bugs, but never had it repair. I'm currently in the process of modding mine. If I messed up is my fault.

Get a dust cover. The most common problem with machines left out in the open air is dust in the mechanisms. I've never had an Xbox, but my PS2 is coughing up blood right now. **gets two electros and sticks them to either side of machine and shouts CLEAR**

FLATLINE..........

A dust cover, that's my suggestion.

What the f**k?

PS2's are crap bud. Everyone of my friends has had some sort of problem with their playstations.

Besides that, the system itself sucks. If not for the Final Fantasy series...it would be a complete waste of money.

dont get into a console war here guys. were just talking about x-box breakage and what 2 do.

i was thinking about this and this makes sense 2 me.

microsoft has the most powerful console in terms of graphics, but because the company is so new to the genre with consoles, their not as high quality when it comes to maintanence like say nintendo's gamecube.(which i store right above my x=box and i havent had a single trouble with since i bought it at christmas during the console lauch. i have an original gamecube from first launch, no problems ever. ) microsoft's first lauch crashed, froze, gave a blue screen, locked up with the game inside it and had to be shipped away for maintanance. simply being new and not having the same expertise in quality has really hurt micro soft
