  1. same happened to me, first one or two games, then more and more. Made a loud whizzing sound and black screen saying read error, this is the drive motor, cost me $100 to replace, fixed problem.
  2. i don't think it the drive mooter i think the lens might be out of sync because i just tested a few other games out and found out that it just doesn't want to read dual layer.?

    whitch motor was it ,THEIRS THREE !
  4. not sure, but would not read Super Mario galaxy and Wii Sports at first, then all games would not load, made loud noise when game disc inserted and then it would load, you would choose it, the game screen would load then when you clicked start the black screen would come up and say disc error, please insert "****" game disc and that's all it would do with every game, the company said they changed the "drive motor for disc reading" and since then had no problems with any games and no more noise. (My son was playing 6 hours a day everyday for over a year before it died)
