Ok for the past few weeks my 360 has been pissing me off. I mean... first it scratched Battlefield: Bad Company... without the system ever being moved (it had no scratches before the system was moved). Now I just bought a new game, no it was not scratched. However now the 360 is saying "Open Tray" even though the game is inside the console. Believe me its not the game, because I tried two games and it did the same thing. Grrr...

You call that a rant? Anyways, try unplugging the console from the TV and power source and remove all storage units. Leave it like that for a few minutes and plug everything back in and try it again.

Dude just clean the disk. Wipe it with your t shirt or something and then put it in the 360. Simple as.

Do what TRF said and if it doesn't work then you have DRE; which I doubt you could figure out how to fix yourself which means you'd need to send it to Microsoft.

Probably. But I think the warranty is up. So either two options, get a new 360 and give my current one to my brother, or just get a PS3.

It's always kinda boggled me when people get a PS3 after their 360 breaks because that's hundreds of dollars wasted in Live and gam--well that wouldn't apply to you would it? You said you didn't even have the money to buy the sequel to one of your greatest games of all time so I suggest you look up a how to fix it yourself tutorial on google or youtube instead of getting a new one. It's not that hard and since it's broken and out of warranty you're really not risking much.

Of course that would not apply to me. Wink Oh and about the people buying PS3's when their 360's break. Well yeah they do for a number of reasons. Not to mention the power cord is broke so if I try to take it out of the system the cord will break. So I am pretty much in a bad position, though the new 360 Slim probably fixes those hardware problems.
