mine was doing the same thing, so i decided to do what aww did.
he posted a site that shows you how to fix the dreaded disc read errors., i followed the directions on that site, and have yet to have any problems.
you may contact aww to get that site, i know its on one of these threads here in the game forums, but i dont know which one.
just read that you bailed on it and it doesnt work. you might be out of luck, i think once you open it on your own, you void the warranty.
