I recently purchased and installed my new push button fliptop it worked great but there was always a scratching noise when the disc would speed up. Upon further inspection I realized that the metal tension hinge for the filptop was scratching the tops of all my discs. It was either do something or damage every disc I put in my machins so I removed the tension hinge and it stopped scratching my discs. My problem now is that the back-ups work everytime no problem but the thicker originals seem to make a loud noise and spin out of control causing crashes and freezing during game intros and FMVs. The backups I am using are noticably thinner than the original game discs so I think the weight has something do with my problem but do you all have any suggestions on how to fix this nigthmare???All back-ups no originals ARG!!!!
