    Make sure that all the ribbon cables going to the spindle motor, laser and snake drive motor, and securely attached, a loose cable can soemtimes cause this problem.

    Sounds like a worn out laser.

    It could be a worn out laser, but its always best to check, I opened up my slimline once, and when I put it back together i left the ribbon cable going to the spindle motor half out, so it was doing the same thing, not reading any disk, spinning a bit, then stopping, i thought NOOOOO. LOL.
    Then i opened it, and had a look, and found that it was the ribbon cable.

    Oh yes for sure check it out! But I thought he said it still boots PS1 discs just fine, but not DVD-R's, the disc does just a little quarter turn. This is typical of a laser that is worn out. The DVD side sounds like it had gone but the CD side is still well enough to read the disc.
