Grinding noise I had my cd500 fixed in November. The little piece that holds the cd in came off. They fixed that, but then when I got it back I was still getting format errors. They gave it back and told me to only use mavica discs. And since then that is what I've been doing. However I am still hearing a loud grinding noise when the picture is being burned. Do you know what it is? I am wondering if I need to take it back in.
