    Hello all, I have a question. I have a ps3 who's optical drive is wobbling making a strange noise when a disc is inserted. I have disassemble the unit and the drive and when the disc starts to spin, it appears to be out of balance? I have tried a few different disks and they all do it. Is this the motor that is causing this or the top magnet not seating correctly? Anyone else ever deal with this?

    Here is a youtube video of the effect I am referring to.
