I always find with consumer electronics a gentle bang (oops dropped it kinda thing) helps - and if not try swearing cold and calmly (like you really mean it) and if that fails threatening the thing often works, the amount of times I've threatened my PC with flying out of the window and hey presto :D

I had the same problem. So I unscrewed it and took the disc out manually...have to force it though as it's tight....I actually electrocuted myself and got a "Told you so" from the better half! :D

sound like to disk is jammed or not sitting in it recess properly, a gentle tap may , repeat, may cure the problem

heh... Lotus challenge :D I never had an Xbox, but I bought the game anyway... I was especially missing my esprit at that point in my life after an extended period in the shop as I recall... :P So I figured it was the next best thing.

Unfortunately it was a bit short of what I expected... In real life I don't think Loti flip whenever you make a level turn at 30mph :D

You had a lucky escape. Lotus Challenge on the PS2 is by Kuju and it sucks the sweat off a dead man's balls. The models are nice enough and there's plenty to choose from but the driving model is the most appalling thing I've ever had the misfortune to use.

Don't ever play it - it'll just make you sad.

If there was ever a time for asking no questions and just taking someones word for it ............. this is it! :)

I used to work at Kuju and they really aren't that good. I can honestly say it was the worst time of my career to date.

Well, there was that time in the ball-sucking department of the morgue...

The best lotus game of all time is the original Lotus Challenge I and II for the Amiga!

For me it would have to be Durell's Lotus Turbo Esprit that I had on the Spectrum. Good though the Lotus Challenge series was (4 player link up in Challenge 2 was particularly awesome), it was a pretty standard racing game. Durell's offering was more GTA3 in that it gave you a living, breathing city to hoon around in. And a gun to shoot bad guys with.
