    Today when I went to play my my Saturn the games wouldn't load. So I left the CD lid opon to see what was happening. The CD started to spin and load then it began to spin BACKWARDS! I turned off the machine and then back on again, the CD booted fine. However the characters were just large black blocks! Now when I try to play a game the CD spins for about 1/100th of a second and then gradually slow down until it's stoppped. During this proccess the lazer is moving in and out rapidy as if it is trying to focus. What can I do? Have I killed it by doing the swap trick?

    Ps I've also noticed that with a burned game the cd tries to spin but with an official game it make no effort :(

    open it up, remove the plugs from the appropiate connectors and replace them securly

    if it still doesnt work look for a new saturn, they arent that difficult to come accross and arent expensive either

    Use a 30lb sledgehammer to check if the drive works properly.

    If it isn't, then it's fucked.
