I just got my 360 and last night got my first game in the mail. I was a little disturbed at the amount of noise the DVD drive produced as it was reading the disk, definitely more than my Xbox used to, is this normal?

Is there a way to transfer games to the hard drive to preserve the DVD drive?

One more, is there a way to transfer from playing a game to the 360 interface screen without ejecting the game?

There are ways of lessening the noise but it voids your warranty

It loud, that is normal. There is no way to transfer a full game to the hard drive. You can download many things from X-Box live to the hard drive though. Yes there is a way to access interface screen(Dashboard) without ejecting your game. Press the large X button in the middle of the controller, hit Y for XBOX DASHBOARD and then say YES to it exiting your game session. Hope this helps.
