Playstation 2 related problems

Our PS2 started giving us the Disk Read Error (DRE) and the clicking grinding noise (with blue disks) which prompted me to search the web for help. The email chain prior to this new forum had good info and I wanted to add to it. I thought maybe the noise was caused by the disk sliping, like it needs more friction where the spindle contacts it, so I made a ring from adhesive label paper (inside diameter about 3/4", outside diameter about 1") and stuck it on the blue side. To my surprise it worked and the game started up normally (and quietly)! Good luck to any/all who try this.
My ps2 grinds and cliks to any game I put in it, and when it start cliking, the music in the game stops, especially on hitman contracts and WWE here comes the pain.
