minus the sarcasm, likely you have a bad servo. Common in playstations, xboxes, and cheap cd-roms / cd mechanisms.

Does it sound like it's spinning up, slowing down, and spinning back up?

Could be a case of poorly burnt CD-R, or discs with open sessions.

I knoe this doesn't help but I truthfully have only heard one good sounding Sony headunit. Time to upgrade unless you really want to keep it.

Not that I know of, but then again I have only heard on of them. Look at a cheaper Pioneer or JVC. I know Pioneer makes a good-value headunit for $99.99, which is sold almost anywhere that carries headunits.
