Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My sons' xbox 360 60gb is 3 wks old and has already rendered 2 fifa '09 discs unuseable. Game, the shop i bought it from will not refund the discs as they believe it to be our fault. what do we do now?
A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “ring of death marks”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any scratches or laser burn on discs. XBOX laser burn discs can be fixed!!!

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.
If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair. Check your garauntee and contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.
Hope this Helps!!!

Was the console tipped or move while game was in dvd rom? if so this is do to the laser assembly on hitachi dvd rom device. if console just started eatting disk for no reason check on the warranty and get drive replaced. as for the CD if scratchs didn't pit the lacquer coating to extremely bad you should be able to buff them out.
