Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It sounds like the console's reader scratched your disc. This can occur when moving the console while it is on, the disc can slip off and get heavily scratched.
I would try grabbing a blank (unimportant) cd or disc and place it in the disc tray, then turning on the console to see if the console is scratching the disc.
Also, be sure to have the console FLAT on the ground, NOT vertical. This can greatly decrease any chance of the console scratching your discs.
I personally have had my XBOX wreck 3 different game's now due to just tapping or nudging the console. I took my wrecked games to a local used game shop like GameStop where they will take the disc from you and allow a discounted price (usually around $10) for a replacement used game.
There is not much you can do about the wrecked disc. You can attempt to have the disc resurfaced (local video rental shops can do this). Microsoft does have a disc replacement program however it takes weeks to have the game returned, and they only allow certain games to be replaced. More information on that can be found here:
Hope this helps!
