I would defenetly take it back to the store becase it can be a problem with the dvd drive. if this is the case it will keep scratching the games.

Xbox360 seems to be scratching discs


Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. 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 professional disc repair services is normally rerquired to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

For further help on Xbox & Xbox 360 laser burn disc repairs or to get discs professionally repaired, visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie

You can send your discs off to this Disc Repair Service and the discs shall be sent back as good as new.


If this is happening consistently without any knocks or movement of the console, I would contact Microsoft for advice on your games console.

Xbox not working


I am not 100% sure, but you may need to connect to xbox live or the internet and update it. I don't personally own an xbox 360, but I have heard my friends talking about this and how to fix it. Not a guarunteed solution, but you may consider it.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

Scratching disks


The reason for this is you got the crappy Xbox 360 Arcade and it has been known to do that, especially when you move the console while it's on and you're playing it.

Xbox 360 scratched disk


Hi

If the xbox is under warranty ( Microsoft has extended coverage on those) , have Microsoft fix it.
If it's older , you'll need to find a service that fixes 360s
If the case seal is broken Microsoft wont cover any warranty issues
