This is a design fault on the 360 itself. You need to make sure that the Xbox 360 is NOT moved while the machine is switched on. You need to make sure that the xbox is secure and connot move because of vibrations.
When it is moved the vibration of the move causes the disc to wobble and comes into contact with the drive plastic underneath which causes the ring round the game.

Xbox 360 Console: my xbox 360 game has a ring around...

Your disc was most likely laserburned. The xbox will do this if you run a disc for a long stretch, this problem may occur... To continue playing the game, you will need to obtain a good disc and install the game to your hardrive. You will then be able to play the game on your laserburned disc.

My xbox360 games has ring on it

If the game has a ring around the disc like a scratch you want to go to game stop and have them buff it out . How your games got scratch ring on them if u hit or if you move the 360 from horizonal to vertical while theres a game in the dvd drive it will make a loud buzz sound like a blender with no ice in it and thats what put a scratch ring in your games . you can a skipped disc fix from game stop its called skip disc fixer . its a pate that you put on the game and gently buff out the scratch . For heavy scratches that r deep you might want to buy the game used.

Scratches a ring around the game after long play time

The disc is spinning too close to the laser head. This is a common problem with people moving their consoles while the disc is spinning, but it can happen while it is stationary if the tray isn't keeping the disc at the proper distance from the laser.

You can install spacers. More detail on this process can be found here. They want to sell you foam spacers, but I'm sure you can find something around the house that can do the same thing.

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks

If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

It just wont work

If you have 3 red lights on the ring you have what they call RROD or red ring of death. Bottom right would be hardware failure.

DVD Drive failure most common problem, this ranges from dirty disk error (DDE) message to inoperable drive door, skipping in movies, slow load time or no load or the call customer service errors 10, 11, and 12. To replace the drive it will have to be reflashed.

Console moved while game was playing hence ring on disc and disc freezing any solution instead of throwing away

You have obviously damaged the disk. I think Gamestation or Game does a thing in store that can repair damaged disks but I think thats only scratched disks. It would be worth a try taking it in and trying to get it repaired.

Xbox360 putting ring around disc

This happens when the disc touches the laser lens when the console is moved while the game is in it playing. You can fix this by either buying a monster clean screen cleaner or just go to your local Gamestop or Gamecrazy and have them buff your disk. It happened to me a few times, i got it buffed and everything is brand new.
