Return it to the store it was purchased from and ask for a replacement. Tell them it's scratching discs. Knocking it over didn't help and certainly made matters worse, but there are some 360's out there that are notorious for this.

Otherwise you'll need to call Microsoft and debate it with them.

It says the disc is unreadable, but I just got it last Christmas and I got the game this Christmas and it is completely undamaged

If there are no visible scratches or cracks on the DVD, it could be a problem with the lens inside your 360. It either needs to be cleaned or it's defected. Information on cleaning the lens can be found here:

X box 360 keeps scratching my games horizontal ar vertical and game take ages to load

You can fix this but it involves dismantling the xbox and putting 4 blocks on the top of the inside of the drive, I would always recommender running your xbox horizontally and somewhere it won't get knocked on a solid surface with plenty of ventalation

Disc getting scratched

I've heard that when you put discs in the 360 and have the machine perpendicular to the ground, scratches sometimes occur. From my own personal experience, physically moving the 360 while playing a disc can sometimes cause scratches. I'd call 1-800-4-MYXBOX and ask them about it. Try their tech support and hopefully any fixes fall within your warranty or are easier than that. I'm sure that they'd be glad to help. Good luck!

Sorry but you need a new one. You should have deep scratches in your disk. And I bet you had the console standing up;

I have had my Xbox 360 console since christmas 2008. To date i have had 3 games damaged whilst running in the console. The games simply freeze. When i eject the discs, they have a perfect circular scratch...

Thats when the lens scratches the disc, tends to happen if xbox is moved while disc is running, it happened to me.

Try putting the xbox lying down or standing up to see if the problem changes.

My xbox 360 keeps puting scratches on my games

check to see if anything is obscuring the disc tray on opening and closing.
If there isnt check the disc make sure its smooth and flat no bumps and not bent

if there is noises like grinding when playing it may be a part inside causing this

i suggest calling xbox because i dought u want to risk doing this to other games.

please rate. thank you

X box 360 scratching discs

That is a very odd problem. Unless you have a special warranty, the unit will not get replaced for a new one until it cannot be fixed by a tech. You have to write or e-mail Microsofts contact in your manual and complain about the games getting destroyed by the Xbox. They may want to see copies of the receipts for the games too, but be very firm with them or they will not take you serious.
