Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
A big one
Sometimes, it's rare but CD/DVD/Blu-ray/Game Discs will oxidize much faster than normal causing a ring on the bottom if you look at it and the disc will no longer be able to be read. Usually this is due to a manufacturing defect of the disc such as if the lacquer coating on the top was not sealed properly on all the edges in the factory. Usually CD/DVD-R discs will oxidize in about 10 years or so but for commercial discs usually it takes much much longer as the manufacturing process is of higher quality.

SOURCE: big rings on the disc
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. They 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.
You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.
Hope this Helps!!!
