Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Microsoft have changed the mould for the dvd trays (or the suppliers have changed them at least) so that on the latest editions of the 360 it does not scratch them as much as it used to. the previous person is right. what happens is that when the disc is being read from it will spin very very fast and one slight knock on the older 360's would produce a ring right around the 360. this happens when the game disc wobbles and touches the moulding on the dvd tray.
i would try not to move the console while its on, wait at least 30 seconds before moving the console after you turn it off.
if you have a wired pad this can make things worse as everything you pull the pad it can make the disc wobble and cause this problem.
a friend of min stopped this happening by getting a thin enough peice of soft foam and gluing it onto the tray so that when the discs did wobble they would skim the soft rubber and not the hard mouldings.
im also guessing its a samsung drive you have because the earlier ones were really bad for this.
hope it helps a bit.
