It happens when the console is moved while the disk is still spinning. you need to wait until about 30 seconds AFTER you have turned the 360 off before moving it or this will happen. the disk wobbles and touches the plastic moulding inside the 360 dvd tray causing the ring.

ive allways had problems getting these repaired, gamestation do a disk cleaning service for £2.50 but ive found its only 50% successful and not guaranteed to work. you might want to contact Microsoft and explain your 360 is scratching your games and they might replace them free of charge (not guaranteed but my brother got his games replaced this way).

hope it helps you

Wii is scratching discs and unable to load


If there are kids around check if something is inside it. If there is and it is rubbing on the disk it will slow the disk so the console won't read it. It does kind of look like a coin slot.

MY GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 WONT PLAY IT KEEPS STOPING THE GAME AND TELLING ME 2 CLEAN THE GAME WITH ACLOTH THEN PLAY IT THERE IS KIND OF BIG SCRATCH ON IT BUT ITS NOT THAT BIG SHOULD I JUST BUY ANEW ONE


Hi,
you could buy a new game, but it,s worth trying this disk repair solution first. i,ve been repairing game-music cds/dvds for a couple of years, with 80% sucessful results.
1:) Find an empty jewel Case ( plastic cd holder case ) put the game-disk into the case upside down. ** Underside Facing Up**
2:) Take a soft-cloth ** Yellow Duster Type** and apply a small amount Of T-Cut Or Toothpaste. to the cloth.
3:) holding the disk with one hand, to stop it moving. use your other hand to work the cutting paste into the disk, around the scratched area. using light to medium pressure.
4:) once you,ve polished the area around the scratch, using a clean piece of soft cloth, buff to a polish.
5:) once the scratch has been removed, polish with a light solution of furniture polish, to fill in any surface inperfections.

If your in the UK, i can repair the disk for you.

Turns off disk


First of all, get some toothpaste and a soft rag, try cleaning the disk thouroughly, sometimes the scratches on the disk can be so small that they aren't too visible, with this cleaning, you can fill these tiny scratches and allow the disk to work perfectly. If this does not fix your problem, take a Q-tip and run it along the inside of the disk tray while open, if you brush the bottom very gently you can successfully clean the eye that reads your disks of any dust and or obstructions.

Hope this helps :)
