Xbox 360 freezing up

I don't know if the system is scratching up my cd's or if they're just getting scratched on their own somehow but two of my games are freezing up now when I play them and are now unplayable. is this a disc problem or a hardware problem and how can I solve it? any suggestions would be appreciated.

I bought my xbox360 when it first came out. Im guessing you have your 360 standing up, there is a piece inside the drive that scratches the disk and ruins the game. Microsoft just extended the warranty on the 360 recently, I would send it back to get your drive replaced. However, I don't know what to tell you about your games, but they are probably ruined, I'd ask Microsoft about that too. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/warrantyupdate.htm?WT.svl=nav There is the link - Good luck

I put my game in the xbox then it made lik a scratching sound then I took my game out and it was scratched how do I fix a scratched game??


The scratch was probably a ring around the CD, right?

You can try a resurfacer on it, a GOOD one, not one of the 10 or 15 dollar things. This sometimes fixes the problem, but not always. If it doesn't, then your going to have to replace the game :( Sorry.

As to why it did this. Often this is caused by the system being bumped in some way while the game is spinning in your console. Sometimes if the system gets bumped it pops something loose to the point that it no longer needs to get bumped to cause this ring scratch on the CD. Only way to get this fixed (without voiding your warrenty) is to contact microsoft and ask them about repairing it. If you ARE still under warrenty, they might even replace the game for you.

How To Fix A Scratched CD,DVD,Rom,Disk ect


Some time you get a disk that gets scratched and you cant play it, it could be a disk for anything such as a video game system or a dvd. There are many myths to get the scratches out like flushing it in the toilet ( it does clean it).

To remove the scratches you need to resurgace the disk, pretty much scratch a layer of it off. You can purchause a disk resurfacer from places like walmart for about 20 dollars but also some game stores and most stores that sell used cds can do it to.

NBA 07 wont work


It sounds as though there may be a scratch on the cd. There is a cd scratch fixer product at most computer and places that sell the games like EB games. This should clear up the problem I have had this same issue with different games though.

Removing scratches on my game cds


This is an all to often problem. I have had the same problem with my [music] CD's that have skipped tracks. There are many commercial disk cleaners on the market that will get the job done, though since gamecube disks are smaller than typical CD's, you might have to find a special kind of disk cleaner.
Though, you should know that these cleaners will typically only remove surface scratches, and that any deep scratches that may have made data unreadable can not, and will not be fixed.
Here is the typical disk cleaner, at a modest price.
And here is a specific game disk cleaner, at a much higher price.

Scratched disk


hi, this is a common problem with all video games consoles that take cd and the same for music cds.
Most people throw them out when they get scratced and start jumping or in your case wont load the game.
The good news is you can buy a cd polishing kit which polishes the scratches out of the disk.

How it works is you place the cd into a like similar to a cd box but it has three sanding wheels then when you put the disk in you then turn a small handle and the three polishing pads spin round and polish the scratches out of the cd getting the disk to work again.

The problem is finding some where that sells them i know Maplin stock them and sells them but if you have trouble finding anywhere that sells them then the best thing to do is type in in your browser "cd scratch remover" then this will list a load of sites that sell this product.
Its not expensive to buy and its well worth getting one as you can use it loads of times so if in the future you have more problems with scratches then its worth getting one.

Hope this is the help you was looking for i know they work as i use one myself for my ps2 and music cds that get scratched.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any questions.

On any cd the bottom part that the laser reads doesnt have the information and the data on it it is burned into the top part so as you look at a cd and where the writing is on top of the cd if this is scratched and you can see through the disk then it cant be repaired but if its the bottom part that the laser reads from then removing the scratches will solve your problem.
The scratches cause the laser to miss that bit of data thats under the scratch so polishing these out will be the same as having a new cd.

Grinding noise, ps2 scratching disks and freezing.


Thats the lazer head getting too close to the dvd's, means that it either needs proper cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaning disk and solution, or needs to be replaced.

Game Cube will not read disks. Please help!


you can clean the disks using tap water and then drying with soft cloth have you tried a lense cleaner to clean the laser on the cube get a good brand one not a cheap one also you can buy a disk cleaner that gently takes the scratches out of cds and gets them as new but you will have to shop around to get one but these work on anything cd dvd games the lot so deff worth having one as lots of people throw out dvds cd and games due to the scratches stopping them working but remember the data on a disk isnt on the plastic it is on the layey the other side of plastic the plastic is their to protect the data getting damaged so removing the scratches does not damage the disk if you have scratches this will affect the disk because the laser cant read through the scratch so polishing these scratches out will make the disk as new not many people know you can do this so consider yourself having privalaged info hope this is some help to you but you might have to ask arround for a disk repair so good luck you could even charge people to repair their disks and games this works for anything on a cd style disk.........................................................
