Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox

I had recently purchased mlb 2k7 and is pretty much the only game I play. So it rarely leaves the xbox. The other night I stopped playing and left my xbox running while I went to bed. It had shut off because of the timer when I woke but when I turned it back on it told me to insert into xbox360 the disc was in an xbox360 so I took it out and put it back in the same problem so in a matter of a 8 hours the disc was no good. I was playing raibow six las vegas about a day ago when the xbox started making an unusual sound so I took the disc out and there is a ring around the disc where it had scratched the game. Also before anyone suggest to send it in I am currently in iraq so if theres anything I can do myself that would help. I do use a can of air on it almost daily just to keep the dust out. thanks for the help

Re: Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox

It sounds to me you have your 360 standing on it's side. I placed mine on it's side ONCE and because of it have a pretty scratched copy of Oblivion. Lay it horizontal, and that should rectify your issue. Let me know if this helps.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb

I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360:

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website: "

Scrathing disks

You should try leaving the console flat while playing, if you haven't done that already. Keep it in a spot where it will receive no disturbance from outside sources. Another cause could be due to over usage. Limit the amount of hours spent playing.

Scratched disks

I had the same problem. I purchased a bag of foam rubber with double stick tape. Open the DVD drive and place two foam rubber pads on both the left and right of the inside of the top cover.

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?

Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.

Your laser in your xbox has been moved, this is causing scratching once the disc heats up. you need to take it to get adjusted. Or if there is a sticker on something on the disc that may unbalance it, take it off.
