Most consoles (PS2/360) have had reports and Microsoft finally admitted that they knew the console could scratch up games due to a failed design concept. Dont hear too many ps2 ring scratches. You could try <a rel='nofollow' href="">this</a>

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.

My xbox360 games has ring on it

If the game has a ring around the disc like a scratch you want to go to game stop and have them buff it out . How your games got scratch ring on them if u hit or if you move the 360 from horizonal to vertical while theres a game in the dvd drive it will make a loud buzz sound like a blender with no ice in it and thats what put a scratch ring in your games . you can a skipped disc fix from game stop its called skip disc fixer . its a pate that you put on the game and gently buff out the scratch . For heavy scratches that r deep you might want to buy the game used.

Each of my discs are gettin scratched

Don't leave your cds in the xbox while its off.. the older models tend to scratch them while they are off, and when you start up the box with a cd in it probably messes the cd...

You're better off downloading games to hard drive since It reads the disk alot less.. preventing scratching while it checks it.

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!!!

For further help on XBOX & XBOX 360 disc repairs, visit: Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

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!!!
