Your unit is still under warranty if you bought it new the best thing to do is call the xbox number and they will send you a fedex box to put it in and send out my xbox took about 2 month to fix and they gave me a free month to their online services hope this helps

Are other games working correctly in your Xbox 360?

Is this a brand new disk? or did you buy used?
if used, check for major scratching on the disk. If scratched heavily you can try to buff out scratches with a lint free cloth, I have also heard that toothpaste could be used for buffing out scratches, but I would only try this as a last resort.

If other games work fine in your Xbox, it's probably the disk. Make sure you have the XBOX version of the game (and didnt accidentally grab the PS3 game instead or something)

If it is the right version of the game and brand new and not working, call Activision and tell them you have a bad disk, if it's brand new I can't see how they wouldn't replace it. Or just return it to the store.

Scratching disks on xbox 360


You may want to scour the web for this one as I know I have heard about this problem before from quite a few people. However, for those who have only experienced this on a disc or two it could result from moving the console while a disc is in the drive, even if the console is off.

Dont worry. All this is, is your son must of tipped over his Xbox 360 console or he moved it, while it was on. In the Xbox 360 there is a default in which the thing that holds the cd and reads it is lose and falls onto the cd and scratches the disk, thats why it is a perfect circle. It happend to me the first day i got the Xbox 360. And also keep the Xbox laid down, it keeps it safer from tipping over and prevents it from scratching it again.
Go to the store you bought the game from and you should be able to get a new one. My store gave me ea skate back. Show them your receipt.
If they dont accept it, you have to call microsoft and send in that game and they send you a new one in the case.

X box 360 scratching discs


That is a very odd problem. Unless you have a special warranty, the unit will not get replaced for a new one until it cannot be fixed by a tech. You have to write or e-mail Microsofts contact in your manual and complain about the games getting destroyed by the Xbox. They may want to see copies of the receipts for the games too, but be very firm with them or they will not take you serious.
