I just bought a new game today for Xbox 360. It seems to work fine, but tonight when I put the disc away, I noticed a dent right next to the hole in the center of the disc. It has a small black mark in it, it almost looks like it was touched by something very hot. It is a brand new disc. When I bought the game, I also bought an extended warranty on it, so I can take it back to the store and get it replaced, but I would rather not do that if it is not a problem. Is this dent something that could cause problems for me?

Re: Dent in center of game disc
If you paid money for an extra service, I think you should take advantage of that service you purchased. The disc might run smoothly as of now, but might fail anytime soon due to this dent you are claiming. Considering that the Xbox 360 Console is very sensitive and you can really never tell what's gonna happen. So , it'll bebetter to have it replaced from the store where you got it. :)
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.
Try to wash one of your disks with dishwashing soap, just one is enough to do the cleaning. Start mixing the disks when they dont work, this will clean the lens. i had the same problem, worked fine for me.
I doubt it's the 360 since everything else is working just fine. The menu works fine, the game works fine. However if you downloaded one of these maps from the marketplace it may be corrupt, and you will have to delete and re-download the map pack.
That might be something related to your Xbox 360 console itself or the disc you are trying to play on, so first have a look on the Xbox 360 game disc itself and check whether there is any kind of scratches or flaws on it.
If you find a scratch or a flaw on the disc that seems to be the reason and just to check it you can put any other game in your Xbox 360 console and try it once more, if the other game is working fine that definitely assures that it's a fault with the game disc & check on the scratched discs page on our web site for more information about the reason for this issue to occur.
In case there is no scratch or a flaw on the game disc try the following steps: 1- With no discs in the disc tray, go to the System section on the dashboard. 2- Select Console Settings. 3- Select Start Up. 4- Make sure it is set to Disc not dashboard. If it is set to dashboard, select Disc and try the game again. It should work. If is already set to disc or you tried setting it to Disc and still not working try the following steps: 1. Just clean the disc & put it back in your Xbox 360 console and see whether it's going to work again or not. 2. If it's still not working try also another discs to know whether it's an issue with the actual Xbox 360 console then or not. 3. If the other discs work fine you can try it then without the hard drive because it might also be something related to the hard drive. 4. If it is still not working so this game disc would be for sure faulty and you have the right to exchange it from the retailer you bought it from as it's not scratched.
In all cases if other game discs are giving you the same error message "To play this disc, put it in an Xbox 360 console" you need then to contact Xbox 360 customer support to send your console to get repaired or exchanged.
i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war. i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one. and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.
it might be scratched and you can get a tiny layer of plastic scratched off the bottom and make it playable again, at a local cd store or electronic store for price that wont put a dent in your wallet.
The Xbox 360 is known for this. I would contact Microsoft as soon as possible.

the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.
Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.
