Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Grand Theft Auto 4 disc "unclean and unable to read".

Several minutes into game play my X Box 360 is telling me that my GTA 4 disc is unclean, and unable to read. The machine also tells me in the same satement, to wipe the disc down with a soft towel/rag. There are no visible scars or scratches on the disc, other then one small blemmish in the middle of the disc, about the size of 1 mm(1/8inch).Would that be enough to bring the entire game to a screaching hault?
Also is it possible that my machine scratched this disc, considering it hasn't left my machine since the date of purchase, April 29th?
Thanks for your time.

I have the same problem buty only on gta4 xbox 360.. we don't have a hard drive only a memory stick thing and notice small blemishes appearing on the disc. it freezes, stops and starts sound continues but the picture and everything else kind of locks... its the second disc we have had from the same supplier.. Thought it was the x-box 360 itself but other games play with no problems whatsoever.

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4


I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.
