Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. 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. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. 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 normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.

For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on 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!!

Have had three game discs destroyed by a deep scratching all the way around the disc...scratch runs the full 360 degree circumference. happens randomly. what is causing this and how can i fix it?


Could be caused by dirt or dust in the actual disc reader assembly for the 360. you can purchase a DVD cleaner disc for cheap from numerous retailers like best buy and walmart. or online.
Here is one I found for cheap on amazon.com with free shipping: http://www.amazon.com/Memorex-CD-DVD-Player-Laser-Lens-Cleaner/dp/B00008EM7U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1296002431&sr=8-1
If this doesnt work then there may be more serious hardware issues with the dvd drive, you can get it replaced at an authorized repair shop or you can send it in to microsoft.
Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 Console: my xbox 360 game has a ring around...


Your disc was most likely laserburned. The xbox will do this if you run a disc for a long stretch, this problem may occur... To continue playing the game, you will need to obtain a good disc and install the game to your hardrive. You will then be able to play the game on your laserburned disc.

I have laser burn on my call of duty modern warfare 2 game, amongst others. how can i fix it or is there a place to get it fixed at. PS. dont sent stupid **** to my email.


Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. 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 professional disc repair services is normally rerquired to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

You can send your discs off to this Disc Repair Service and the discs shall be sent back as good as new.

Scracthes rings into the game


Lay the Xbox horizontally on a very sturdy surface. Scratch rings often indicate and Xbox and shaky surfaces ie: floor, wobbly shelf... Walking around and stuff like that can shake the xbox and rattle the disc around inside.

This has happened to our 360. It seemed to happen the the 360 was on its side, We make sure that we do not force the games in fast, or remove them fast. If you need to get the scrathes out of the disc. Local game store can remove them. Or you can buy a kit @ Meijer or Walmary to remove scrathes from the disc.

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks


If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

18004MYXBOX, this is the Xbox support center and they will either know exactly what to do or will have you ship it off to get it fixed(its usually under warranty and free). I had a similar problem where my xbox would work fine but just wouldnt read any of my disc no matter what is was.
