This happens when the disc touches the laser lens when the console is moved while the game is in it playing. You can fix this by either buying a monster clean screen cleaner or just go to your local Gamestop or Gamecrazy and have them buff your disk. It happened to me a few times, i got it buffed and everything is brand new.

    try to give the 360 a rest

  • John Foor Oct 22, 2010

    Giving it a rest has nothing to do with it, just put the darn xbox in a place where it won't get bumped, fixed issue

Dude, your game is Broken. All of yours are. The ring occurs when the Xbox is moved with a disk in it while playing. It really sucks and recently happened to me. You are gonna have to buy a new one, because it is considered "User Damage" and they won't give you a new copy.

To prevent putting a ring around disc make sure you have somthing to hold the system in place, if you don't, then have it placed flat on the floor.if you want to move it some place elts then take the game out first. this happend to me several times. i don't think you could get them fixed if the ring gose around the whole disc.

    i dont understand why every1 is saying how to prevent this im sure ever1 knows how to prevent it we just want to know how to fix this problem once it has already happened

  • krikit706 Feb 21, 2011

    The ring is not caused by moving your xbox. it is caused by leaving the game paused for and excessive amount of time. the only way to avoid this is to turn off the game when you stop playing. And your game is pretty much junk. The ring is where the laser was reading, and because it was in the same place for so long, it basically burned the data off of the disc.

SOURCE: my xbox360 slim keeps giving

That can't be fixed unfortunately. I know what you are talking about, as it happened to my Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 cd. This probably happened if you knocked it over or hit it while you were playing a game. My personal workaround was to use a friends disk to install the game to my hard drive, and play the game using my disk. The game worked from there.

I'm losing my connection...

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link

It won't stay in place it stays in the side of the ring of the there a way to fix it at all

You have to open the controller up and look inside to make sure there's nothing broke first. Make sure you leave the controller upside down when doing this. Looks like one of the tumblers jumped track.

Xbox not reading Fifa 10 game

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
