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.

My Xbox disc has a paste looking thing around the inside ring and the game won't work so I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix that

I suggest you borrow another copy of the game from a friend and install it onto your xbox360. Then put your old disc into your xbox360 and have another go at it.

To do this, put in the unscratched copy of the game and press "Y" on the copy. This will copy all of the information from the disc onto your xbox360. After the game is installed, take out your good copy and put in your bad copy. Then go to games library and press play game.

In my PES 11 on my xbox 360 , it doesnt start .... when i put in the disc it says region error . SO how do i fix it?????

For the xbox360, the region code on the disc must match the region code in the registry of the dvd-rom drive. The only way around this is to modify your xbox360 so that it plays different regions. This is highly illegal, voids all your warranties and is not at all recommended.

I own a US console (NTSC) and it will only play discs that match with the NTSC code. I can not play a Japanese game (NTSC-J) since NTSC-J is different from NTSC.

Use the following link to figure out which region disc and which region xbox360 you have:

My xbox360 games has ring on it

If the game has a ring around the disc like a scratch you want to go to game stop and have them buff it out . How your games got scratch ring on them if u hit or if you move the 360 from horizonal to vertical while theres a game in the dvd drive it will make a loud buzz sound like a blender with no ice in it and thats what put a scratch ring in your games . you can a skipped disc fix from game stop its called skip disc fixer . its a pate that you put on the game and gently buff out the scratch . For heavy scratches that r deep you might want to buy the game used.

Not reading cds.

Now.. if it's four red rings, check your component cables, unplug them, then plug them back in, if it's only three lights flashing with the top-right quadrant remaining idle, then there is a problem with your hard drive and you have to send it in for repairs.. but as far as the fact that it won't play any games, try to get a disc that will clean the eye of the console something like "Maxell" player cleaner, that usually works.. if that doesn't help.. sorry

Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox

It sounds to me you have your 360 standing on it's side. I placed mine on it's side ONCE and because of it have a pretty scratched copy of Oblivion. Lay it horizontal, and that should rectify your issue. Let me know if this helps.
