My son tilted the Xbox while it was reading a disc, he played dumb and theres like a big circular scratch on the disc. Games loads up to the point where you need to load the map, then it freezes.

Is this beyond repair or is there a good chance it can get fixed?

Also, do all Game stores have the disc repairer?

is it just the one game that doesnt work?

Most game stores offer their disk doctor service for *i think* 2 - 3.99.

yeah, just the one game, when you hold it up to the light, no light shines through the disc, i dont think its through to the data part.

game charge £2.99 to clean your disc, blockbuster charge £2.00 had to get it done this week as my son moved his xbox 360 with call of duty still in it, hope this helps

I'm new to XBox and this is news to me.

To confirm, you shouldn't move your XBox when it is on with a disc inside. Correct?

Presume it is OK to move when powered off with a disc inside.

Happyshopper, when disc is spinning, dont move the xbox. Otherwise, its safe.

And im new to Xbox too, never ever had that happen to the Ps3.
