Hi there,

My bf and I often watch dvds upstairs on his Xbox 360 but have noticed lately that dvds, which aren't scratched in the slightest, keep skipping after a short time of being played.

Is there anything we can do to resolve this??

Suggestions welcomed. :-)

you tried all the usual cleaners

I thought they were just to clean the discs which are in perfect condition?

Are there cleaners I can use to clean the xbox?? If so please could you point me in the direction to finding some at a bargain price and will they harm the xbox in any way?

just try a disk cleaner. from pound shops etc and they dont harm the x box. if not you need to look at the age of the x box etc.
There's definitely only one disc in? Your son hasn't jammed several in at some point?

Well it was a launch XBOX, so it is about 5 years old now, so maybe that's it.

Thank-you for your help though, much appreciated. :-)
