    Quite common on the Xbox 360.

    Only happens if you keep the xbox on it's side & you bump it

    Blockbuster have got machines that take scratches out of discs for around £2

    how did personel portable cd players ever work i wonder

    we use CEX, they apparently use 'industrial' machines, and only charge about £2

    Pretty sure it's not a 'laser burn'

    If so I'm taking my xbox apart to get rid of next door's cat.....

    It the metal ridge near the laser that scratches the discs
    Another midrange design floor

    Someones knocked the xbox over with the game in and xbox on...

    I would give activision a ring and tell them what has happened, they may ask you to send a tenner off or something with the game and receipt and they may replace it for you. After all you have paid for the software originally, and just need a replacement disc.

    This is not going to be just a normal scratch, this is going to be a full on, deep lazer burn

    The disc for the want of a better word... IS xxxxxx!

    It's a flaw that the Xbox suffers from, that no other console does.

    it's hardly a flaw, you're not meant to move the xbox while playing a game

    There is no laser burn!
    The underside of a disc is a protective layer of plastic, that is what has been scratched.
    A disc buffer in CEX or Gamestation or wherever will fix it.

    It isn't a laser burn you idiots. Also it's not just the 360, I've seen … It isn't a laser burn you idiots. Also it's not just the 360, I've seen plenty of PCs do this.



    Whatever it is, it's not something any other console suffers from. Not sure why the insults, it doesn't make you any more correct.

    PC's aren't moved a fraction of what games consoles are.

    basically rather than having a tray, you lock the disc in place directly to the centre spindle (the bit that spins, usually locks in place with some ball bearings. this means the disc has little to no travel when knocked.

    this isn't "laser burn".

    problem with the 360 is, the disc goes in, then gets sandwiched between a spindle and a magnetic top piece. for a start the magnetic top piece has about 2-3mm travel in the space above it, and the spindle has a bit of travel too... so the console gets knocked and all hell breaks loose!

    basically, don't move the 360 while the disc is spinning. not even just to stand it up right. the scratches are deep, worth trying to repair but often fails..
