    XBOX 360 Scratching discs!

    Hi all, now i know this has been quite a sore topic for microsoft as they don't want to admit any problems with their wonderful 360, but i have had 3 games ruined by the disc drive in my 360. I have however just got a replacement (Jasper!!!) model, but would like to know if there is any chance Activision would replace my COD4 disc? Microsoft have a "disc replacement program" for there own licenced games i.e HALO, but you have to pay £10 P&P??

    Any info on this subject, would be much appriciated....

    I've had 2 discs scratched by my 360 . Took them to a local game shop and got the scratches buffed out for £2. The shop said there isn't much you can do against Microsoft really . TI was told it can happen if you move the xbox whilst disc is inside .

    yeah, i moved mine when i first got it and it wrecked halo 3 with 2 massive circles that where beyond repair, now its got the rrod and am sending it back.:x

    you do have it horizontal I presume...............

    Go to GAME or HMV , for 3 quid they will fix it. They have CD/DVD repair service. Or I would send a email or letter to Microsoft Customer Service. And asking for some Game Vouchers or Replacement CD's. As the problem was caused by there device, you are within your customer rights to ask. P.S or upgrade to PS3, and never have that problem..

    "or upgrade to ps3" Yeah i probably would but online gaming is much better on the 360!!!
    will try Game again! Thanks for the advice, i think i have already spent £9 getting it repaired!?:p
