    nearest sainsbury's is 30 mile & can't get there till next weekend unless i take a bus

    Call up microsoft and moan until they give you a new 360 - simple.

    They should be able to use the Serial Number to find out how long is left on the warranty

    Take it back to the nearest store or give them a phone and see if they will pay for postage if you send it to them - when i worked in retail we would get loads back by post and always made sure postage was covered

    and if his disks are scratched because of his 360 thenn.... :-D lol...

    Try turning the 360 so the disk drive is upside down... no idea if it'd work but y'know!

    lol

    It could be yes, if the surface it's on isn't completely level (say sitting on stand on a thick soft carpet or wonky wooden floor) the disk may hit the laser and scratch your discs

    From having a look on Google it's a pretty common problem though so maybe not
