    so.. im at my dad house 4 x-mas

    than i end up staying there for 5 day and miss boxing day

    so i called up my mom and told her that i changed my mind and wanted a 360 instead of wii so she went and got one for me (the bundle)

    than the day that i get back i set up the whole thing and then i start playing ghost recon and about 2 hours fly by than i remembered see'ing on the t.v. that when you turn the 360 around the light changes (the one that tells you how many ppl and playing) and i notice a scratching sound so i poped out the game and it was all scratched

    IM FURIOUS has this ever happened to someone here ?

    It happened because *you're not supposed* to move the Xbox with a disc in the tray. Sorry to sound flaming dude, but it's in the manual. A lot of people have been complaining about that (mostly when the Xbox stands vertically).

    look up disc repair on google for some tips on how to buff out the scratch. anyways this should only happen if you move the console while a game is being played. its rare to happen to a console that is standing still

    Always remove the disc before moving the console. Also you can easily fix this. Just take some toothpaste and put it on a paper towel and wipe it onto the disc. Then take another piece of toilet paper and add a bit of water to clean off the toothpaste. Once you have done that dry the disc and hopefully it should work again.

    That is pretty sad, but really, it's your own fault. You should've read the manual, it's not like the system's going anywhere.

    I always make sure to read the manual when i buy something new, especially something expensive..

    Unless you have a query, I guarantee you that 95% of gamers do NOT read the manual. Even so, this is common sense and has been since the release of the Playstation.

    Well this happened to me sorta, only I thought I hadn't taken the disc out before taking the 360 over to my brothers house to setup. Unfortunately I plugged in the power before I arranged the console...waaaah.

    Anyhow my Full Auto had a serious gouge, I took it to Game Quest and they resurfaced it for like $8, guess it wasn't a bad lesson for $8. At any rate the disc looks brand new now. But you will probably have to take it to a professional disc scratch remover, I seriously doubt that one of those skip doctor gadgets will be able to remove a serious gouge.

    I guess that just goes to show that I'm smarter than 95% of people that play games then. :thumbsup:

    If you don't want them to examine everything too closely I would make it look as much as when you purchased it as possible.

    Pretty sure they will, stores are very good about returns around the holidays. Some don't even require receipts.

    Uh, No. It is with anything that uses a disc tray.

    i dont think it happens to self loading bays though, like wii or ps3, because dont thoes keep the disc compact in the place? i could be wrong, this is more of a guess on my part

    p.s. i just relized you did say disc tray, so this is more of a wondering question
