    So, i was just playing COD:WW with some friends, and i was getting a bad connection, so i slid it to the right a bit, hoping it would better my connection, and i heard an awful sound from the disc tray. Pulled out my disc, and there was a nice little ring around the disc. Now it won't even load the game.

    I didn't even tilt the xbox at all. Any one know of how i can get a replacement disc? I know i have heard that MS knew about the disc destroying defect upon shipping the first consoles. I should be able to get a replacement right? The disc was mint before this happened, like all my games.

    Links or anything will help.

    I doubt Microsoft will do anything. They give you a warning ahead of time on all new consoles.
    It's a clear sticker right on top of the disc tray saying "Don't move the system while game is in play" or something like that.
    You're on your own I assume.


    And how would tilting/sliding your Xbox360 possible increase internet speed? -_-;

    When did you buy it? I've had mine for 2+ years and It came with one when I bought it.

    I got it on March 3rd, 2007 at 5:19 in the afternoon :D
    (still have the receipt and ALL original packaging and stuff. Didn't throw anything away.)

    It would increase my connection by minimizing obstructions like walls, floors, tables etc. My xbox just happens to be in my basement, and the router is on the 2nd story. There was also a pipe above it that i think might be hurting the connection.

    EDIT:
    I am going to try and borrow a friends copy and save it to my HDD. Hopefully that will work.

    With the ridiculous amount of noise that comes from the disc tray i'm surprised you had the balls to attempt to move it while it was reading a game :/

    Once I knocked my 360 over while playing a game. Left 4 dead was demolished :p

    Ever heard of wireless internet? Even the slightest movement can cause a better strength connection.

    I managed to mostly revive Rainbow Six Vegas after kocking over my 360 mid-game. Those disc descratchers do wonders.

    I think i know someone who has one of those. I'll see if they still do. But the reviews for that particular one were terrible btw. ;)

    When my disk got scratched like that I could rub away the white stuff from the disk and then it would work fine. :p I had to be quite forceful though, and use my fingers.
