I have a xbox 360 for about 15 months.
It's my 2nd one.
I have had major problems with both. More with this one though.
Seems to freeze upalot on me, also put in a game and it says it doesn't reconize the game. I also have been getting rings of scratches all over my games. I look at all my games, and they have rings. My xbox 360 is killing my games.

I love 360, but damn for the money I paid, I expected it to last longer.

Anyone else?

Some companies offer Replacement Plans for there products. I got mine from Best Buy and bought the PRP on it and it saved me $400 and piece of mind on waiting for the mail to come.

My XBox 360 quit reading discs about a month ago. Thankfully it was under warrantee and I was able to send it in. Instead of fixing it, they just gave me a brand new one.

Check on the xbox website and see if you are still under warrantee. If you are, send that sucker in and get a new one.

have you moved your console with the discs in? because it says somewhere that if you move them switched on or off they will scratch the disc big time and also can break your 360

yeah I did that with once, not knowing the xbox was still on, and it tore up my disc and it was done.

But i had probs with my disc's before and still. But more of a reading and freeze issue. I am going to contact xbox because someone told me they are fixing systems that cause ANY scratching on discs.

Thanks for info, but was more curious on other people's stories, just to see how many people actually have had probs. Its a shame these systems cant last longer...because just the other day my xbox is sounding louder then my computer on a bad day lol

If you have it standing on its side I know that ruins discs madcore. They even told me at the place I bought it not to stand it up how its advertised cause it wrecks everything. Mine broke this summer with the lights so they sent me a new one. You don't even need a warranty for the red lights so its all good for me haha.

Ok, this thread isn't as bad as the other two I saw yesterday, but jeez guys quit bumping these old threads. 2 threads that were over a year old, and now a thread thats over 4 months old.




But in any case... for scratching of the discs, your best bet would be to lay the xbox down on its side and make sure its on a stable surface. If you stand it up on edge, the odds of it moving around and damaging the disc is much greater, and an unstable surface that rocks back and forth could also cause the XBox to scratch the disk. As for the freezing... I have no clue. Make sure your XBox is in a well ventilated area, so it doesn't overheat.

Just leave it on its side an you'll have no problems....and never leave anything on top of it...just makes it head up more...regular dusting and cleaning around the area isnt a bad idea also..the last thing you want is your xbox sucking in all the dust from around that area....so listen to mom and clean your room!!!
