Xbox 360 disk ring


Recommended Posts

So I got an Xbox 360 a while back, so I was playing a game and then one of my tables legs broke, producing a ring on the back of the disk 

Spoiler

It will no longer play, it just spins and spins making noise (I should do a we are number one remix but with Xbox disks shattering...) sometimes it says there's a disk in but it never runs, any solutions? All the ones from the other websites and such didn't work

You are screwed. You can't save it sadly. If it is new and you got a cd protection you could perhaps get a new one at the store. Otherwise buy a new copy of the game. Been there done that.

God, fucking, damnit. Welp it can't be helped I guess, I still got my saved data so it shouldn't be that big of a problem

A ring-type scratch on an optical disk is the worst kind.  The data is written in concentric rings, so a ring-scratch is equivalent to deleting an entire block of data.  Whereas a linear scratch can be corrected for because there's copies of the data in the rest of each ring; it just slows down the disk access times.

yeah, sorry dude but youre screwed. i had this happen to a disk of mine as well for the 360, went into a store that offers to descratch disks and they said that even if they did that, it still most likely wouldnt work as its a lot deeper.

 

luckily, dont even remember how but i had another copy of that game at the time.
