Xbox 360 Scratches Disks


I am definitely not a gamer but am assuming that there are quite a few hanging out in here at times. It seems like latest toy for Christmas is not to nice to the disks if you move the box around.

The major problem is that when you move the box from vertical to horizontal and vice versa. This article goes into it in detail and also has a link to a video where you hear the offending sound of the disk being scratched.

Upon inspecting the laser assembly it was obvious there was only one small area that could have caused this. I applied some silver sharpie marker over the entire black laser assembly housing and reassembled the drive.

and of course, I would assume that the buggerin warranty went the same way as the disks. If you are a gamer and want a console that nobody has, Asprey provided the answer.
