    It's your own fault for letting the 360 move. Don't EVER let the 360 tip tilt twist turn or move when it's on and a game is in the tray, it will almost always ruin it. Be more careful with your consoles and your games.

    I wish 360 was more durable esspecially since its made to be either laying down or standing up they should have fixed that problem before they thought about making it stand

    Not true.

    You can get it resurfaced by a commercial Disc resurfacer but I do not know what all store carry them since most good ones are $1500+. I suggest taking it to any store that does resurfce discs and let them try, I know my local gamestore has a good one and they only charge $4 a disc and it gets out circle scratches like yours with ease.

    Those are sort of rare where I live so I never really though of that, but that would work. Some stores charge a lot though...

    I am not sure how many stores will actually have a good model resurfacer but even around where I live the only place that has one is my local gamestore and I believe they make a decent profit with the disc repairs, but the repairs are not that expensive either. I actually think that they still do the get 3 discs repaired for $8 instead of the normal $12.




    No and the last time I checked the resuracers they use were a POS. I would suggest maybe asking a local cd stores or gamestores if you have any i the area you live in.

    somewhere
    It's trash anyway, so if a store around you doesn't offer resurfacing, you can buy a manual spinning disc repair kit at most local department stores.
    Probably won't fix it, but you'll be no worse off.
    I know from experience that laser burn and deep scratches are a bitch to repair.
    I used to work with a machine that was about $300. Not the best out there, but it did the job most of the time.
    You gotta have something that will sand down the plastic past the damage and then buff it out.
    All I can say is good luck.
    If you want to put out the cash for one if you have many discs to fix, look up jfj easy pro.
    It's reasonably affordable. You can also charge ppl to repair their discs.
    Anyway, I wish you luck.

    Simple fix. Borrow a friend's copy, and have him rip it to the HDD. That way you'll still be able to play. That of course is if Black Ops still shows up as Black Ops when you put the disc in the disc drive. If not then you are pretty much out of luck.

    Heck, rent it for a day from Blockbuster. Rip it, take it back.

    If you really wanna be evil, WHICH I DON'T CONDONE. Blockbuster has a policy against scratches here. If you pay a extra dollar, you're covered for all damages to the disc. You could bring them your circle scratched one.

    If you wanna try a cheap quick fix I would recommend scratch-out, I believe Wal-Mart still sells it and you just apply it to the disc with a soft cloth. I also would not recommend a manual disc repairer since they tend to do more harm than they do good.

    Honestly if your having trouble with this with more then one game you could flash the drive and play a copy. You can also buy a used copy then return the damaged copy from Gamestop and other stores but that isn't legal and might hurt your conscience.
