Bumping Xbox 360 Elite caused game disc to get scratched

On accident, I bumped my new xbox 360 elite (the shiny black 250gb model) while playing Forza 3.  I heard a brutal scratching sound but the disc kept spinning.

When I tried to load another track to play the console froze.  I had a nice scratch on the disc and now the disc is useless.

This is why you should not bump or move your console with a disc in OP, but unfortunately accidents happen.

Take the disc to a game retailer and hve the disc buffed, many places do this for a small fee. Worth a shot for a few $'s.

Then try installing the game.

If it still does not work rent it and install that copy to your HDD, then it may read your disc just enough to boot up.

And if neither of these suggestions works then you will need to buy a new copy of the game.

That is why it is called an accident, something that is not intentional but happens anyway and often beyond human control.

I will buy another copy of Forza 3, most likely the platinum version to get the added extras.  This time, I will install the game onto the hard drive.  However I have already placed the system horizonal to avoid this from happening in the future.

Open the dashboard with the game in the console, press Y to display the details of the game.  Here you can install the game to the console.
