Well of course.. When you move it you throw the balance of the disc off and that is what happens.

Actually before you guys say its the 360 learn some facts. Any disc drive with a moving CD/DVD in it WILL become damaged if it is moved.

I was working on a computer install Windows XP, and the drive was outside the tower, and I bumped it. The CD was f***ed.

All they have to do is put some little pads in it and this will avoid people from complaining about this problem and returning it when they find out this happens. But I bet they wont do it because there cheap <_<

Why is this a surprise to people? Why would they even do that. Its the same for all DVD-drives I'm sure. You bounce the drive around its going to scratch the disc... They should be stress testing it and maybe even open it up for us so we can see what the heck is inside. What a waste just scratching a disc...

This has nothing to do with the xbox itself...why would need to touch your xbox unless you're switching games...only morons drop their xbox's.

Who moves their Xbox while a disc is in?
Oh yeah a kid that eats paint chips.

Except for portable CD players :tongue: with ESP.
Man do I miss my Sony Walkman.
Now .mp3s are the new thing.

Heres an idea... Dont move your console. I dont understand, so people game on go or something. My Xbox has been in the same exact spot for years now... If you wreck your game cause your trying to move your console with the game running. Then your retarded.
