    Hi, folks.
    I think I have noticed circular scratchs on my game disks.
    I cannot see them in normal light, but when I shine a torch or a light on it, I see large and small circles on my discs.
    I've heard that those circles are not scraches caused by XBOX, but they're marks from manufacturing process, and most of XBOX game discs (if not all) have those circles if looked hard enough. [​IMG]
    Could anyone clarify this please ??
    P.S. I know this is different from Japanese XBOX disc scratch happening. Their scratch were tiny dust-like scratches on edge of discs.

    Shine a light on some of your dual-layered movie DVDs. I suspect they will look the same...you are probably seeing where the end of game data occurs.

    Thanks for the input. [​IMG]
    But DVDs, PlayStation2, and GameCube titles do not have those circular scratches/patterns.

    Maybe you should keep your disks away from torches, I cant think that heat is good for the disks at all. [​IMG]

    Well, I can tell you that mine are not scratched (unlike what my PS2 did to discs a year and a half ago).
