How do you clea a disk

  • Many times, all that a disc requires is a quick dusting, ideally using a cloth which has been specifically designed to clean a CD. To remove dust from a DVD or CD, use a soft, lint-free cloth. Hold the disc in a pincer grip with one finger along the edge and another in the hole in the middle, without touching the shiny portion, and gently move the cloth radially outwards from the middle. Do not rub the disc or move the cloth in circular motions, and avoid following the circular lines in the disc.

  • If the disc still looks dirty after dusting or you are having trouble playing it, a more serious cleaning effort may be required. Several companies make special chemicals for the purpose of cleaning DVDs, but you can also use household cleaning supplies. One of the best cleaners is rubbing alcohol, but you can also use a warm water and mild soap solution. Avoid any heavy duty solvents when you clean a CD, as they can damage the disc.

  • Apply the cleaning solution to a clean lint-free cloth, and wipe the disc, again radially. When you clean a CD with a liquid material, make sure to wipe the excess liquid off, and never put the disc back into its packaging when it is still wet. Allow the cleaned disc to dry completely before attempting to play it again. When you clean a CD with alcohol or a specialized cleaning solution, often the cleaner dries so quickly that this is not a major concern, but check for spots and marks which may interfere with clean play.

  • Even after cleaning, a disc may fail to play properly because of scratches. Some companies manufacture products which are designed to resurface discs, smoothing out scratches so that they will play again. Depending on how severe the damage is, these products can be quite effective, but it is a good idea to back up the data as soon as you have repaired the disc, in case it fails again.
Let me know how this works out for you.

Xbox wont read any of our games, but the games will read on friends. We can listen to music or use our microsoft points to watch movies.

Sounds like an issue with the optical drive. I would suggest trying a different type of disc in the drive ( I think they can play music CD's as well as DVD discs). You might just need a replacement drive for it.

That is enabled on the X-Box 360, but with the PS3's settings, their is No way to play music while playing a video game on the console. If you want, just go to or And install one of those. It is a free Legal music downloading Program. If you don't feel like downloading them, just go to And stream. Only thing is the I-Pod, if you need that, just plug it in to your computer and either. A) Listen through Headphones or B) Listen through I-Tunes. Hope this helped.

The Wii version of GH3 has a Game Disc defect in that the discs were only encoded with one of the two channels of stereo sound. Which speaker are you hearing the chords from, left or right? A recall is in effect where buyers can send in their defective discs and get properly functioning ones for free. The fixed discs start shipping out in February. Here is the website where you can sign up for the recall:
