Game cd doesn't Install clearly.


Hi Lilly,
Are there any visible scratches on the disk if so this is most likely the disk, take it to your local Game store, or supermarket (sometimes) and get the disk re-surfaced. This should solve the problem. Install with the re-surfaced disk

Fifa 12 disc not working. saying disc needs cleaning


The first thing to do is clean the disk.

Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part of the disk.

Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.

Insert the disk into the console. If it still doesn't work, your lens may need to be cleaned. I'd recommend taking your console to a local gaming or tech store. A qualified technician will be able to clean the console without causing damage.

Hope this helped,
-Dan

Dis is unreadable for the game black ops


There is a good chance that your game is scratched. Try cleaning it using the steps below:

Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part of the disk.

Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.

If this doesn't work, try restarting the Xbox and opening and closing the disk tray a few times.

If it is still unreadable, I'd recommend taking the disk to a local game store. Many places will offer a "buffing" service to clean the disk that can cost approximately $5-$10. There is chance that this will render the game unusable, so only do this as a last resort.

Hope this helped,
Dan

My hard disk is western digital 500GB sata blue caviar 16MB 7200RPM .... it stopped working toady with no reason, it was working fine yesterday night, when i wake up today i found its not working any more...


> stopped working toady (froggy? today?)

It "died" -- either the electronic circuit-board "under" the "spinning" part of the disk-drive has short-circuited, or the motor that spins the recording surfaces has quit.

You've tried it on another computer -- so you've done all that you can.

Any 500GB disk-drive is likely to still be under the W.D. warranty.
Open the enclosure, and get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access the W.D. web-site, and click "check warranty status", and enter that information.
If the warranty is valid, W.D. will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- purchase a new W.D. device from the W.D. web-site, and you qualify for a good discount on your purchase.

Or, remove the disk-drive from the enclosure, buy a replacement, compatible, disk-drive, and "transplant" it into the enclosure, to create a working external storage device.

Verbatim CD-R 52X Printable disc. What does the term ' Silver Inkjet Printable" mean and how do I use it. Thank you.


> silver inkjet printable

It means that in addition to the "bottom" of the disk being capable of being "burned" by a CD/DVD writer, that the "top" of the disk is capable of absorbing ink, if you put the disk (instead of a sheet of paper) through an inkjet printer, and print some images/text onto the surface, to create a professional-looking label on your disk.

My ps2 disc wont spin! aht do i do?


I've had this problem quite a few times; here are some potential issues: (1) If it is any color disk but the standard shiny silver (i.e. purple, blue) it will not play. it will do about one or two spins and be done. (2) When was the last time you cleaned it? Take out the screws. It's been a while for me but I believe they are under the pads for laying them down. Get some canned air (1 = $4 or $5 for a good one), hold it straight up and clean it. PLEASE MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING THIS. (3) 75% of my problem was that I had the PS2 laying down so the disk goes in horizontally. Set it up and try that way if it's not already. (4) Check your disk and if it's really scratched then that could be another problem. *(5) Wall Plug. If you have more than 2 appliances plugged into the wall outlet then you could be depriving the unit the power it needs to operate properly. Consider an extension cord or moving it to another outlet.

Disk won't spin


My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...
