Scratched game disks

Does anyone have a problem where all of their game disks wind up with scratches that go along the entire outside 1/8 inch of the game disk? This usually occurs after about one month of playing the game.

My xbox messed up my games modenr warfare and 2k11 and it wont play them anymore what can i do about this?

Unfortunately once a disk is scratched there isn't really anything you can do about it. Most of the things that promise to fix scratched disks are fake and scratch them worse. I would suggest buying a used copy of the broken games, and avoid moving your xbox with disks on them. Also, if you have a friend with the same game, borrow the disk, install it to your harddrive, and try to run it with your scratched disk. Sometimes if it is installed to the harddrive it will run even if the disk is scratched.

Gamecube works on all my games but one and it has less scratches than the others

It doesn't matter how many scratches a disk has, it matters how deep the scratches are, and where they are placed. Not all of the disk is used when information is burned on it, that's why even if some disks are scratched, they still work because the scratches don't cover all of the disk.

A pointer: Is the top damaged? The top of the disk (label side) may not seem important, but it is actually the most important part of the disk, for the back of the label contains the game information. If that part is scraped, then you have to replace the disk.

The only solution I can tell you other than to replace it is to tell you to use a scratch remover. Scratch removers are a liquid material which fill in the scratches and allow you to play the disk again. Scratch removers are typically ten dollars(seven euros), or less. You can get them even cheaper online.

DON'T S-Don't go for the more expensive machines, they might ruin the disk even more because they grind the plastic until it's smooth. They can go up to fifty dollars.

Don't put toothpaste on you disks, it can permanently damage your disk.

Don't try to buff out any scratches with any foreign materials, it will damage the disk to unfix-able measures.

Good luck.

happend to me when a friend knocked over my console while playing. ive heard that if your console is on its side then it might scratch the disk. I would suggest standing the console up and playing if its laying down. and to fix the disks buy a game doctor or take it to a store that re-buffs discs. you may also want to call microsofts support line at 1-800-4myxbox and see what they say.

Game Cube will not read disks. Please help!

you can clean the disks using tap water and then drying with soft cloth have you tried a lense cleaner to clean the laser on the cube get a good brand one not a cheap one also you can buy a disk cleaner that gently takes the scratches out of cds and gets them as new but you will have to shop around to get one but these work on anything cd dvd games the lot so deff worth having one as lots of people throw out dvds cd and games due to the scratches stopping them working but remember the data on a disk isnt on the plastic it is on the layey the other side of plastic the plastic is their to protect the data getting damaged so removing the scratches does not damage the disk if you have scratches this will affect the disk because the laser cant read through the scratch so polishing these scratches out will make the disk as new not many people know you can do this so consider yourself having privalaged info hope this is some help to you but you might have to ask arround for a disk repair so good luck you could even charge people to repair their disks and games this works for anything on a cd style disk.........................................................
