I accidently shook my xbox 360 while it was running and now my modern warfare 2 game got screatched is there a way i can use it again?


It depends how badly scratched your Modern Warfare 2 disk is. There are scratch repair kits, but they can only do so much. If a scratch repair kit doesn't do the trick, take your disk to a place like Best Buy or Gamestop. They have professional solutions to fix your disk. Beyond that, you can always try calling up the game developer. They sometimes have warranty for scratched disks.

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.

My xbox 360 game is not working and i cleaned it what do i do


9 out of 10 times when a game is not working anymore it is because the disk is scratched. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a scratched disks, and anything that promises to fix scratches will either do nothing or make it worse. I would suggest buying a used copy of the game from a local retailer.

When i put game in comes up disc error what do we do


If the problem exists with all disks, your problem is with the disk drive itself. Wii disk drive cleaning kits retail less than US 8$ and are your best solution in this case. They include a custom sized microfiber tool used to clean the laser reading lens inside your Wii disk drive. If you have trouble with just one disk, the disk you are using may be dirty, scratched, or defective. Try cleaning your disk with water and a soft cloth (Do not use a paper towel, it will just leave paper pieces on the disk.) If the cleaning does not help, look for scratches on the top AND bottom of the disk. The slightest scratch on the disk can cause a read error. If you have a scratch you can try a disk buffer. Some video and game rental stores offer a disk buffing service for a small fee, if buffing and cleaning do not work, your disk is most likely defective. Return the game to the store you purchased it from and ask for a replacement if possible.

Removing scratches on my game cds


This is an all to often problem. I have had the same problem with my [music] CD's that have skipped tracks. There are many commercial disk cleaners on the market that will get the job done, though since gamecube disks are smaller than typical CD's, you might have to find a special kind of disk cleaner.
Though, you should know that these cleaners will typically only remove surface scratches, and that any deep scratches that may have made data unreadable can not, and will not be fixed.
Here is the typical disk cleaner, at a modest price.
And here is a specific game disk cleaner, at a much higher price.

Scratched disk


hi, this is a common problem with all video games consoles that take cd and the same for music cds.
Most people throw them out when they get scratced and start jumping or in your case wont load the game.
The good news is you can buy a cd polishing kit which polishes the scratches out of the disk.

How it works is you place the cd into a like similar to a cd box but it has three sanding wheels then when you put the disk in you then turn a small handle and the three polishing pads spin round and polish the scratches out of the cd getting the disk to work again.

The problem is finding some where that sells them i know Maplin stock them and sells them but if you have trouble finding anywhere that sells them then the best thing to do is type in in your browser "cd scratch remover" then this will list a load of sites that sell this product.
Its not expensive to buy and its well worth getting one as you can use it loads of times so if in the future you have more problems with scratches then its worth getting one.

Hope this is the help you was looking for i know they work as i use one myself for my ps2 and music cds that get scratched.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any questions.

On any cd the bottom part that the laser reads doesnt have the information and the data on it it is burned into the top part so as you look at a cd and where the writing is on top of the cd if this is scratched and you can see through the disk then it cant be repaired but if its the bottom part that the laser reads from then removing the scratches will solve your problem.
The scratches cause the laser to miss that bit of data thats under the scratch so polishing these out will be the same as having a new cd.

PS2 GTA: San Andreas Disk Problems


this shows that your cd is already damaged, the scratches might have hit the critical part. you said that some other cd's of yours have also scratches these are presumably minor scratches. its better if you purchase anew one. a damaged cd with deep scratches can damage the lense of your cd rom if you continously use this it would soon permanently damaged the lens
