Use furniture polish like pledge or wood polish. one srpay over the scratches an then get a soft cloth and spread the polish on it. then let it dry for like 2 min. put it bak in an it should play. if it doesnt then put a little mroe polish on it. i did this for all my scratched games an it works waay better than toothpaste. the wax from the polish fills in the scratches an then hardens. you dont hurt your game, youre jus fillin in the cds natural portective layer. all ur game data is under the spot ur filling.

Ok i got one that involves both the last post about the "perfect ring scratch and toothpaste" statement and the issue at hand dealing with the xbox reading discs. Ok so i moved the xbox while running (dummy) got the ring scratch on my disc, polished three times with non gel toothpaste, it worked! Two days later Im playing a game, I take out the game Im playing and pop in another, I keep getting the open tray message. Coincidently the second game Im trying to play when i initially received the open tray message was the game repaired by toothpaste. Ok well, I think my fix was not a permanent one so I pop the initial game back in and now get the same open tray message. THe point is Im not sure if this is all coincidental or not but I hypothesized as a potential consequence of coating the toothpaste on the disc that perhaps some of the residue that was on the disc flung off over a period of a couple of days and coated the lens. Its more than likely a coincidence but I guess be wary of toothpaste on discs, even though quite amazingly it actually did work. Im about to go by some lens cleaner and see what happens.

Have you ever moved the console while it was on? that will leave a scratch on it that is a perfect ring. it pretty much means your game is toast. some people suggest putting a little tooth paste on it and whipping it with a tissue, but i dont know if it works. its worth a try if the disk doesnt work at all

Tips for a great answer:
Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the
bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or
image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your
console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by
the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft,
clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.
· Note Use ONLY water to
clean the disc.
Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your
console and see if the disc plays.
