There may be dust in the disc reader, to know this try another disc, if it is just that one particular disc then try to buy a cd cleaner if this does not work then the disc has probably had an error(in some shops you can get the scratches removed with a laser and this will help) If your disc has circles on it do NOT USE IT and get it repaired it is usally very cheap

My disc is unreadable and i am trying

A disc being unreadable can mean one of two things: either the disc itself is damaged, or the device trying to read it is not functioning properly. Try the disc in another device to confirm it's the disc and not the device. If the disc still doesn't work, track down a professional resurfacer as a last ditch effort

Problems with Sonic Adventure 2 for Dreamcast, please Help!

Usually when a Dreamcast game freezes, it's because the system is having trouble reading the disc. Make sure there are no smudges or scratches on the disc. If the disc is scratched and you decide to get it resurfaced (many secondhand video game stores and movie rental places will offer this service at a very low cost) make sure you ask them to use the lightest setting possible--I've heard that resurfacing a Dreamcast disc too aggressively can make it completely unreadable.

If it's not the disc, it could be a problem with your console, but that sounds unlikely since it does it at the same part of the game every time.

If disc is scratched or dirty, can it be resurfaced?

If it is dirty you can clean any fingerprints with a dry cotton t-shirt ; however if the disc reads unreadable you might have to buy a new disc.

Clean the disc with a soft cloth FFXI xbox360

this is caused by the n November update in the MS xbox360 dashboard. This is a problem with the xbox communicating with the hard drive. This usually occurs in xboxs that are not using the HD shipped with the console. According to square the only solution to this common problem is that you reformat your hd and intsall the game again. yes, you have have to wait for that dl to finish. square also states that there is a possiblity that this may re-occur after the second install, though rare.

My sons games have been burnt by lazer ...

if the ring is on the outside edge of the Game disc, the console was moved during operation. the disc tips and hits the disc tray on the outside edge, you should see a scuff on the tray as well.

you can buy a disc cleaner that can remove the scuff from the disc, you will need the type that actually removes a layer from the disc or you can take it to a video store and have them clean or resurface the disc.

The problem is the xbox 360 keeps saying the disc is unreadable and we just got the game resurfaced.

This can be from a bad DVD drive in the 360, or it could be that the disk is scratched, but seeing as you just got it resurfaced, I think that it may be the drive going. Does it happen on all of your games?
