I've heard from my gamer friend that EB Games can do this for free, but don't quote me on that. You can also purchase a device to remove scratches, but they're a bit on the pricey side. :/

How To Fix A Scratched CD,DVD,Rom,Disk ect

Some time you get a disk that gets scratched and you cant play it, it could be a disk for anything such as a video game system or a dvd. There are many myths to get the scratches out like flushing it in the toilet ( it does clean it).

To remove the scratches you need to resurgace the disk, pretty much scratch a layer of it off. You can purchause a disk resurfacer from places like walmart for about 20 dollars but also some game stores and most stores that sell used cds can do it to.

I have a super smash brothers melee disk with alot of scratches on it. i am wondering how to fix it

The best way to fix any scratched disc is to have it resurfaced. Most second-hand game stores and movie rental stores will provide this service for a small fee (usually $1 or $2 per disc), and the disc will come out looking and working like new!

The only exception to this is Dreamcast games (these can be damaged by resurfacing) and CDs with top side damage. GameCube games are DVDs, so there should be no problem at all when you resurface them.

How to fix gamecube games that won't work at all

If the disc is cracked, there's really no way to fix it. If it's just badly scratched, it might be saved by resurfacing the disc. Most used game stores and movie rental stores will resurface a disc for a very small fee, usually $1 to $2 per disc. If the scratches are too deep, though, even resurfacing might not help.

MY problem is that my disk is all mas and when i put the disk it tells me to clean it and i do that and then i'm put the disk again and it tells me to clean it again and i dont know what to do

Is the disc scratched at all? If is it scratched this will be a problem. You may be able to resurface the disc a little. Some game stores and pawn shops offer resurfacing for a few dollars. It grinds down the plastic covering over the data so that the scratches are not as bad.
If this is not the problem it could be that the laser in your drive is going bad, getting weaker.

Disc scratched . any way to fix it - mw2

You could try buying a Disc resurfacer. Depending on the severity of the scratch, this COULD fix it. If a resurfacer doesn't work, then it may be beyond repair and you need to get a new copy of the game.

This is the type of thing you should use, they really do work and you can get them world wide form all ebay sites and shops.
You can also try a home method, this is to use a cloth and toothpaste, toothpaste will act like fine sandpaper and small circle rubbing over the area will buff the scratch out.

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?
