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. :/

My Spyro the Dragon game will not play. It gets to the Playstation logo and freezes. I just had it resurfaced so it's not scratched. It is a Playstation 2 and plays all other games.

The best thing I could offer as advice is to cover the bottom of the disc with toothpaste, the toothpaste acts as a resurfacing agent and helps get rid of scratches, obviously clean the toothpaste off throughly before inserting the disc into the Playstation 2 disc tray.

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.

How do people fix scratched game disk"s
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.

Console scratched new Bandhero disc

Chances are that the reason it was scratched was because the console was bumped while you were playing the game. This causes a circular scratch all the way around the disc. You can try to resurface it, but this doesn't always work and you will have to rebuy the game. Sorry :(

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?
