Re: TOOTH PASTE DOES NOT WORK
Hi DAVED North,
I Just got a XBOX 360 Call of Duty 3 disc back in shape using Toothpaste. Now the disc had a buildup around the outer edge from where it jumped off the spindle at high speed, This left a scratch all the way around the outer perimeter. I scrubbed and scrubbed for like 10 minutes on this scratch with Crest Toothpaste. The scratch is gone, but it left a foggy look where I did the toothpaste. Call of duty 3 is not working perfectly where is would not read at all before the toothpaste. This is why I say use toothpaste. It may not work on all, but it does work on some.

it could be your wii,but if you were to clean a disk use tooth paste and gently rub it on the disk up and down. never clean a disk in a circular motion. or go to a game store and ask if they can clean the disk. or buy scratch out. can be found at a block buster. hope this helped. :)
If you take a little bit of toothpaste and put it in the scratch, it is said to restore the protective layer that would otherwise cause the disk to jump and be unreadable. Here is a step by step how to for you: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-a-CD-With-Toothpaste
If your game is scratched then try rubbing a bit of tooth PASTE (Not the GEL kind, the tube will clearly say which it is) on the scratch with a soft lint and static free cloth. Clean off with a very small amount of window cleaner. If this doesn't work you may have to look into getting a pro scratch remover kit, which may still not work.
If the disc is actually cracked (not scratched) then there is nothing you can do to fix it. Even if you glue it together with extraordinaryprecision there will still be a permanent separation between two parts of the disc.
If you have scratches in your disc take white tooth past and rub it over the scratch wait 5 minutes then rub it off this will fill the crack/scratch if you have small scratches take windex on a paper towel on rub it on the disc and also dry clean your disc tray. hope this helps.
One reason this is happening might be the positioning of your system. If it is vertical try changing it. Another thing you might try to prevent scratches might be a little thing I do to all my games. Take some tooth paste, a napkin, and alcohol or nail polish remover. Put the tooth paste on the napkin rub a layer on each of your games, then remove the layer with the alcohol or nail polish remover. I have found that the fluoride keeps the disc from being as damaged if they fall or scratched.
...Step one: Get in your vehicle/mode of transportation. Step two: Drive your cheap a$$ to GameStop Step three: Spend a whole whopping 5 dollars to buy a new one. You'd probably waste more money in toothpaste trying to fix it that way then buying a new on all together.
It sounds like the disc is scratched beyond being able to read it.. in any way known..
You could try:
a) Washing the disc with water and soap very gently, with a soft towel, from the inside of the disc to the outside, in straight motion - NOT ACROSS THE DISC.
b) Trying one of those products like Disk Doctor to clean the disc
c) Possibly need to buy a new copy..
