Don't use toothpaste. You'll have to scrub to remove it and if you don't fully remove it, you'll muck up your xbox inside. Don't need that extra problem. I do agree with the rubbing alcohol. Use a soft cloth and gently wipe the disc with that then let it air dry.

Try tooth paste or rubbing alcohol if all else fails buy a disc cleaner to help, and do not use a towel to clean it as it may scratch the disc.

ARe guitar hero game is not working.we played it once and the machine fell over and the dics got scrached and now i doesnt work. we have cleaned it threee times and it still does not work. What can we do?...

Unfortunately you will have to take the game back. Hopefully you bought a warranty for the game. If not then you will have to buy a new disc. no way to fix it now.

My nintendo wii dics is not working

Your Wii's laser needs to be cleaned or replaced. Sometimes even the spindle that spins the disc gets tight and needs to be replaced as well. We can certainly help you with this. Contact us today for a free quote.

Why is the dic saying it needs to be clean

Because it may need to be cleaned. Might also be the drive in the Xbox that needs to be cleaned.
