If the scratch id deep then it will have to be replaced but if it is shallow you might be able to save it just take a soft lint free dust cloth and wibe around the disk in circles until you cant see the scratch any more

if you have any question just ask! hope this helps!!

Disc is scratched xbox won't read disc is there any solution its a new disc it's scratched I think from the system it's all around the edge


You could try one of those disc repair kits I believe one is called the disc dr or something like that if the error is being caused by scratches that should fix it, if the scratches are too deep however, the disc is no good, to check this simply hold the disc up to the light, if you can see light clearly through the scratch than you know the scratch is too deep

My xbox keeps saying the disc is unreadable half way through games


the disc is either scratched too much
or
the xbox dvd lense is dirty

if other discs work then it is that specific disk

try cleaning the disc with a micro fibre cloth
start on the inside and rub outwards towards the edge of the disc

you can also buy a lense cleaning kit, you put a solution on a disc and put it in the drive
it should help to clean the laser

goodluck

Okay i have three xbox 360 games with three rings around the discs and many more scracthes how can i fix them a home for free


Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is; if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.


Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.

For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.

If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally required to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

New XBox 360 putting scratch in games


the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.

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.
