If you have a nearby friend who also has the x box,I would try your games on their system first.It sounds kind of strange to need a laser eye.Usually a laser eye works or does not work.For it to not read a couple but work with a couple others is strange.If you have disassembled it before,you may need to clean the laser eye which is the only time that stuff should really be used and no other time other than person has disassembled themselves.If this is the case,your games will all work on your friends(or gamestop).If only a couple work on theirs too,then it is the games.If they all work on your friends,and you haven't taken yours apart,then it needs a laser eye.Did I confuse you???I am lol. Good luck! Greg
P.S.I used to work on Nintendos full time.

    nope on the friends worked just fine.

    Okay so if you haven't taken yours apart,it needs repair.I checked out X-box site and apparently if you request a repair online,it is supposedly cheaper.It requires some information off of your x-box.Here is the link.Check out the FAQ's for online repair.

Rockstar has released a FAQ regarding the copy protection that will be used in the PC version of GTA 4, here are the details
  • Activation via Internet (1x per system, no limits, Fallback for systems without web access)
  • Copy protection Securom: The original disc is required for playing (Execpt: Download version of GTA 4, for example from Direct 2 Drive)
  • Requirements for playing (singleplayer): Games for Windows Live account for saving/achievements (1x free creation), original disc, Securom runs in the background
  • Requirements for playing (multiplayer): Active internet connection, Games for Windows Live account, For uploading videos: Rockstar Social Club Account.

  • If you don't have web access or don't want to connect your gaming PC to the Internet, Rockstar wants to offer a not yet specified system to activate GTA 4 via another PC with web access. Details are supposed to be available on launch.
  • For the normal GTA 4 (PC) version with disc installation, activations are unlimited. But the original disc is required for playing.
  • This does not apply for legally downloaded versions of GTA 4: Depending on the vendor the following is possible: Five parallel installations with the possibility to revive a "free" installation, if an old installation is deleted. For this purpose the customer has to have web access with the PC GTA 4 is installed on.
  • Those playing GTA 4 with an illegally hacked version have, according to Rockstar, to fear that the game will not be fully playable.
  • If you change two major components of your PC (like the graphics card or the CPU), you will possible have to reactivate GTA 4.
Phew that was a mouthful I can tell you, whilst some will find it disappointing that GTA 4 uses such an invasive DRM system it does seem as if Rockstar has tried to weigh the need to protect their work against the inconvenience to the customer and for the boxed retail version there are no activation or install limits.

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's for sure scratched. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.

My p-2 wont read anything but one disk game-gta-3.isnt that old,or beaten,been left on a few times,,discs are in good shape,can i clean it.or ?i got a brand new game today,,wont do nothin,gta-5.,,,dvd vids...


Your PS2 is equipped with a cooling fan which keep it nice and cool, the only problem is that it sucks up dust in the process.

*** WARNING YOU MUST BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL ***
Take your PS-2 apart, you will see the "eye" or laser, this is something you NEVER touch!!!!

Do not use a air compressor, it will spray moister and it has to high of a PSI!!

Get a can of compressed air and hold it upright (do not tilt the can of air or shake it or it will spray nitrogen, freezing your PS-2) and spray the PS-2 with the air using 2 second burst, moving the PS ,not the air. Be sure to spray the "eye" and the housing.

Reassemble the PS-2 and it should work fine.

If not, you need to replace the laser.
