Get toothpaste and a yellow duster
slowly rub the toothpaste into the scratched area only in small circular motions.
continue until toothpaste is almost gone,
rinse excess paste off with cold water and then dry disk with the another yellow duster cloth
also in future do not lie your xbox horizontaly (often the cause of this) keep it upright like the picture in this post.

Dis is unreadable for the game black ops


There is a good chance that your game is scratched. Try cleaning it using the steps below:

Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part of the disk.

Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.

If this doesn't work, try restarting the Xbox and opening and closing the disk tray a few times.

If it is still unreadable, I'd recommend taking the disk to a local game store. Many places will offer a "buffing" service to clean the disk that can cost approximately $5-$10. There is chance that this will render the game unusable, so only do this as a last resort.

Hope this helped,
Dan

I put in the game Call of Duty; Black ops into my xbox. Sometimes it reads it as a DVD and other times it say "unable to read disk, clean with soft clothe." I take the game out and wipe it off...


Typically it is from a dirty or scratched DVD. Some fabrics may scratch the dvd. It is best to use a very soft flannel cloth only and even with that handle carefully.

You can also use a wax like candle wax and softly rub it over and wipe it off. It must be a true soft wax, not a silicon wax. That will fill in tiny scratches when cleaning isn't enough sometimes.

I have a caset i play it for 15minute and it stop playing and tell me to clean the disc with a soft cloth and restart the console it


if you are talking about a disc try using a little bit of deoderant or after shave on a soft cloth and rub in a small circular motion starting at one side and working your way around (see video). dont use too much but if you just use a little bit and rub it properly it should work. if that doesnt work then the disc is scratched at a certain part and cannot be fixed. my method is proven to work if done right. i have had games cleaned by video store cleaners and i have even bought special disc cleaning kits and that and nothing could fix my discs but when i did this method i have had even the dirtiest scratched discs work again. this method works 90% of the time but like i said if this wont fix it nothing will. hope this helps.

Its says plz clean disk whith soft cloth


Maybe your disk it too scratched for the console to read it. Look for places in your area that will buff the disk to get the scratches out.

My son just knocked my console while i was playing and its scored the disc and it will not read it now


I'm very sorry. I'm not sure what kind of advice you're looking for. Your disc is damaged and you will need a replacement.

Microsoft tried to offer a warranty for this. Unfortunately they only cover certain games, and usually charge you $20.

I suggest, for your best bet, call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX and speak to a representative. Tell them that you didn't TOUCH the console. Tell them you were playing, you heard a grinding noise, and you found that it was scratched. Then demand that you receive a replacement.

This is the best advice anyone could really give you in this situation. I wish you the best of luck.

I get a can't read disc message with my wii fit


even small scratches can cause disk read errors. Try cleaning it again with a little white spirit using a soft cotton cloth then dry it off with a soft cotton cloth. If it still does not read, a lot of 'game' shops repair scratched disks for about £3.00.

I hope this helps

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.

MY GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 WONT PLAY IT KEEPS STOPING THE GAME AND TELLING ME 2 CLEAN THE GAME WITH ACLOTH THEN PLAY IT THERE IS KIND OF BIG SCRATCH ON IT BUT ITS NOT THAT BIG SHOULD I JUST BUY ANEW ONE


Hi,
you could buy a new game, but it,s worth trying this disk repair solution first. i,ve been repairing game-music cds/dvds for a couple of years, with 80% sucessful results.
1:) Find an empty jewel Case ( plastic cd holder case ) put the game-disk into the case upside down. ** Underside Facing Up**
2:) Take a soft-cloth ** Yellow Duster Type** and apply a small amount Of T-Cut Or Toothpaste. to the cloth.
3:) holding the disk with one hand, to stop it moving. use your other hand to work the cutting paste into the disk, around the scratched area. using light to medium pressure.
4:) once you,ve polished the area around the scratch, using a clean piece of soft cloth, buff to a polish.
5:) once the scratch has been removed, polish with a light solution of furniture polish, to fill in any surface inperfections.

If your in the UK, i can repair the disk for you.
