There are scratch removal kits on the retail market. They cost $20-$50 (US). They are not guaranteed to work because it depends how deep the scratches are. 1/100 of an inch could make a difference if the scratch penetrates the information portion of the disc it can not be repaired. But light scuffs and scratches can be buffed out with most of the kits that yuo get at the store.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

My sons new gamw is saying that it is ureadable


Does the system have problems reading any other games? If the system plays other games fine then it is the game itself that is the problem. If you are still able to exchange it, the store should be able to give you another copy to try. If you can not return/exchange the game, you may still have a chance of being able to restore it. Many video/game/electronic stores that deal with second-hand games will often re-surface the game (probably for a small fee) which will remove the scratches from the disk and make it readable by the system. If the system has problems reading any game, I can help you further if you can provide a little more information such as what type of video game system you are trying to use. Good luck!

I bought a game but my sons game cube wont read it it just says " the game disc could not be read please read the Nintendo game cube instruction booklet for more info " ? but i don`t have it...


Assuming it's a GameCube game, that means there is either an error in the code on the disc, or the disc may be damaged. Take it back to the store you purchased it from, with receipt in hand, and exchange it. If other games work properly then it's the disc that's the problem. The manual wouldn't help you.

Got a game cube for my son. inserted a game and it says no disk. we blew in the cube and made sure the games aren't scratched. still says no disk. what do you think we should do next?


Well there seems to be something wrong with the eye of the disc reader in the game cube. It looks like a White little orb in the center where the disc goes. You have to buy a special cleaner for it. And use only a certain type of cloth. Ask your local video game shop if they have some. just call them and I am Sure they would be happy to assist you.

purchase a CD scratch removal kit from a store or garage sale. You will have a very hard time getting the scratches out smoothly without the machine.

Cant get games to play on my sons psp


This may be a number of problems. The disc might be scratched or damaged. Or there could be dust on the leans.

You say it's a second hand PSP? In that case, you may need to repare it. I'm not quite sure where to go to get repares. Sorry.

Game Cube will not read disks. Please help!


you can clean the disks using tap water and then drying with soft cloth have you tried a lense cleaner to clean the laser on the cube get a good brand one not a cheap one also you can buy a disk cleaner that gently takes the scratches out of cds and gets them as new but you will have to shop around to get one but these work on anything cd dvd games the lot so deff worth having one as lots of people throw out dvds cd and games due to the scratches stopping them working but remember the data on a disk isnt on the plastic it is on the layey the other side of plastic the plastic is their to protect the data getting damaged so removing the scratches does not damage the disk if you have scratches this will affect the disk because the laser cant read through the scratch so polishing these scratches out will make the disk as new not many people know you can do this so consider yourself having privalaged info hope this is some help to you but you might have to ask arround for a disk repair so good luck you could even charge people to repair their disks and games this works for anything on a cd style disk.........................................................
