Get a ring off the back of my disc

Try going to a video store or Gamestop and ask them to clean your disc with the machine they use for polishing disc's. Not sure if they still use them anymore though. Also, risky, you can try and use toothpaste and use gentle strokes from the outside of the disc in, but not in a circle (no counter or clockwise rubbing on a game disc) and that might work... Good luck

I'm trying to play a game on my Xbox. This one won't work, but others will. I need help!

this sounds bizzar but rub toothpaste around the ring and it will give a temporary fix, or go to gamestop and say I got this for my birthday and its not working and they will most likely give you a new copy

You can try using toothpaste. I've tried it several times and it has worked for me. Here's how you do it.
  1. Grab a bottle of toothpaste and your disc
  2. Put a good amount of paste on the disc
  3. Take a soft cloth and rub the toothpaste over the disc. Be sure to give it some pressure.
  4. Turn on a sink and wash the toothpaste off your disc
  5. Place disc in Xbox and enjoy

How do you remove big marks coz my game wont keep playing it just gets stuck near the start and i really wanna play that game.

Try the disc in another Xbox. If it works there, it's the xbox, if not it's the disc.

If you need to remove scratches from the disc itself, clean the disc with an anti-static cloth (glasses cleaner) and try it. If that doesn't work, apply normal toothpaste, a small amount, to the disc with your finger. Rinse it off with water and dry it with another anti-static cloth.

My xbox 360 keeps saying that the disc is unreadable

Try to put in some different game discs, or try a dvd. Otherwise go to and go to their support page and that can help you.

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.

It says the disc is unreadable and ive cleaned

Ok this worked on my mw2.
Take some toothpaste, a soft cloth.
wet the dist then dab a small amount on the game disk. (NOTE!!) STREAK OUTWARS TO THE EDGE NOT IN CIRCLE IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS IT WILL MAKE IT WORSE!.
after youve done this wash and repeat 10-15 times (note) it will take about an half an hr if you do it properly.
