Fixing a screwed up game disk



Tried to play RDR undead nightmare today and can't get past the first loading screen without it locking up.

The disk doesn't look scratched or anything and every other game works fine.

What do y'all suggest?

Toothpaste or dried seamen on the disc.

I perfer the seamen route as when it is smeared across the disc it is much clearer and makes it easier for the laser to read it. Just place it on the back and smear in a circular motion with your index finger and then place in the sun.

Also it is easier to clean if it doesnt work the first try and you wanna try again. Toothpaste is a bitch.

Easiest way to fix it is to redbox the game, install it, and then use your own disc. As long as it can recognize that it is the game, it'll play.

My borderlands two disc is scratched all around the place, but thats the method I used to resolve the issue.

Didn't realize I could do that. I'll probably go that route instead of blowing a load on my game disk.

To be fair, he said seamen. Problem is, by the time they get old enough to dry out, they have gained a higher rank.
