How to fix a scratched Xbox 360 disc?


I bought a used game from Gamestop and when I put in the 360 it actually thought it was a DVD movie. Upon closer inspection of the disc there is a huge scratch. It isn’t deep enough to damage the data layer, but it is pretty deep. Anyway that I can fix this at home or do I have to get a new disc at Gamestop?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I would take it back to gamestop and tell them they sold you a defective disk. They can either replace it or fix it.

  2. you could try using a disk cleaner it might work best buy sells some pretty good ones or you cant trade it in whichever is easier

  3. If you still have your receipt go ahead and exchange it, they have an obligation to provide a working product. However if you’d like to try it from home (if the gamestop near you isn’t very close or something) some video stores will have disk resurfacing machines on hand for their own DVDs/games. If you ask nicely they may run it on yours for free or a minimal fee. I don’t know how effective it will be on a “huge scratch” as you put it though. Good luck!
