    Its scratched up and won't play.

    I have tried:
    just water
    toothpaste w/ baking soda
    licking it (don't ask)
    praying
    money
    I've even tried the banana trick!

    Help?

    Well theres special brand scratch cleaner sold at your local superstore that might work depends on the scratch size, it might be just damaged for good.

    How bad is the disc scratched? is it possible to post a picture?
    if the scratch can be seen to penetrate the protective layer of the disc, all hope is lost.
    If you cant get it to work go to gamestop or gamecrazy and they will "fix" it for i think like 2$

    In a TWO story igloo! I'm very lucky. It even has

    Can you tell me what this banana trick is? I'm curious(I have some scratched up games I have given up on).

    For your question, it really depends on how deep the scratch is. There are some machines that can temporarily fill the scratch, but will not fix it completly. The disc may be ruined. Worst comes to worst you have to buy another copy.

    Or the disc may be really dirty! Try cleaning it some more.

    Sorry.

    Yes. They have a machine that resurfaces the protective coating on the disc, that is if the scratch isn't too deep.

    Just go and pay the $5 to get the disc resurfaced, Your local Video shop should be able to point you in the right direction.

    I buy my games from ebay. You add $3.00 to the game ur perchasing and theyll give you 1 year insurance. even if you brak it yourself theyll give you another disk but its only covers 2 years.
