How To Fix A Scratched Xbox 360 Game

In this video, you will see a technique for repairing a game disc damaged by scratches. Who knew it could be so simple. Now, you no longer have to accept the damage and can fix it.

Hi, I'm Rene Millman, editor of Absolute Gadget, and today I'll be talking about the Xbox 360. On this video, we'll be showing you how to repair scratches on Xbox 360 game discs. Now with your game disc, first of all , it's best to prevent rather than cure, basically if you can look after your game disc, it will prevent them being scratched.

So, again if you got the packaging it came with, leave it in the box, you can even leave it in the console because it won't spin around too much. Don't leave it facedown on the table, you'll scratch it; don't use it as a drink coaster, that's your best preventative tip. If you do find scratches, then you can take a lint free cloth and some alcohol and try to polish out the scratch, now this will polish out light scratches but if you've got a really heavy gouge, then you have probably ruined the disc beyond repair and there's no point in taking it back to the shop, because if you scratched a car, you would never be able to take it back to the dealer.

When you're polishing out the scratch, remember take the lint free cloth with some alcohol and wipe from the center outwards, always from the center outwards, never around and never rub it back and front, from the center, but keep on going. Remember, prevention is always better than cure. Look after your disc, and your disc will look after you.

And that's how to repair a scratch on the Xbox 360 game disc. .
