All right so this weekend i once again had nothing but praise for the internet, what i would do without it, nobody knows!
So this weekend, my friend and I were checking out the super rugby, its the usual thing we do every weekend. After the early games we were keen for abit of Forza motorsport 3. Now the last time we played this was a while back and so we were really keen to give it a bash. So....we insereted the DVD into the Xbox360, disk reading...and the bam "open tray", so we treid again but same result. On closer inspection of the DVD i noticed severe scratches on the DVD. So we tried this product called "CD Clinic" needless to say it did sweet bugger all! So now i thought this DVD is done for but then i had an idea, since the actual info on the DVD was not damaged, leaving me just the polycarbonate that was damaged, so i thought maybe if we remove a few layers it would work, Sandpaper came to mind but i shot that 1 down quickly, i then knew of shops that sell jewelry and watches had a buffering machine that took out small scratches from the glass but still it didnt seems viable. So then i went on the net, found out that you can possibly save your DVD, it suggested we try Brass-o polish and that kinda helped, we then tried toothpaste and the DVD was finally read but froze on the initial loading, we tried tooothpaste some more but alas no improovemnt. So then i knew of a VERY strong car scratch remover, fine micro granuels the take a layer of paint away, my friend also suggested we try the car buffer on the DVD also, on our first try it improoved, after the the 3rd buffering attempt the DVD worked! No problems, like brand new i will mention that the DVD's scratched we still visible but the surface was very smooth and the scratches far less prominent, so before you throw you DVD's or games away, think twice!
