Stupid question, I have a broken disc, anyway to install...

#1Deathx113Posted 3/25/2013 4:48:26 PM
the game data without any disc (Not the actual game, I'd still need the disc obv.)

Or do I need to drive out to gamestop to pick up a used disc and install that?

Thanks! :D

How is it broken? Descriptive details would help.

Some discs can be resurfaced. Basically they sand a layer off the top.
But if the scratches are too deep or if they run along the length of the disc (horizontal), then the disc is pretty much useless.

BTW
What were you doing with it...using it for a coaster, a Frisbee, a butt scratcher..?

Nothing haha, my sisters leave my games on top the 360 or where ever else.

Luckily they haven't played games in forever so most of my discs survived...

Grab a bottle of that, it's liquid gold for restoring scratched up discs yourself. One bottle will last you more than 500 discs.

Bad idea, too many abrasives in the paste, it will only cause even more scratches.

Or rent the game rather than buying a used copy? Install the rented game, take it back, play using your broken disc.

Though I guess you could give the used game to a friend or maybe even return it for store credit.

Go to Gamestop, buy a used version of your game, return it the next day for cash and just tell the employee you didn't like the game.
