FF XIII Oily disc?

#1KaiKun91Posted 4/26/2013 2:04:24 PM
Played FF XIII and beat it a long time ago but wanted to re-play it again but PS3 won't read it then I take the disc out and look at the disc. The disc has a oily surface look to it. All my other PS3 blu-ray disc work fine, any solution to this?

What an odd question, so there is no possible way that this oil isn't from misuse, and that the disc itself is sweating?

Maybe just clean it off with a gentle cloth and purified water.

I take care off my game. Played fine for a couple of day then when I put it back in, the PS3 make ticking noise and won't read it.

FFXIII is on a dual-layered disc, and all dual-layered Blu-ray discs have that oily-looking surface, it's normal.

as for why your PS3 won't read it, i suggest wiping the disc with a cloth.

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

The first data layer in the Blu-Ray disk is so close to the bottom of the disk that even a minor scratch or fingerprint causes read issues. Just clean the disk. Fortunately they put a scratch protection coating on the disk to help prevent scratches since they have the potential to cause major issues on the disk compared to DVD's that are more scratch tolerant.
