So I am level 59 in MW2 multiplayer, and am planning on getting MW3 in the near future. I want to be able to prestige before then so I can get the bonuses listed in this answer. But whenever I play on any maps other than Highrise, Querry, and Afghan, My xbox crashes and says

The disk you have entered is unreadable. 
Please try wiping it with a cloth or cleaning it.

My disk is scratched, but I am afraid of fixing it because all of the reviews I have seen of people do this have been good like:This saved me $60!!!!!, to You suck!!!!!!!!!! You ruined my disc Obvisously it will take me forever to prestige if I can only play on 3 maps. Is there anyway around this? Also is there any ways to fix it for free that you have used and work?
Thanks in Advance

  • Sounds like your disc has gone bad. That sucks.

    Double check the disk to make sure it isn't scratched. I had a similar problem caused by a ring around the disk. If that's the case, you can either try to repair it yourself or see if a game store offers disk repair.

  • @Fluttershy It is scratched, and a local store does do repairs..... I will try that Commented Apr 21, 2012 at 2:10
  • @Fluttershy Do you know of any do-it yourself ones that work? all of them on youtube have comments like "This worked so well!!!!" and at the same time "You ruined my disc" Commented Apr 22, 2012 at 14:47

Most nearby video stores ( now commonly Family Video or GameStop ) will do disc repairs but it depends how deep the scratches really are.

I would assume most replies of You Suck! You ruined my disc are that in actuality, a customer unable to come to the terms that their disc has become unrepairable prior to trying to clean it (and now has to bite the bullet of buying a new one or moving on).

I would try a local video rental store or GameStop (if applicable). Ultimately, if these options fail, buy a new disc or moving on to (in your case) Modern Warfare 3. I do not think it is worth it to buy a disc cleaning kit if you have already tried the first option. At some point your recovery efforts may become more expensive then purchasing a new, unscratched game.

  • Okay, I have a GameStop near me... Thanks for your help! Commented Apr 25, 2012 at 22:46
