Tip 1 – How To Play With A Scratched/Damaged Disc!

As many gamers have encountered, broken or scratched discs can be a real pain. Whether you bump your console as it’s running, or just through normal wear and tear, these scratches can cause your game to stop working! Now, if you are like me, you really will appreciate this tip I’m about to share with you.

Once your disc has been scratched, it may seem to be useless, but that is not true! So, here is my tip on fixing your scratched discs!

So, this is how it’s done. When you have your scratched disc, you will need to find a place where you can borrow another copy of the exact same game. Whether it be from a friend, or even from Blockbuster or similar companies (Redbox, Gamefly, Ect.) After you have obtained the extra copy, you are going to save it to your hard drive. This can be done through the Xbox Dashboard, and pressing save game to hard drive or something along those lines. After you have done this, you are done with the spare disc.
