I need to fixed a scratched halo 2 disc for my nephew

I dont want to spend 30 bucks for a game doctor (the one that spins the disc)

I was at toys r us today and say a scratch remover for 9.99

called scratch genie by intel. you do it manually with solution and an abrasive thingy..

does it work? I never used any scratch fixers before besides my spit & tshirt :drool

thanks

You might check to see if any used cd or game stores in your area offer resurfacing services. It'll likely only cost you a couple of dollars to get a single disc done. I'd avoid any of the DIY options other than the disc doctor as they tend to abrade the disc rather unevenly.

This man speaks the truth. Proper resurfacing equipment costs around $5000, not $30. I've seen the results of a Game Dr. and I've seen the results of the professional stuff, and paying a shop to do the job is worth every penny and then some.

 

Of course, since I know the local indie rental store, I get mine done for free...

I've fixed a few scratches on CD's and DVD's with the Disc Doctor. It works as advertised, but upon close inspection under light, it creates numerous light scratches on the disc which apparently do not affect functionality.

 

Ironic it creates new scratches to fix existing scratches, but it does work.
