It works and there's a few small tricks that you'll need to do in order for it to work. So we're going to have the disc that needs repaired or damaged here.

Fix a Scratched Video Game Disc

We'Ve got an unreadable Unreal Tournament, disc you're, also going to need some type of toothpaste that does not have abrasive material, such as the tiny beads that you see in some of the toothpastes and you're also going to need some white stick deodorant, no gel or anything Like that, this old-school white stick deodorant. Those are the few tools that you're going to be needing just a quick disclaimer. Please do not try this if you're not 100 %, sure that your disc is actually damaged and needs repaired. There may be some other issues with your console or your PC or any other disc reading device that you have so please just a disclaimer do this as a last resort after you try other options wouldn't want people to damage the discs further than it's already been Damaged.

so first thing: you're going to do is take your disk and run it under some water. You want to get it wet here, all the smudges off all the surface stuff and just reminder you're going to want to go from the center out using your fingers. Whenever you're applying any pressure to the disk never go in a circular motion that will damage the disk even further. So the first thing you're going to want to do is take your toothpaste and just take small amount of it again make sure it's something that doesn't have abrasive beads in it or anything of that matter. Just going to want to put it on the disk. Lay that to the side and you're just going to want to start spreading this around the disk.

You know heavier scratches, might require a little bit more, but regardless just make sure you're applying it from the inside out and once that's complete again be pretty gentle with it. Here is the trick and what other videos aren't going to show. You is that you are going to want to let this sit on the disk and harden and fill in any scratches or abrasions that may be on the disk and then allowing the toothpaste to harden is going to fill in those scratches and allow the laser to Reflect off the disk and kind of bypass the scratches so again, once you have that all applied evenly, we'll let it dry and we are going to come back in a few minutes. Everybody welcome back now we're going to be cleaning off the disk in which the toothpaste is hardened on a little bit. Give it a little bit of time, I'm going to follow the same method inside out using your fingers very gently. It'S going to take a little bit more time to get some of the toothpaste off as it has hardened, but that's what we want.

We want to get into those cracks and fill in the cracks again, probably thinking. Why are we wiping this dis off? Doesn'T that defeat the purpose? Well, we can't really let the toothpaste sit on there and chances are that cracks that need filled in are already filled in by the heart and toothpaste, and hopefully the water should not cause any issues all right. So now this is complete. We'Re just going to go ahead and get some type of soft cloth in this case, we're going to be doing a tissue and we're just going to go ahead and dry. This off now tissue is definitely not going to be the best way to do this. I would highly recommend maybe using a t-shirt, terry cloth towel something along those lines, make sure it's not embracive again just want to get the disk dry. So that way we can move on to the next step. This is 100 % Drive and we go ahead and let it dry here in a minute and we'll be right back alright for a final step. What we're going to want to do is go ahead and apply our stick. Deodorant just plain old white stick.

Deodorant can be used, whatever depends on how nasty or I guess and we're just going to want to go from the inside out and again just go ahead and apply this across the disk, and this is going to act as a second type of filling agent. For the scratches and other abrasions that may not be read by your laser properly again, once you get it applied on there, pretty good you're going to want to just go from the inside out again just make sure it's all filled out, and you guessed it. We are going to be waiting again for the deodorant to dry and fill in some of the cracks and create yet another layer of compound that will help reflect the laser and ultimately help the disc read so again.

Let that dry and come back in a few minutes. Everybody welcome back yet again we're now moving on to the final step of the process, and that is rinsing off the disc. After we have let the deodorant dry and fill in any remaining cracks again same process inside out make sure the deodorant is off of the disc again. The key steps in this video that are different and that you're not going to hear anywhere anywhere else excuse me, is letting the agents that we put on the disc dry for five to ten minutes or until they are dry whatever that may be. Your situation may be different before wiping them off and again that's really going to let the cracks and the scratches and any type of abrasions around the disc fill in that way.

The laser that is reading it can reflect and we've passed it. So we're done now with filling in any scratches again, final steps are just taking a nice cloth. I have an old t-shirt here. I want to go, get one and drying it off from the inside out. Making sure no compound is remaining on the disk finishing this out here, making sure it's all dry, being very gentle with it going from the inside out, not using any circular motions. And finally, we are looking good. So take a look at this disk. Look at it shine, it's got the scratches filled in give it a shot. Let me know how it works.
