    Talking How to fix your unreadable disk

    When content is unavailable, such as halo 3, or "disk is unreadable" , try this out.
    When my friend brought this up this we were having trouble with my halo dis.
    Step 1) Get a banana
    2) Peel the banana, and rub the inside of the peel gently on the bottom side of the disk (The side without the graphic)
    3) Spread the goo with your shirt or other cloth
    4) Wash off with water
    5) Dry it off nicely

    Enjoy



    This has not been tested on anything but the Xbox 360
    Edit: My other friend tried this and it didn't work- Reliability not that great apparently. But no harm in trying.
    Edit2: Edited with much better grammar and more clear steps. Enjoy.

    What I do is, buy AUTOMOTIVE compound ( 2000Grid equivalent ) Rubbing Compound, a MiroFiber Cloth(autozone) and rub it... the compound will sand + polish at the same time, and will remove scraches, make sure there is absulutelly NO dust on cd when rubbing ANYTHING on it, lol common sence I hope.
