Ok first off I did not discover this, im jsut here to spread the word. I recently got the new oxm and when I opend the demo disc it had about 40-50 scratches on it! (not kidding) probably the worst looking disc ive seen in some time. I popped it in my xbox and it wouldnt load at all. (it gave me the dirty disc error)

so i posted a thread on teamxbox and a couple people told me the most craziest thing to do, yet they said it would allow me to play the game cause it would fix it!!! well heres the steps....

#1 boil a pot of watter
#2 put your cd in the boiling water face down (like a cd player)
#3 leave the cd in for 20-30 secs but no longer.
#4 then pull out and airdry

pop it in your xbox and i guarentee it will work. again i promise to you im not joking! I know weve all received at least 1 oxm that would'nt work so try it! what do u have to lose? a game that already wont work?

also please mods keep this at the top. sticky it this is important info.

Old news =)

As the beta testers have been doing this with their disks since September.

But yes it will definitely work. But you do it too many times and you will end up ruining the cd. Why? Teh scratches you are "eliminating" you are actually boiling away a layer of lacquer. Once that lacquer is gone your cd is worthless.
