The way I get smuges and stains out, are by using a cry tissue, and gently try to rub out the cd, in small circles. Or you could use a **** cloth, then a dry one to get it out. I hope it helps!

This happened to me; I got a used gamecube and it did this soon after... the best thing is to return it to where you got it.

But you cant do that if its a game you got like last year.

If you dont want to pay the money for a CD cleaning set then do what LiquidThunder said.

And if you can't get the smudge out, guess you'll just have to get a new game. >.< Gamecube games are getting much lower in price nowadays.

What is your favorite game, anyway?

Also Lens Cleaning Tissues work well for me. (Only problems are: they're supposed to be for my glasses and thay also make the disc smell like alcohol...)

Also if it's the Gamecube, send it to Nintendo
or
if the disc is defective (I mean it won't work even if it is completely clean and doesn't have scratches) send to either Nintendo or the company that made the game.

BTW what game is it anyways? Just curious.

Post about it in Questions and Feedback.
Problably a typo in the admin control panel when they were censoring out the word similar to the thing beavers make...


And if teh companies don't send it back, then sue them! The most useful thing in any government right now, lawsuits....
