and it's all thanks to a disk read error. it's my favorite game. there's a smudge circle around the hole in the cd. how do i fix this? PLEASE REPLY IF YOU CAN!

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!

Y not buy a CD cleaning set or even send it off to one of those companies that fix scratches etc

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?

I hear baby oil works...and if your gonna clean it with a cloth, make sure that you clean from the inside out...and not just swiping across...yep

BOO ya!

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
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.

I have a fear of sending out merchandise back to compaines, I'm afriad I won't get it back...

Something very odd happend, I just put the word "d amp" and it got consored...

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....
