take the top off the xbox... then take the top off the dvd-drive.. then take some alcahol and a q-tip and lightly dab the eye... then blow on it to dry.

i think he's talking about an actualy disk, the way i fix these is bring them to my local video store, and they run them through they're machine. im sure you can buy one of these machines at almost any electronics store, they usually work really well.

Good ole' fine grit buffing compound works good for me.

You could invest in one of those disc dr things. IMO they're worth it because if you save one disk it's payed for itself.
