I have a disk that will not read, there are no scratches and nothing wrong, the disk is perfectly flat the only thing I can see is when I look at the data side of the disk the line that you can see where the data stops and the blank space starts is not uniform it is all wavy and warped looking.

Is there anything i can do to straighten this data line to hopefuly get the disk to read?

Have you tried sand paper? - No just joking don't try that!

I take you are talking about a CDR. If so was it written on the computer you are trying to read it on, and has it been finalized. If not that can cause problems reading it

Are you talking about a wavy line when looking at the edge of the disc? Because all discs have a wavy line like that.

It could be that your PS2 is faulty, not the disc.

If you have a DVD drive in your PC, put the disc in and rip the entire thing to an ISO image with a program like ImgBurn.

If it fails, then the disc is bad. if it succeeds, then your PS2 is probably bad.

some spelling lessons too would be helpful. I still think the disc is screwed next time keep the receipt

The only way to prove the disc is bad is try to dump a full image on your PC, though going by what you have said it probably is a bad disc
