    Question unreadable disc

    brought a game off TM , arrived today and proceeded to play it.

    soon after i get the error message" this disc is unreadable"

    clean with a cloth and restart console(X360)

    did this several times but no go.

    emailed the guy whom i purchased it off and he says that it worked fine on his console, never any problems.

    my console is fairly new and none of my other games have brought up this issue.

    apart from a refund what else can i do to possibly get it to work?

    Take it to your local video (Civic/Blockbusters etc) shop and get them to reface/polish it for you, will probably cost you $5.

    Gamesman also does disc polishing

    If that doesn't work, then demand a refund

    You could try making an iso image of it on your PC, if it will read it, then burning a copy.
    Works for me sometimes.

    Wouldn't his console need a modchip before it can run copied games?

    (But trying to read it on the PC could help determine if it's the disc or console at fault)

    Doesn't sound like it is the seller's fault, just bad luck.

    Well the seller could be lying and it didn't work for him either and that's why he sold it
