i recently went to play GTA San Andreas for my PS2 and to my dismay its was all scratched to shit. it was in the case and it still manages to get scratched. it will do the intro videos and go to the loading screen but when it gets to the end it says error reading disc. i tried using a disc cleaner thing with the hand crank cleaner thing but that didn't work. any suggestions on how i can play it again. i know i can just buy another one but the one i have is one of the originals i bought the game when it first came out

If anyone has there own remedies on how to fix a moderately scratched disc it would be helpful,,,, thanks

Well they sell it on Ebay.

People say putting toothpaste on your game will clean it but I don't recommend that. xD

I doubt toothpaste will help. xD
I haven't a clue to be honest,I had one of those hand-crank things too,they seem to make it even worse.

I've heard washing up liquid helps though.

Washing CDs and DVDs with hot water, washing up liquid and a soft cloth sometimes helps a little bit. Obviously don't play the game until it's dry though

this has nothing 2 do with the thread but is the greatest hits version of a game different from 1 that isn't?
