Advice required on how to make scratched Xbox games playable again?

Found 24th Oct 2008
Was looking to know if anyone had any ideas of how to make scratched Xbox games playable again. I have tried the toothpaste method but unfortunately it did not work. The game starts ok but within 20 seconds it stops with the Disk unreadable error message.


Thanks in advance
