Can you fix a "lazer-burn"? Plain and simple.
My friend moved his XBox while the disk was spinning and the disk was laser-burned. If you own an XBox you'll know what a laser-burn is. He seems to think that there is a way to fix it. He related it to the data recovery on a hard-drive; blah blah blah. I don't think it's recoverable, and it's defiantly not worth it.
The game in question is Guitar Hero: WoR. As you can see from Gamestop it is $40 new and $30 used. I'd say a used game would equal what he had prior to "the incident". So if there is a repair method that'll cost less than $30 it may be worth the repair, not including the time it'll take to repair it. Otherwise he should buy the game again as used.
Here is a picture of a laser-burn:
So, can it be fixed? Is it worth it?
