I have a 2nd copy of Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, which also has some scratches, that starts up fine but the menu music skips pretty bad.
it is my experience that they are more touchy. You cant resurface them as easy. If you buff the discs a lot to remove the scratching it makes the discs unreadable. I had a few GDs that looked great, but they would not play for this reason.Alec1382 wrote:I've heard that GD-R's are more finicky when it comes to scratches as well as resurfacing. In fact, I think it was someone on the forum who told me. Either way, I wouldn't be surprised if they were, what with the data concentrated twofold.
I'm not sure what parts of a disc are most sensitive, but I know that circular scratches are always more damaging since the data runs in that pattern.

Oh ok. I see. Yup. Its a yellow disc. Luckily I bought a red disc version a while back. Thanks, man. And don't worry. I take very good care of my games. If they are badly scratched, then I got them like that.
You guys are right about the buffing of DC games. The console is very touchy and knows when a game has been buffed. I have some extras lying around that won't play anymore because of it (or maybe because of it going thru a shitty buff job).

MK Gold - Yellow Disc
Hydro Thunder - Blue Disc
Blitz 00 - Blue Disc
Ready 2 Rumble - Yellow
ALWAYS go for their "HOT NEW" reprint discs which are all pressed with a Red disc cover for all these titles mentioned.
