It all when I received a brand new copy of Modern Warfare 2 as a Christmas gift a few years back. When I started playing multi-player the disc stopped working and the console could not read the disc. This was very strange to me because I'm very careful with my console, and I'm also careful with my discs and keep them fingerprint and scratch free. I then ejected the disc from my console and looked on the back of the disc to find tape like debris on it.
This was rather unsettling for me because there was also the possibility that it spread into my console. I soon found out for sure later when I decided to play Battlefield then check the back of the disc where I then found the same debris which originated from the defective Modern Warfare 2 disc. A week later I replaced the MW2 disc with a new one, cleaned the small amount of debris off my Bad Company 2 disc and called it good. I had never encountered the issue again.... Until now.
February 22, 2013, I just inserted the Doom 3 BFG edition game (which I also received as a Christmas gift from another relative who purchased it brand new from wall-mart.) only to encounter the same problem. There was debris on the back of the disc. Was it the same debris from the MW2 disc that was just floating around in my console or did it come from the Doom 3 disc?? I'm a desperate gamer in need here.
