I just found my copy of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblvion, but when I play it it freezes a lot, mainly because the disc is scratched up


So is there an easy way (besides going to a store) to fix the disc?

If the CD is badly scratched, you can't do much I think. If it's just a bit grimy then give it a gentle wipe with a clean cloth. Getting a CD repair done at a store would probally cost as much if not more than buying a new disk btw, assuming they don't just wipe it with a cloth and give it back to you.

They should really think of adding a google search to this site, new threads would half in 1 day.

I tried using toothpaste on one of my old CD's. I can't say it improved, but it didn't really suffer from it.

However, I wasn't sure if you just smear it with toothpaste and wash it off, or if you actually have to buff it.

I've seen people buffing CD's with metal polish, and that supposedly removes scratches. I find that more plausible than bananas, toothpaste, coke, baking soda and peanut butter.

In any case, it's got a plastic surface. Toothpaste won't damage it unless you apply it with a razor blade.

I had exactly the same problem with the same game; if you just want to play the game, do the following:

1) Google Oblivion NO CD Patch
2) One of the results should give you a thing you can install to run the game without inserting the CD.
3) It's perfectly fine since you purchased the game.

Oblivion crashes and freezes a lot without the disk being scratched because the programmers were n00bs and didn't test it enough.

And if you have the PC version, the disk is only used to verify that you have it, and you didn't just get your friend to install it on your PC.
