A lot of times when I play MW3, the screen freezes and it says "disc read error", does anyone know about how to fix. Thanks

Break the disc in half. It should start working.

What system do you use? Do you get the error before the game loads, or does it show up in the middle of the game?

Edit: I'd assume to clean the disc and see if that helps.

I use PS3 and it freezes during the game, never in the pre-game lobby

That game is terrible!

But here is a legit suggestion,

1) If its for PS3 you are SOL

2) If its for Xbox, install a different disc of MW3 to your HDD and it'll let you use the broken one. I did this with NHL 11 and Fallout: NV

I cleaned it and it worked for 3 games but came back

So it only occurs online? PS3 is pretty good for not scratching disks, but I'd examine it anyways. Check your network settings too..

If all else fails, google it.

(No Fanboy)

TBH, that happens a lot on PSN. I find Xbox Live > PSN.

I have a PS3, and I prefer it but I wouldn't get a game thats meant for online for the PS3 because I've had badluck with this sort of stuff.

Happened to my COD4

The only help you need is why you play that abomination of a game

MW > MW2 > MW3


This. Seriously... I played MW3 multiplayer on Steam (free weekend), and I had the worst time ever... Only good thing was that I was first on my team for all the matches that I played...

Anyways... If you're having problems with the game, it's best if you go to the Playstation forums or Googling. Asking on CDC almost never helps...

If there's a scratch on the disk, what I have always done is put toothpaste on my disk, very softly rub it around the disk and do it in warm water, then wash it off with a cloth that won't scratch the disk, do it for about 1-2 minutes.

This has worked many times for me before when my GTA 4 was messed up.

It used to happen to me some weeks ago, now it never shows "disc read error".

Step 1. Sell PS3

Step 2: Buy a PC


In english:

Step 1: Get $100 compensation for your console

Step 2: Spend like six or seven times as much

I have a great PC but I don't go waving it in console owners' faces. I also own a 360 and it does the job.

My advice to OP: If you aren't having the problem with other discs, it's pretty easy to surmise that it is your MW3 copy. If the problem is a scratch, you can get it fixed (the only place I know that does it is Willow Video in Cloverdale) or buy a new copy. Then, make sure you take care of your discs. My bro leaves all his discs lying around and it always ends up costing him. I'm not saying you do, but it's the leading cause of disk-scratching.
