    My September Official Xbox Magazine disc is defective. It's not a problem with my xbox because old OXM discs and all my games work.

    On their site the form is only for subscribers...has anyone who bought the magazine got a replacement? How do you go about doing it?

    I was looking forward to the SC2 demo and Halo 2 footage [​IMG]

    Take the magazine and the disc into the retail store you bought it from and exchange it. You paid for a magazine AND a DVD demo disc, if the disc doesn't work they should replace it. Most booksellers wouldn't even bat an eye...

    I've tried...and this isn't a bookseller. It's a local corner store. I think it took me 5 minutes to explain what the disc was (they don't speak english too well) and then they refuse to replace it. I knew if it went on any further it would've turned into a scene...[​IMG] over a magazine? no thanks.

    I'll never make that mistake again.

    So has ANYONE got a replacement?

    My disc sleeve says to go to their site for a replacement but the form is for subscribers only. What is the # on yours?

    Before you go to the trouble of returning, have you tried boiling the disc in water? It has fixed 2 OXM discs and a XBL beta disc for me.

    You just need to be careful not to boil it too long & keep it away from the sides & bottom of the pot.

    [edit: hehe, Like Dean recommended [​IMG] ]

    When in doubt, boil some water & get some clean sheets. At least that's what they always do in old movies. [​IMG]
