GTA IV disk damaged! Any way around? Answered

I have had GTA IV for a while now, but now my twerp of a little brother decided to "borrow" the disk without me asking! When he returned it he said he had dropped it and there is now a massive scratch down the middle and it no longer functions! I still have all the files on my laptop, but is there any way to make the game run without the disk? (Like a patch or something) I know this exists for III, San Andreas and Vice City as my friend has them, but I'm not sure about IV. Please help!!!

how deep is the scratch? if it's a light scratch you can buff it off using a tooth brush and tooth paste or a dremel polishing wheel and polishing solution. if it's really deep-as in so deep that the metal surface inside the disk is scratched then there's nothing you can do to repair the disk. as far as just getting it to work i'm sure there's an illegal copy of it on the internet somewhere.-but i'm not suggesting that because it's illegal.

Actually, 2 or 3 hours would be a more accurate e.t.a. for a file size such as that, but if you declare your right on this earth to be a man, to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, to access your old GTA IV install, and you intend to bring it back into existence by any means necessary...
Than an .iso image of the disk may be your only hope...

Don't think that would work, it goes pretty deep. I'll try though.

The underside is pretty thick, grind enough off and you will get it to work, but it's a slow job. L

Oh, I thought that scratching it up more would make it worse! Anyway I'll check to see if my local game dealer can repair it: just wondered if there was a patch to save time and effort.

You might be able to fill it with clear-resin and then polish it?

Technically, since you own the game, it isn't illegal to download the game and play it. Someone confirm?

Two things: 1) It is illegal 2) It comes in like 40 parts and takes approximately 1 million years to download

Wait, is this the full game or just an app to run the game without the DVD?
