So it is scratched?

If you have more than one DVD drive and are attempting to play from a drive other than the one the original install was made from, that could be the problem.

If you can feel a scratch with your fingernail then the disc may need attention.
If you can feel the scratch... get a DVD Doctor (also known as CD-Doctor) and grind the disc according to the instructions, 95% effective if instructions are followed (I used to be in the Video Rental Business).

Could also be as simple as a dust, or a greasy fingerprint. Carefully wipe the disc from HUB to Outer EDGE. Never in circular motion.

Also, is the disc flat. Has it been subjected to heat and/or left lying flat with a (even) light weight on it. If so you will have to replace it.
