Official XBOX Magazine Disk Boiling

Ok this is one of the stranger things I have had to do. In all my years working with electronics I have never once thought boiling water would be the answer to a DVD disk read error. My Official XBOX Magazine (OXM) issue 53 demo disk would not play in my XBOX 360. I tried cleaning it, polishing it and cleaning it again but nothing worked. So I was complaining out on the XBOX Forums and someone with the gamertag "Call Me Early" suggested I boil the disk for 5 seconds. Honestly I thought they were crazy but I had nothing to loose so I tried and to my surprise it worked. Now I got all the OXM points for that month and I am happy. I hope I don't have to do this very often.
