The only legal solution for a replacement disk is to buy another box.  You could try emailing Bethesda and see if they will help but that depends entirely on them, they have no obligation to provide one.

The other option I've seen work is to take the disk to a video rental store. Most have industrial quality polishing kits for their DVD's and could try polishing the clear layer for you for a few $$ (again if you ask nicely :))

If the disk is that bad you've nothing much to lose by polishing.

The only file that seems to be bad is the data2.cab.

I can copy all other files to my harddrive.  Kinda weird.  Ill try the polishing.
