Sorry to say that but nobody can help you there anymore. If you can see through the disk you removed the thin layer that holds the information. Obviously more than any error correction can cope with. So you need a new disc.
For the future: if autoplay doesn't work, load the game from a shortcut to ts3.exe (or even to the launcher if you so desire).
Try to contact EA service for a replacement disc


good luck
