    Cheers...so would you suggest non abrasive - just a good cleaning agent??

    at my local blockbusters they do a service to remove surface scratches for £2:)

    Yeah - I have seen that and I think Game do it too (??) . It isnt the money - my niece wants to borrow the discs for a party (Singstar) ...and yes i havent done anything about it so now need a quick fix if it will work. I have other discs but of course the one that isnt working is the one that the kids use all the time..

    baby wipes worked for me:thumbsup:



    Yep, something gentle enough to clean a bum sounds about right. I've heard stories of people ruining discs by using something too abrasive, or applying too strongly: toothpaste, cleanser, wet cement.

    Vodka gets rid of most problems for me.

    I use a disc repair kit, we have at work, apply solution put it in the gadget and turn the wheel a few times, voila. done.

    Gets rid of most of my problems too....but does it work on discs

    Mr Sheen and a duster works a treat

    I've tried the blow torch method on very bad scratches on dvd's and can confirm that works (practice on a few non impotant discs first though, ie. software discs from magazines scratch them up and try) I use a deal extreme jet torch for it.
    Same as other methods sacrifice a few crap discs to practice on.

    Brasso!

    The liquid brasso is well know as being good for cleaning and repairing CDs!

    I used to work for game and the disc cleaning only takes 15 Min's at worst and they come out looking mint.
    Ring your local store first as the fluid needed was always out of stock when i tried to order some.

    when i was younger i used to spray deodrant on my cd disks the wipe over used to play fine after
