    sorry, been away. Yes, wet sanded using a bit of cooking oil, following up with a good wash with soap.

    holy crap! All i did was run the disk under some cold water and lay some toothpaste onto the disk. Then after washing, i would rub it with a very very very! soft cloth. it has to be really soft. I used the cloth that was for cleaning the inside of my saxophone.

    hey, whatever works!!

    I strongly recommend starting with the most gentle approach first...ie. pledge or some type of wax. Then moving to car polish, then toothpaste, and as an absolute last resort, wet sand. if sand, then follow up with polish, then with wax.

    I just use a soft cloth with some rubbing alcohol and usually works well. i wonder if the disc doctor repair kits that go for approx $25 @ walmart work alright.

    no no no, you guys got it all wrong. You have to take a ham sandwich with mustard (NOT MAYO!!) and rub it along the bottom of the disc is a circular motion. Mayo only works on NTSC-J discs.

    trE, have you lost it? Get with the program.

    Of course MAYO will work. You just need to ensure you rub with pickles first.

    For 2.00 my local game shop will repair any cd or dvd as long as its not a deep gouge.....i buy lots of used games from GameStop or Blockbuster really cheap, they sell them "as is' cause they may be damaged...usually buy for less then 5.00 bucks. Most times the damage is scrathed up disc, so i will take them to the shop and they repair them, i think i have had like two games that they could not repair becuause the scratches were just to deep. There rule of thumb is....if you can run your finger nail over it and it stops in the scratch..its no good!
