Hi Has anyone come across a good way to repair lightly scratched discs? or is there another way to take the data from them?

Ive bought various cheapy gadgets before - which never work!

Thanks

thanks - i tried that (thats what i was talking about when i said cheapy gadgets), i think it's rubbish! may as well run a damp cloth over them!

Rubbish? I found it to be very good on my discs. Perhaps your scratches are a bit to pronounced. Anyway, I am sorry it did not work for you.

ok, thanks for the suggestion anyhow.

This stuff will bring out any depth of scratch if you use enough effort. I have used it many many times on discs belonging to others but it is hard work. If it's a small gouge in the disc then I use a cotton bud cit right down in a low voltage drill. Finish off with a duster and some spray polish... it won't harm the disc in the slightest and the disc will look pristine, no swirl marks or dullness.

thanks guys. i have now found that they work on my PS3! Can i copy them from there!? thanks

Dunno is the honest answer lol

If it does play in a PS3 and not on your PC then it's marginal. If you haven't already doen so try giving it a good polish with a duster and spray on furniture polish (Mr Sheen type... that's suitable for all surfaces).
