I bought a CD from a boot sale and it appears badly scratched, does anybody know of how to repair the scratches. the scratches are not deep, but there is plenty of them!

Did i read somewhere that you can use Brasso to help this?? Or am i having a 'senior moment'?!?

Over to you guys! And gals!

You can buy some liquid that you can put on the disk to remove the scratches....

If you have a CD burner, then you could just make a copy and keep the orignial in a case somewhere (and use the copy instead)... As then you can just create another copy if the other copy is damages or lost...

Music Lover,

You read right about Brasso.

Place a few drops of Brasso onto a lint free cloth, and rub the disc gently in a straight radial motion from the inside to the outer edge. Do this round the entire disc, but NEVER rub in a circular motion.

Cheers, Chris.

Music Lover,

If forgot to add....Cleaning Off,

give the Brasso 2-3 mins to dry. Take a clean cloth and rub the disc clean, bearing in mind the directions in my first post. You may need to repeat the process for badly scratched discs.

Cheers, Chris.

The best idea is to make a copy, or if you don't have a burner convert it to mp3 so you can play it on your PC.

Hopefully the scratches are on the surface and not down in the burn, Tooth paste will also work, gently rub following the grooves burnt in then wash off.

I've also used T-Cut car paint restorer using the same method as Chris Webster then a wash under a warm tap (the disk, not me!)...alB

Jeweller's rouge or a flannalette cloth impregnated with it is apparently effective.

I have bought this and it actually works not only on light scratches but also on deeper scratches as well!
