CDs start from scratch

Service restores damaged discs

A novel service to bring scratched CD-format discs back to full working order has been launched by Scottish company EuroFresh.

For a set fee — whatever the value of the original content — EuroFresh will restore damaged CD-ROMs, DVDs, music CDs, PlayStation games or any type of CD-format disc. The technique returns the original CD to working order, and does not involve salvaging the data and burning a new CD.

EuroFresh managing director Dominic Taddei says he can rescue CDs even though they have deep scratches, as long as the disc is not cracked and the scratches are on the reflective, not printed, side.

Discs can be sent to EuroFresh by post for a seven-working-day turnaround. Fees are £1.60 per disc for 1-50 discs, and there are discounts for greater quantities.

EuroFresh can be contacted on 01835 824 027
