I have just restored a DVD that seemed deeply scratched. Just two or three minutes rubbing with a damp rag with ZINC OXIDE and dried off when dry. Rub center to out side only, never round and round Zinc oxide is used for the final polish in gemstone tumblers. (it's a great window cleaner also)

I tried Basso on my son's PS3 before and it does work. But I have also used tooth paste as well and have found it to work pretty well.

FOIL SCRATCH FIX: I bought a rare CD off Amazon and it had one 5mm long foil scratch and wouldn't play 3 of the tracks at all. All I did was cut out a strip of metallic chocolate wrapper that matched the size of the scratch and stuck some clear sticky tape over the top of it (label side of course). Now it plays without any problems at all.... yay!

But they leave the coolest double-swirl pattern. Another vote for using a little bit of tooth paste rather than resorting to brasso. First I always gently wash it with luke-warm water and just a couple drops of liquid dishwashing detergent (like Dawn)

Pledge was what we recommended when I worked for a formerly major cow-based computer company. It was the most likely common household thing, and it was easy to explain to users.

I've used Brasso! It worked wonders on an audiobook CD set I bought out of town that didn't work :) <3

I have been using Brasso for about 5 years now and it's THE BEST for taking out CD scratches. Has saved many a-CD!

I think that's considered "Fair Use" and has been decriminalized so long as you don't use the copy for any other purpose.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing you on the eleven o'clock news one day. Scary.
