How to Fix a Scratched CD or DVD
June 17, 2008 12:13am CST
If you have an orbital buffer along with some pads and polish for polishing your car, you can use it to fix minor scratches in CDs or DVDs that prevent them from playing properly. Step1 Mount the pad on the orbital buffer. Step2 Apply a small amount of polish to the pad. Step3 smear some polish on the CD/DVD. Step4 Hold the CD/DVD down on a flat, smooth surface with the label side facing down. Step5 Apply the pad to the CD/DVD surface and turn the PC on. Step6 Run the PC until the polish breaks down. Step7 Wipe off the polish residue with a soft cloth.

Hi Mayankbhushan, Thats a good method but it is not a permanent solution.It may work for sometime but how to recover data from even damage CD/DVD. I will suggest you to download free version of IObuster software which will extarct data from even damage CD and store it in your computer then you can play n number of times. Good luck!!

Thank you very much for the tips.I will use it in case there was an emergency.My NFSU CD 1 one time fell just like that and could not run on PC again.When I bought my new computer I could not install it.I will try using your steps and also the IO buster software.
