    You need ironoxide or aluminumoxide, in the paste form and use a polishing cloth. It will take a LONG time to polish by hand.

    I have used rag wheels on an electric grinder, and polidhed CDs (with the paste) that were "hopeless", and recovered them 100% But you got to be careful because I had one catch the wheel and it ripped the CD from my hand and cracked the CD.

    This medthod won't fix deep scratches, but it will fix minor scratches and fogged areas.

    You can also try car polish.

    As soon as you get the CD to work... Copy it to a new CD-R.

    I believe you can get free software that can recover your damaged cd's. Then when this is done ,as Virtual says copy it to a new cd or your hard disk if you dont have a cd-r.
    The best way to keep a secret:- Tell everyone not to tell anyone.

    Windex, not alchohol.


    You got to make backups and use those, if you are that worried about dusting the CD. Christ, I just blow a little spit on the disk and wipe it on my shirt. Never had a problem.
