I've done a couple of searches and come up empty. I've got a couple of scratched CDs I want to repair. What is the best gadget for repairing CDs?

How about Skip Doctor?

Or, DiscRx?

Or, Scotch CD and CD-ROM Surface Scratch Remover Kit?

I've used the Skip Doctor to repair several scratched DVDs and CDs. It's the only one I know that repairs really deep scratches. It sands off a thin layer of the surface. After you're done, you can see how it's "ground" down. Depending on how deep the scratch is, it may take several runs but I have yet to find a scratch I couldn't get out. It doesn't look pretty but it really does work.
