    I've got a couple of scratched up CD's where there are skips and drop-out. I read an old thread about this. It seems most folk were recommending a home product called some thing like "DVD Disc Doctor." Any other recomendation like that? Where can it be purchased?

    Rally car was is reported to work well, and is much cheaper than the products marketed to fix discs.:0

    Absolutely, and off of DVD's as well. Most of the good products will buff out or fill in the scratch so that the laser doesnt get redirected. These products have saved me a pretty penny either from friends who have scratched a couple of discs or ones that I have bought through Columbia house and when they arrive the disc is loose in the case. Instead of going through the time/trouble of sending the disc all the way back to the manufacture or Columbia I just use my CD- glop and bam its fixed [​IMG]

    If you're really good, you can use a Dremel tool with the soft buffing disc and get the scratches out of DVDS, LDS, and CDs. I've only messed up one DVD (City of Angels, no big loss), and have made numerous ill-treated discs playable.
